relapse or not?wierd skin feeling

Hello.I’m wondering if this new thing I’m experiencing is a relapse.my skin on my forearm and hand is very sensitive to touch and even my blouse touching it is irritating me really badly sometimes it feels like it’s tickling under my skin but I can’t scratch it as it’s not actually itchy and if I touch it it’s painful….hot feels cold and cold feels like it’s burning me,can’t speak to my ms nurse until next week now but it’s driving me mad has anyone else experienced this and did you take anything for it or did it worsen.this has been like this for over a week.any advice would be welcome…

my first relapse if it is since being pregnant with my son.so I’ve been expecting something coming!!!

@gemmat2014 , here’s a good definition of what a relapse is :-

That particular symptom is called dysaesthesia, or paraesthesia:-

You’re right, it does manifest itself as the itch that you cannot scratch and the burning, which isn’t burnt.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies nice to know someone else is having the same,can you take anything for it ?as I think If it’s going to last for weeks I might go mad with the feeling,it’s making my hand especially hard to use with certain things if they are cold especially.oh the joys!
