Hi Irene, when I had hypersensitivity in my arms (the burnung and tingling) my GP prescribed Amitriptyline to ease it. It’s an anti-depressant at full dosage but reduces the maddening tingling and burning at as lower dose.
I was also prescribed a pill to help me sleep, the same as I get when taking steroids for a relapse but I don’t have the packaging anymore to be able to tell you what it was called.

That’s what I’ve been given to help deal with it anyway!

Thanks CaptainKristoff, I already take amitiptyline, might have to go back to GP. Thanks though for your input, just good to “talk” to others with experience. so hard for family to understand.
