Hello, for the past 4 months my chest area has had heightened sensitivity and back aches. My skin feels like it has a sunburn but with no visible marks or problems. When I wear a shirt the tingling and slight burning sensation is activated and is extremely distracting. My upper back and abdominen aches most of the time. Painkillers and muscle relaxers do not work and my doctor believe it is anxiety related, even though it is 24/7 and Im not that anxious. All my medical test including neurological check out. Any help would be appreciated.
The symptoms reported by you are suggestive of increased anxiety because most of the pain killers are not helping and other tests are also normal.There are times when you would be anxious but would not be feeling it and that is causing these symptoms.
Continue taking the prescribed medication for few months.It will help you.Other than that do some form of Yoga/Meditation for relaxation.
Avoid stress,being alone.
Avoid smoking and alcohol.
