First off: im male, 25 years old, whos lived in several different states in the US over the course of that time.
For my entire life, the whole of my skin has been absurdly sensitive; I cannot stand being touched becaue of the level of pain it brings about, and will pull away wholly through reflex at even the softest contact. My entire body is this way, with more sensitive areas being more painful. In many cases even my own touch is painful, while it is painful without exception when someone else touches me. This is without any clear physical reason: no rash, sunburn, anything.
There has never been a time when this wasnt the case; i recall at least from 10 years old making comments to my parents, along the lines of "we're luckly all pain doesnt make us cry, or we'd never stop" only to be rebuffed with obvious confusion on their part, in retrospect. This isnt something that comes and goes, and isnt new, its always there.
Not until my first sexual encounter did i realise this was not how most people felt. As the sensitivity in those areas is extraordinarily high, it has basically left me with no sex life, and no intimate physical relationships. Ive tried searching, all over, for anything like this...but all I ever see are people for whom the condition is a new thing, not one mention of a permanent state that i could find.
Any help in finding an answer, a name, ANYTHING to give me even a basic starting off point, any of this would be astoundingly helpful, and will get my eternal gratitude, for what its worth. Thank you all for reading.
