Lately my skin has been feeling weird. It's been itchy, sensitive and sometimes my face feels warm. It's just a weird rashy feel, but I have no rashes, and has a little "sting" to it. I have felt this a few times before in the last year, but here lately its bothering me more. I'm not on any meds, and I haven't been eating anything different. Anyone else have skin issues? oh and my face, when it feels warm, or hot, it's really not red, and maybe the stinging is really burning? lol. To many different symptoms with fibro.

Hi Karen~

I've heard many people talk about this type of symptom. It sure sounds annoying! I have a very rare form of dermatitis. It was diagnosed about 7-8 years ago and I've had fibro much longer than that. I have no idea if skin problems could be related but who knows. Like you said, there are way to many symptoms with this DD. Next time you go to your doctor you might ask him if he has any ideas.

Hugs,

Hi Karen,

I have this too. Sometimes it feels like I have a sunburn that's healing especially on my back causing that itchy feeling. What helps me deal with it is lots of lotion and not wearing scratchy clothing. Also use a very mild body wash.

I am happy to say the only medication I take is ibuprofen at night to sleep along with my supplements for sleeping. I am on a regiment of different supplements, I eat very nutritiously, and ever since my injury years ago I have been doing my prescribed stretches x2 daily.

YES! I have that symptom.  Sometimes it gets so bad it is hard to find clothing that I can tolerate on for a full day of work.
My skin will hurt, is itchy,  it feels hot, yet there is no reddness and no rash.  This will happen especially if there is an irritant, like a label or stitches in clothing.  I can't wear anything but cotton now and everything I buy I make sure is very soft with no itchy stitching on it.  I always have to tuck a soft tshirt into my pants.
This symptom can come and go.  But when it comes it stays for a bit.
 
I tried anti chafing cream, that helped a bit also. 
I feel this symptom goes along with our hypersensitive nervous systems.  Right along with my hypersensitivity to sound and odors. shocked
Wishing you an itch free day,
Susan

I have this symptom. It's like a part of your skin is hyper sensitive, like all the nerves in this part of your body are on high alert, responding to just about anything. Including air.
I put ice and cortisone cream and it helped a bit, and it goes away after a little while.

Karen,
I have this symptom too. I have been dealing with it for over two years I don't know if it is a recognized symptom though. Mine is usually set off by cold, sometimes a warm bath works, other times it is just too painful. So far non of the medications I take (neurontin, flexeril and tramadol, I also take wellbuterin and levothroxin) help it. I now only buy "fuzzy" socks the kind made for lounging around the house, I wear all the time. I wear fleece pj pants, and I have a heated fleece throw that I use when I am home. I have learned the feel of what I know for sure will be uncomfortable and will not buy anything that feels that way.

I wish you luck with this.

It's so nice to hear I'm not alone in this. I'm hypersensitive to odors and sounds too. I have the sensation of itchiness all the time, but sometimes it's worse than others especially if I'm wearing scratchy clothing and have a label that's bothering me.

It's even difficult to sit on scratchy furniture. Sometimes I think I live in a bubble.

I have had "sore skin" for years, especially if I get in a draft . It's mostly my arms and torso.............that soreness you get with the flu. I did one read that it was overly sensative nerve endings.

It's nice to see this thread come forward. I would be interested in knowing if those of you with this skin condition have an injury that caused nerve damage? I do. It makes perfect sense. Nerve endings. I've been suspecting that for years.

I'll get these tiny, bright red spots (usually on my trunk or legs) that itch insanely. Sometimes, they'll keep me awake. If I show them to someone, they'll squint, and say, "oh yeah...doesn't look bad," - but they drive me nuts. I never scratch them (I know better!) and after a day or 2, they turn darker and then fade away. The dermatologist says, "rash of unknown origin." Thanks!

Material, yes, has to be super soft. Cotton or its cousin. Nothing pokey. And it has to keep me warm!

I have just started getting the sun burn feeling on my arms. I live in the norht east so when this happens I can just go outside right now and it will cool them off.

I have something else new happening I'm wondering if anyone has had before. When I get a shower and the water goes down my right shoulder blade it feels like bugs crawling down that side of my back.
