My main symptoms since 2002, that come and go are:
SKIN PAIN (hypersensitive)
Burning on my skin
Feel bruised all over
Achy all over
Hands can ache....legs as well
Anxiety came first, I know that for sure. Had my first emotional break down after 9/11. Plus I was in a bad marriage (verbally abusive). Never supported in any form or fashion from my husband. I worked full time, took care of our son, cooked, cleaned, took care of the pool, yard, etc....and it was NEVER enough!
I will get my symptoms and they will last a few months and go away. Something stressful ALWAYS triggers them. They can go away for an entire year or two and come back. This is the worse they've been in a while.
I've noticed the weather "seems" to be effecting it. I'm in Texas and we've had a lot of storms lately. I went to bed feeling decent and woke up to a bad storm. My entire body was in excruciating pain!!! Like my skin is just sore all over!!
I've seen neuros, rheumies, GPs, endos, internal med drs, etc.! NO ANSWERS! Have had MRIs, blood work, EMGs, etc. Nothing! Last MRI (brain and c-spine) was in 2014. Was clear. Actually, the radiologist noticed some spots consistent w/ small vessel eschimic changes, but neuro said he didn't see ANYTHING on the MRI. That was odd!!! I had an MRI in 2005 as well (brain and c-spine) that was normal. Had a brain MRI in 2004 as well, normal. I also had one in 1996 (after diagnosis of Pars Planitis which is linked to MS).
I have an appt w/ a new neuro on May 4th. If this one says NO MS...I'm going to finally put it behind me after all these years. BUT....not sure what is causing my issues. They are VERY PAINFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right now...my skin all over feels like it's on fire. My face and arms is the worst.
Does anyone have such horrid skin pain???
