I have episodes where I dont feel pain from cuts, burns (including severe burns), bumping into things. Sometimes there is no pain at all or sometimes its just a diminished sense of pain. I still retain normal sensation so its not that its numb. I can pull a feather against the area and feel the feather but no pain/very little pain. It only affects my arms particularly my right arm and can feel other sensations of pain it seems limited to bumps, cuts, and burns. I'm diagnosed with chonic headached/episodal migraines and have been sent to a Rheumy for possible Fibro. He is considering several possiblities that cover a lot of symptoms I have but nothing he is considering have I seen this as a symptom of. Any info anyone might have would be appreciated. Thanks
