i posted this in the "ask the health librarian" and she didn't know where to send me. iseem to have everyone stupmped. She suggestreed this board might possib;y help:
So I have had this issue for a long time- at least 1.5 years, possibly even longer. My legs are extremely sensitive to touch. Any amount of pressure on them feels like I am pressing bruises. It is the whole leg, top to bottom (both legs). I realzed how bad it was when i had a gift certificate for a massage and the woman began massaging my legs, and it was absolutely excruciating. If i sit with one leg,say, resting on the coffee table, I cant cross the other one over it, because it hurts, and sometimes when i stretch out, my husband tries to sit with his legs resting on mine, but it is too painful. also, the pain takes a few seconds to really kick in. if i ran my hand down my leg, with just a bit of pressure, about 3-5 seconds after, it would hurt tremendously.
I don't know if this makes any sense, but it's difficult to explain. Anybody hear of this or have anything like it? I have been searching online and nothing sound slike this problem I have. it's frustrating. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
i should also point out that my legs don't just hurt without being touched, it takes that very small amount of pressure. A nerve issue perhaps. i appreciate any help at all
