I don't know if I can explain this accurately, but here goes...
For the past month, I've had very sensitive skin. I can rub my hand over or scratch anywhere on my body (back, stomach, arms, legs, face, head, ears, etc.), and I get these tingly sensations which run over my back and head and which last for 15 to 30 seconds. Or someone can just lay their hand on my should or back, and I get the same tingly electrical sensations over my back and head. It's weird! I've never had this before. It doesn't happen when I lower my head, so I don't think it's Lhermitte's.
Also, my hands have been giving me a lot of problems lately with numbness, pain, and tingling. But the weirdest thing is that the skin on my palms whenever I touch something or rub my palms has a strange shocky feeling, like a bad sunburn.
Has anyone heard of this? Any ideas as to what it might be? Would it be MS related?
