Is this normal or am I very odd??

This happens mainly on my torso but has been known on upper arms and legs. If I knock myself or anybody touches me or if I have an itch and scratch it I am in pain for almost 10 minutes. It is a severe pain. It kind of makes me squirm to try and move away from it but nothing works. It just fades after 5-10 minutes. So does everyone have this? Should I be worried? I've had it for a long time. It's not new. I have developed a painful lump at the bottom of my right ribs which I am going to see the doctor about. Is it worth mentioning the other pain? I feel a bit of an idiot describing it really

This kind of pain is not normal for me. I think I'd mention it to the GP.

I don't get that either, so I would mention it to the GP.

See if you can get a double appointment if you are going to discuss two things.

Thank you. I didn't think it was right. I always used to be very ticklish but even that is painful. I will mention it to the doctor when I go

I have this too. Not every time but a lot. The pain is completely disproportionate to the injury that has been sustained.

I got this on my torso at the sides particularly if I scratched myself. Agony. However, it seems to have gone away I wondered if it was a deficiency of some sort?

Could be a deficiency but don't know what I'd Google. Or if Google would probably give me short life expectancy! Was hoping I wasn't alone. If anyone has a clue what it could be it would be nice to have an idea
