I'm eighteen and have always had sensitive upper arms but never to the point where they feel like they're burning. My arms are more sensitive to pain than anything else and only when touched (although once I was very hot on a train ride home and when a breeze rolled through the carriage the cold air hurt to the point where I cried).
I've never been very overweight and the only dietry conditions I have are the coeliac disease and lactose intolerance (both diets I stick to very carefully). I don't expose that part of my body to the sun very often and I also know that my mother has a very similar issue with her upper thighs (if that helps). Is this how it started for those who have got unsually sensitive skin?
Also, any tips on where I can tell doctors to stick needles? I've recently had a mole removed on my upper arm and the injection to numb the area was so painful they had to bring in two other nurses to hold me down.
Thank you for any shared stories and/or advice :)
