Skin Overly Sensitive To Touch

I was wondering if sensitive skin is common for POTS patients.

My skin is always extra sensitive now. But when I'm having a really bad day my skin is so sensitive that it is hard to function! It makes hugs uncomfortable. I get really jumpy from just a hand put on my shoulder. It is even irritating to touch my arm with my own hand! And if I try to sleep and the sheets move just a tiny bit on my legs it wakes me up!

Does anyone else have this happen???

I go through periods of very over sensitive skin... when this happens, even the sheets bother me. Nina

don't know if this is the same, but I have something called dermatographism-- any pressure on my skin turns it red and welty and sometimes itchy. it's apparently common in allergic people-- and to me it feels like my autonomic symptoms and allergies are very connected...

I get this too in my hands and forearms. Mine has to do with my peripheral neuropathy though, and less to do with alleriges. Unfortunately I don't know any way to ease it, I just try to put up with it when it happens, and it usually passes within a few hours to a few days.

Hope you feel better!

i get this...i dont know what causes it .. only that ive had it forever.. and it flares.. and i usually run a fever.. and am in pain..

i too cant not stand the clothing or sheets or blankets rubbing on my skin.. a sheet is too much pressure..even my hair roots will hurt..

alot of sleep and it eventually goes away.. hope that you feel better!
