Burning skin pain!
SherryBerry72 posted:
Long story face burns daily. No marks, nothing! I have been to doctors off and on through the years just to be told it's anxiety/depression. I am not wanting to get on a med, though I am horribly anxious due to the condition.

It is the worse feelign I have ever experienced - way way way worse than natural childbirth.

Has anyone ever dealt w/ this or have any ideas?

I've seen neuros, rheumys, internal and an endo. I've had all the tests run. No answers! It's very painful.
Patricia Farrell, PhD responded:
It's curious that no one thought to send you for an evaluation with a psychologist if they thought this was an anxiety condition. This might have been quite helpful and could have cleared up the doubt as to where it might be coming from.

I don't know what might be causing your burning, but, as you have said, you have seen a variety of specialists and no one seems to know what it is. Is there any time that it seems to go away or is it constant? I think there are a number of questions that need to be answered and I would expect that some psychological testing by a licensed psychologists might help with this. If it is an anxiety disorder, then there are techniques that can be used to help you with this.

Please consider this option.
SherryBerry72 replied to Patricia Farrell, PhD's response:
It comes and goes. It is much better in the evenings when I'm able to relax. Even when I don't feel anxious, though, it can come on. The heat intensifies it. The sun can feel excruciating.

I will try to get in to see a psychiatrist. I've seen a therapist, but didn't stick with it due to the cost.

Thanks for your response Dr. Farrell.
