Sometimes I get so sensitive that anything that touches my skin hurts? Does anyone else have this symptom? I have had some problems with this since I was little, i would say my skin hurt or my hair hurt (my scalp is esp sensitive). They used to blame it on allergies but it is worse since my IC got worse does this happen to anyone else?:confused:

nope doesn't happen to me.
I have vestibulitis/vulvodynia, and sometimes underwear hurts to the touch and I just cannot wait to shed them. I don't notice sensitivity in other areas of my body, though.

Yes!- My hair and the skin on my face would hurt and burn. It used to drive me crazy for years. It turned out to be a aura before a migraine in my case - always coming before a headache. I finally asked the neurologist that helps me with my migraines. He put me on Topomax in addition to Verapamil daily to prevent migraines - no more skin or hair hurting. The pain when you touched me like on my back - I would almost scream turned out to be muscle pain from Myofascial Pain . Hope this helps.

hi AD8123, looks like other members gave you some great advice. I too would definitely talk to you doctor about this. I too sometimes have pain in my pelvic region. During flares when my husband wants to get frisky I say guess again buddy boy. lol. My husband also has skin sensitivity. I barely caress him, etc and he says, "it's too much, or it's too sensitive". I don't have an exact answer for you but know your not alone. Good luck. :)
