Sore/burning Skin

Posted , 5 users are following.

Does anyone else find that stress/anxiety and/or the meds cause certain parts of their skin to feel sore or burning even though there is no redness etc?

A couple of weeks ago before starting the meds the side of my neck felt sore or like it was burning for a few days and i think i read somewhere that anxiety can cause that? Now today my health anxiety has been quite bad and made me look at a mole on the front of my next near my collarbone, i had no soreness or anything there before but since i looked at it and worried the skin in that area now has that sore burning sensation, could i have caused that just by worrying?

Thanks

    It's definitely anxiety related I get it mostly on my face, top of my head and my arms. It's like a hot burning tingling sensation but without the rash. I used to get it all day and all night before I started the meds. I still get it now from time to time but not as bad.

      Ouch mines never that bad hope you are ok now. Mines more like a soreness but the sensation is hard to describe, its now started in one small area on my right forearm and my health anxiety has had me looking at my moles even though i know logically that they are not the cause

    The skin sensation/discomfort/pain/soreness/burning thing is on my forearm partway up my arm between my wrist and elbow. Its hard to describe the feeling and is only in a small area with no visible redness but is irritating and is causing me to worry due to my health anxiety
