Take your pick of the above, as they all seem to have the same symptoms to be honest when I looked them up. Have been diagnosed with them all over the last 30 years.
Now to the point of the thread, I have iver the last 6 months or so had the feeling that the skin on my back is burning. As if I had intense sun burn. It dosn't look read, nor feel hot to the touch. Any idea's ?
I havn' t seen Rheumatologist for 2 years what with the pandemic, but I have finally after a telephone appointment with the GP, managed to book a f2f at the end of the month.
The Rheumatology Dept by the way had taken me off their books, my Dr informed me back in May ( I was not informed) as according to them I was stable and they didn't need to see me. Last contact with them I was due to have x rays on my hip!
Sorry I'm rambling, really wanted to know if anybody has experienced the burning feeling.

Burning pain sounds like nerve pain.
I am on Gabapentin and Amitriptyline for nerve pain. It dampens it down but I still get pain and often strong stabs of pain. There is a limit to what they can do to help.
I am waiting as long as I can before I have to ask for my meds to go up, as nerve pain is life long and I don't want to run out of suitable pain relief in a couple of years iyswim.
