I always get this during or around the time of an illness. For me, it usually accompanies the body aches/soreness that comes with the flu. It is caused by your body's immune response to the sickness -- releasing a lot of white blood cells to attack the virus which can make you sore and mess up normal nerve response. I read somewhere that this body/skin soreness can be associated with immune system disorders too, like lupus or MS. Most commonly though it is just associated with a temporary illness.
I too have had this for years on and off, I feel like I have flu as every muscle hurts and my skin feels like it might fall off if I touch it, it hurts so much. I have been told that as I have herpes(similar virus to chicken pox) it could be this coming up to the nerve endings but without blistering, it only happpens when I'm run down so the diagnosis fits. The only way to relieve this is a warm bath and plenty of paracetamol and rest and it should go after a few days.
Yeah I'm only 12 and I have this too. It goes on for 3 days to like two weeks. It hurts to touch my skin or when other people touch it. I get it basically everywhere. No rashes or anything. I believe it is low vitamin D but I'm not a professional at all. Hope you feel better.
Have the same thing on my arm, it feels like a burn. It feels the worst when I get chills or goosebumps so strange!
I have been having severe pain on my hip and my back. If you touch either area it sends me through the roof. The pain is like if you have the worst case of sunburn , plus you have to wear burlap and someone is putting vinegar on top of everything, I have never had so much pain to the touch in my life. I went to the doctor and it is shingles. I never had any sores so I was not sure what I was having. SHe told me you can get shingles on your knee, face, back, across the front of your belly also up your neck.
My skins hurts when my body has an overload of toxins. This happens when I have been exposed to poisons (whether household, yard, or agriculture), paints, cleaning and other chemicals. I have had this for over 50 years. I have had it so bad I do not want to move a muscle. Sometimes it feels like the muscle and skin pain you get with flu. I have learned to use detox supplements and body wraps and body soaks which help to get my body back to normal and relieve the symptoms.
This can be a neurological problem. Please pay a visit to a neurophyscian.
He may ask you for a CT scan or MRI scan. After this you problem can be diagnosed and treated. This can be due to oversensitivity of pain receptors at your arms.
I have had this occur off and on for many years and it is really annoying but usually will go away on it's own. It normally is on my arm but today it is on the back off my thigh and buttocks, it hurts to sit, or even touch the skin but there are no signs on my skin that would explain the pain. I wish I knew what this was and how I could prevent it from happening it is very uncomfortable. If someone knows what it is please let me know.
My husband and I both get this.. I don''t know if you found out what it is yet. We don't know either but we both get it on our thighs and then on our arms.. We have no idea what it could be.. If you did find out I would love to hear.. Hopefully you don't have this anymore..
I have it right now. I wore a warmer clothe so it got better. But I still feel funny when touch my skin specially on my back. It's not a muscle pain so I think it's because of some sort of food (some kind of allergy) or not covering a part of skin during the night when your asleep. If you are mature drink a glass of red wine it helps a lot! Always stick to natural stuff instead of medicine or painkillers. I hope it helps.
