I have alot of skin sensitivity and I don't think it is all from neuropathy. I have had neuropathy for a little over a year now. I was told that neuropathy only really effects your hands, feet and (lower)legs. My hands and feet get stabbing pains and start burning, my legs get the stabbing pains and are so sensitive that it hurts when my pants rub up against them and shaving - OUCH!! Besides all of that, I have skin sensitivity in my lower back (I don't let anyone rub my back), my outer thighs, the side of my shoulder (right above my armpit, on the crease) & on my stomach it even got too sensitive to touch, but that faded. I had one Dr. tell me that it was fibromyalga (sp?)…which I looked up and that contains every kind of symptom out there. A couple of months ago the pain was so bad that I went to the ER. The Dr. didn't think it was fibromyalga, he didn't really believe in it, he thought it was more of a psychological thing. He told me that it wasn't neuropathy and he didn't think it was in my head, there is something wrong but he didn't know & I had to see a neurologist.
Well, considering that I don't have health insurance and to see a neurologist is $196, I haven't been able to go yet.
So I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar or have any idea what this can be?
