Does anyone else get this? I have it all the time and it is so horrible that it is almost giving me panic attacks.

yes. i have had it on my arms on other parts of my body as well. it almost seemed to be sort of a burning pain. hard to describe. it would be very painful just for my clothes to lightly rub over the spot. i dont have them quite as often as i used to. i would say the first time i had one was 9 years ago. i dont let it stress me like i used to because the doctors were never concerned with it and if it was a symptom that was going to lead to some worse diagnoses it would have happened by now. Ive been around this forum since 2008. i used to have a different nick name and from that time til now I have read countless people talk about this same symptom. i have always frequented the chat room more than the forum. I would say its a pretty common complaint for people with high levels of anxiety. especially those with health anxiety and fears of neurological diseases. i hope this gives you some comfort.

Know exactly what you're talking about. It's a very strange feeling! Good to know I'm not the only one. Had it mostly in my upper left leg/glute too.

I don't know exactly what YOU mean, but since January I get something weird - like I could FEEL the jeans on my legs (or just one leg) - normally one doesn't FEEL the clothes on their skin, but I do at times!  (it doesn't hurt, burn, itch...  I just FEEL them)

Thank you everyone for replying. I had an MRI too and nothing showed up. It drives me nuts.

I'm so glad to see this topic.  I get this every few months and it always happens around my period.

I get it in my upper back thigh/glute area.  It gets so irritating and painful that just sitting bothers it or my clothing simply touching it hurts.  It's as if the skin is ULTRA sensitive on the surface.  I've tried putting some Icy Hot on it which seems to help a little but doesn't take it completely away.  It just seems to diminish on its own over time.
