Upper arms really sensitive - weird!

My upper arms are sensitive to the point of it being ridiculous.

If someone taps me or nudges me or I brush against something I'm in agony - sheer agony. It can take me 15 minutes to recover from a poke to the upper arm.

Why on earth would this be?

Is this something that anyone else has experience of, or could it be a subtle pointer to something?

Please reassure me I'm not a freak! blush

Ooh I hope you get to read this as I know your comment is a year old but I suffer... And I mean suffer with the same thing! It's only on the outside of My upper arms between elbow and shoulder but a SLIGHT poke leaves Me rolling in pain!
Iv tried reading up on it but can only find a link with fybromyalgia and I think you have same pain in more places with that

Did you find out what was the issue? I have exactly the same symptoms with my upper arms! Only thing I can find even searching is fibromyalgia 😕
