hi

I am 38yrs old and slightly overweight. Do not have regular periods. Off late, my body has become extremely sensitive...the slightest touch (even of a cloth) or even a sound causes a feeling like electric shock on me. My skin feels hot and uncomfortable for few minutes.

  • hi I am 38yrs old and slightly overweight. Do not have regular periods. Off late, my body has become extremely sensitive...the slightest touch (even of a cloth) or even a sound causes a feeling like electric shock on me. My skin feels hot and uncomfortable for few minutes. The only illness i can think of which causes oversensitivitity to things like that is CFS (i can get sensory overload at times with CFS and not be able to handle being touched) but from what you've said there.. it dont sound as if you have CFS. With irregular periods (esp if they are often over 42 days) and being overweight.. if you also have things like mood swings (PMT) and/or excess hair growth. You probably should have a blood test to check your hormone levels and check for polycystic ovulation syndrome.
