    Skin itching Burning
    An_248118 posted:
    I have an ongoing severe itching Burning on my upper & lower top of my arms only. Day and night ongoing. sometimes see very small white dots on lower arms. Does not seem to be related to when it will occur. Been to Dr's office no results. Extreme burning & itching. I recentely heard my mother has the symptoms. We do not live close by. It is extremely painful.

    Any chance that you have Fibromyalgia? That kind of pain is very common with FM.The spots would not be related, if so. Do some online research, especially here, at this site and other major research hospital or association sites.There are self tests and symptom lists to help you establish possibillity/ probability. I have had it most of my 60 years, and worked hard with it, untl the chronic fatigue decided to knock me down for good, this time. I wish you the best
