For years I have occassionally suffered from burning skin sensations usually on my back. No rash, just pain usually lasting two to three days with no other symptoms. Five days ago, I started feeling like I had a high fever (skin burning sensation) all over my head and torso. I have a low grade fever at night and am weak and tired. The pain is pretty bad. Everytime I move and my clothes rub my skin it hurts. Ibuprofen somewhat relieves the pain. I think it is stress related - usually happens after I have been very stressed. Could this be shingles without sores?
