Burning sensations on skin pressure points, i.e. elbows, forearms, hands buttocks, feet.

Posted by jimbourg8 @jimbourg8, Oct 25, 2011

Does anybody have similar symptoms like these. It is not exactly like a peripheral neuropathy but seems similar….It just started happening in June 2011. Almost constant feeling of burning pain when ever I am sitting or anything touching those hyper sensitive areas of my body. As soon as I get up and move, there is relief. As soon as I sit down or exert the slightest pressure on those areas, there is that burning , nagging , type of pain. I had received a diagnosis of Hypothyroidism during that time and have been taking the low thyroid medication for 3 months now…but no relief on this problem………..anybody out there with similar or same symptoms…..I’d be glad to find out and if they for a resolution. So far my Healthcare providers dont know yet……maybe I need to see a neurologist ?

Hey. This is old post but if u ever found out what was wrong pls reply. I was experiencing this on my right side all over the backside of body and I finally have an answer but it was not disease. Was dx w lupus but I really don’t think that what I have but I stay on low dose of plaquenil bec dr told me if I come off it, as I did once that it can stop working if u go on/off them. If interested in what I figured out pls reply

Hi, @pecan111 – What did you figure out was causing the burning sensations you were experiencing? You mentioned you don't think that you have lupus as diagnosed. What is making you think it's something other than lupus?

I've got burning sensation in upper back and back of the thighs.The worst thing for me is that I cannot sit on the office chair . My neuro said that its not neurological but suggested amitriptyline, has anybody tried it?

I would recommend that you be examined by a good Physical Therapist/Sacro-Illiac specialist who likely can identify what is nerve- related and what is muscle-related, and who can alleviate your pain. You will need a referral from a doctor, however.

Sometimes we can't relay everything on the doctors, because medical technology is the least advanced technology than all other modern technologies, currently man able to travel to the moon/space and able to talk to face to face with each other between New York and London even between space station, but still did not discover the human body and its micro functioning process. we all understand when we eat very spicy food, we end up suffering later in the bathroom, but we do not have any other significant feelings about how the spicy food interact with entire body, such as how the spicy food impact in the internal organs, joint, skin etc. that means the spicy food do not have interaction other parts of human body than anus does. Anyway this is my story, 5 years ago one of my friends told me an onion-red wine recipe, and drink a shot daily, I’ve drink a while and feel the significant positive improve my energy level, sex drive etc. then I thought the ingredients of the recipe are onion and red wine, why I have to limit myself with a shot daily and decided serve myself with regular wine glass daily, guess what, I’m starting to have burning sensation on skin on my left elbow and getting worse day by day, of course I’m not that smart enough to relate the increased daily dose of my red wine recipe, burning sensation getting worse and worse, pain to touch and looks like red as red a monkeys butt, seen by all kind of specialist like neurologist, fiber-logiest , dermatologist and related test and examination was thyroid, iron level, and may other special exams that I’ve forgot the name, but spend a lot time and money with zero improvement. One day I happened to out of town for a week, of course I didn’t get a chance keep up my red wine recipe, and my elbow burning sensation problem getting better and better and completely gone by the time when I get back home, then I have to wait another week to have my red wine recipe ready, a week later my recipe ready and starting with regular wine glass and my elbow burning sensation problem started again, stop drink one day problem stopped right away, and felt like the red wine recipe like a on off switch for my elbow burning sensation problem, then I stopped the recipe for good, elbow burning sensation problem gone for good for last five years. Recently I got a case of very good Cabernet Sauvignon, and started to drink glass daily, by my surprise my elbow burning sensation problem came back less than a week after I drink a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon daily, this time came back to my right elbow, I did not expect this because this is not a onion red wine recipe just a red wine, again I stopped daily red wine, the burning problem gone as well . Other than that if I drink a beer, my joint starting to pain right away, just like on off switch. I only drink bourbon on the rocks and never have any problem; conclusion is do not being an experimental rat for no clue doctors with spending your own money and time. The point I’m trying to make is every human body is different, the food we eat/drink lifestyles and living/working conditions have a different reaction for every individual in different period of time, so we have to learn the nature of our own body, and keep track of any changes of eating/drinking, lifestyles and living/ working situation and how they impacted our health situation and to be able to adjust and regulate them for optimal health, good luck and live well.

I am very happy to report that I have got significantly better with acupuncture. I have to say that my acupuncturist is very experienced and trained in China and that I had tried other acupuncturists in the past who had not helped at all. I have been seeing her fro 3 months and have gone from having to sit on ice packs all day every day to using them in the late afternoon/evening only. I am hoping that in time this issue will disappear completely.
