I am so sorry that you are feeling so poorly. What you are describing sounds just like the Lyme neck thing that a lot of us go through! I know it's back in full force for me lately!
So I can really feel for you! I frequently have it affect my arms and even clear down into my wrists and into my hands as well. I haven't found anything pill wise that really helps this. about
the only things that have helped me is heat - which I always try first as it usually will help the most if I catch it early, or ice packs. I use the ice packs after I've tried heat and find that it hasn't helped a bit because I let it go on too long before trying to do anything. Sometimes even a good soak in a nice warm bath or detox bath helps as well.
The skin thing is a neuro symptom as well. It's weird, but some of us actually have enough skin pain to keep us from wearing certain clothing - or as in my case, showering or wearing any
clothes every once in a while! I really hate it when my skin gets super touchy! It seems to complicate everything! Even the water hitting my skin can be too much some days.
These are both symptoms of Lyme and/or other TBI's. Are you detoxing? As these symptoms can be caused by the die off of bacteria and your body not being able to get rid of these toxins very well. That's why we kind of push detoxing here. It can really make a difference when you are able to do it!

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, making long paragraphs very hard to read.
