Skin Care and Diseases
what would cause my skin to hurt? there is no redness, there is no itching, no bruising, but certains parts of my skin just have an ache. this has been going on for 10 years on certain parts of the skin on my back and arms but after many tests, no answers were found. it is to the point i almost don`t go to work some days because of this aching skin condition. any ideas? thanks; i appreciate any help you can give me regarding this puzzling problem.
SUBJECT: Skin Discomfort
I have taken the opportunity to have your question reviewed by several internists and neurologist. They were mystified by your complaint as presented in your inquiry. I would urge you to see a neurologist who might be familiar with unusual syndromes and/or metabolic states that might lead to this process. Good luck!
