I have had those burning sensations too.  They started with my first big health scare and continued until I started my meds (which was lexapro).  The sensation went away for a long time, until I quit my meds and went back into panic mode about everything.  I think after being on your meds for a while, you will feel much better and won't have the sensations that you experience now.  Remember to pray about and try not to worry.

When my anxiety was at its worst, I would wake up in the middle of the night, my body felt like it was on fire.  It was start in my head and spread all the way down to my feet.  It was the scariest feeling and I had NO CLUE what the heck was going on. My skin would get all blotchy looking, too - especially around my neck.  I still get a cold tingling on my scalp at times or a burning on my wrists (wrists/forearms turn red).  I'm not sure what to think about it, I keep freaking out that I'm getting arthritis, but from reading about it, it sounds like anxiety can cause this, too.

I had the wired feeling, too - I would literally pace back and forth in the house, couldn't sit still and my brain felt like chatter.  Or, other times, it was like my head went blank and I would get this dead feeling in my forehead - not sure how to explain it, but it was sooo scary.  It has to be anxiety because I've had every test, every scan and everything is pretty much clear.  I do have a neck injury (whiplash) so I'm assuming my nervous system was affected and because I already had anxiety issues, it just made them spike.

My best advice...stop googling - it only makes thing worse.

I have a friend who has a lot of burning symptoms.  Her doctor prescribed her an antidepressant (can't remember the name).  Her burning symptoms resolved.  One night she forgot to take her medication, and she was burning from head to toe!  I think burning sensations that are all over the body, such as my friends, indicates anxiety or something like an allergy or a vitamin/mineral deficiency.

 I get burning/itching all the time as well. It comes and goes though. I first noticed it back in august when I had my big MS scare. I read about MS patients experiencing burning sensations.... I was put on prozac and a lot of the "symptoms" I had been feeling vanished. Then I went back to school and my anxiety picked up again, and I began to get the burning again. It feels almost like my skin is hyper sensitive.


Currently I am afraid of Hodgkin's though.... but it seems to go away when I am not thinking about it.

i get burning sensations as well. last summer while in texas i suddenly had a case of burning palms that felt like they were on fire, nonstop tingling and horrible heat. i had to press them against the cool glass of the window to cool them off, and frequently running them under cold water. mind you, i was very anxious during that trip to texas and it was also a huge climate change, so i'm sure that's what caused it, but i was obsessed with MS at the time and that symptom definitely didn't help. i still get hot hands and burning sensations/heat flashes which are made worse when i'm stressed. i've heard many people say this is a sign of an overworked anxious brain. best advice is to not google, despite how bad the urge is; all it'll tell you are horror stories that will only make your anxiety worse and prolong your symptoms.
