Neuralgia (?) on my arm

Posted by Jenn (My Page) on

This morning my husband lightly touched me on my upper right arm, very lightly, just brushing it. It hurt as if I have a very bad bruise or sore there, but I don't. I ignored it and got in the shower. As soon as the water touched my right forearm, I felt the same pain in the forearm. Since then, I have had very painful burning-like pains in the forearm in the same area. It is also very sensitive to light touch, but there is nothing visible.

Anyone know what this might be?? I didn't bump or injure my arm in any way.

It could be anything from a nerve acting wierd to shingles to peripheral neuralgia ... lots of stuff starts out with a hypersensitive skin area. And lots of those things are temporary and harmless.

Gove is a week or two to go away. If it spreads, or gets worse, call a doctor.

RE: Neuralgia (?) on my arm

Thank you. It is definiltely worse tonight, in the same areas but more sensitive. Still no visible signs. Sometimes the pain is very intense but lasts only momentarily. Today I had a vague sense of not feeling good, maybe it was just the pain in my arm affecting me that way.

I sure hope it is just temporary!


RE: Neuralgia (?) on my arm

Well, it is MUCH better today and seems to be going away as the day progresses. This morning when I awoke it was better than last night, but worse than yesterday morning. Now, it is almost gone. WHEW! I was a little concerned and it was quite painful. Weird!

It's gone! :-)
