I have been having this burning sensation on my back as if I have a severe sun-burn. Do any of you here get that feeling, and is it on your back as well?? Is it from the nerves? thanks  D

This happened to me last year when I had a reaction to plaquanil. It started on my chest and back. I felt and looked sunburned over my entire body and it got worse after a week. I went to dermatologist, LLMD, primary care, and another doctor who said go home and take benadril. After a few more days I ended up going to the ER and stayed in the hospital for a week with what it called a stevens/johnsons reaction. The first 2 layers pf my ENTIRE skin peeled off my body from head to toe. I even lost alot of my hair. The reaction lasted months. I am not saying you have this but if you haven't been in the sun I would pay close attention to what you are taking and if the redness is spreading. Blessings

Thanks for your reply. I met a woman that had experienced Stevens Johnson. How horrible that you went through that. I am not on antibiotics and it is not red to look at, only the burning sensation. I am thinking it resembles something like shingles pain. Hot, dry and burning. Thanks for answering.  D

When the LLMD was asking me the symptoms of bartonella, burning sensations was one of them.

That could explain the extreme burning tongue, lips and mouth for a few years. That has improved greatly after the first year of treatment.

Dowa - That's how the pain started for me too. "Like how a bad sunburn feels" is the only way I could find to describe it to my PCP. 

It began in my back and eventually spread up my neck & face and down my arms & legs. And yeah, it does feel like it could be nerve pain. Actually, that's what I thought it was early on long before Lyme was even considered.

Is it a new symptom for you?

I have had a staph infection on my skin and this symptom came at the same time. I have chronic infections due to being immune-compromised. I just dont know if the two are related. What did your LLMD say caused the burning? I do not have an LLMD. My burning is also on the back and neck.   Thanks D

I get this feeling on my feet because of the neuropathy I have. They become very sensitive and feel like they have been sun burned.

No LLMD appt just yet.

My Quest test results have always been negative so an IgeneX test is the next step for me. However, I was on antibiotics for several weeks and the LLMD I will be going to see said to stop taking them and wait four weeks before getting the test or it may skew the results. It seems like it's always about waiting with this thing...Thankfully, four weeks is this Tuesday so, YEAH! But then it'll be another two weeks of waiting before the results come back.

At least my symptoms have lessened, which could very well be because of the antibiotics I was taking!

When my appointment does eventually get here, I will ask him what causes the burning and let you know.
