Super Sensitive Skin

Nov 12, 2017 7:15 PM

The Spot from under my left thumb joint to my wrist is so sensitive I have to make sure nothing touches it. When my shirt sleeve bumps it, I don't even know how to describe the pain. Is this normal for FM?

Hypersensitive skin is a very common fibro symptom! I have it on my thighs and the tops of my arms. X

Is there anything you can do to treat it? A cream? Anything?

There are several different pain relieving creams available. I have Penetrix and CBD rub, after application to the painful site it’s immediate relief!

Lidocaine cream may also help because it's a topical anesthetic.

Thank you for some ideas. I figured there had to be something to help. Thanks again.

Unfortunately it is normal. Not much can be done about it either except take some ibuprofen and hope it works.
