Does anyone else have the sensation that there skin is severely sunburn?? In my weakest areas- that used to be pretty numb now feels SOO tender! If anything/anyone brushes up against it, just feels like an awful sunburn.. .. not sure if this is a good or bad thing- maybe the nerves are waking up? Just curious! Hope yall are all doing well!

Hypersensitivity and a burning sensation in the feet is a common symptom of inflammatory peripheral neuropathies. My feet feel like they are burning all the time, but more severely when I walk on them for awhile. The hypersensitivity to touch seems to have lessened a lot, but is still there to some extent. This is mainly in the front part of the foot.

Experienced extreme sensitivity in lower leg after arthroscopic surgery (not related to my current CIDP problem). It was impossible to sleep even with a light sheet cover. Neurologist advised a program of “desensitization” to get the brain to react less strongly; this involved lightly rubbing the affected area with various materials (denim, linen, towel, rubber, plastic…) for a few minutes each several times a day. Sounds kinky – but after a few weeks the extreme sensitivity faded to a tolerable level and sleeping under normal covers was possible again – great relief, and no drugs involved.

I have this terrible feeling in my left hand and sometimes in the fingers of my right hand.
As Ann79 I used a trick and started to stroke a cat.
It really helped a little bit, the brains started to understand that stroking a cat doesn’t hurt, but is a pleasant feeling.
This trick / treatment is common for people who’ve had an amputation and suffer from ‘phantom pains’.
Just try it, it might help and won’t harm you.
