lwas wondering if anyone gets random patches of goosebumps, like I get it on my right arm and my back and it feels like lots of tiny wee needles poking in my skin in a small area. like a very concentrated patch of goosebumps?
I also when falling asleep get the uncontrollable feeling that I NEED to move. like I can't fight it??
I don't get the goosebumps, but I get the other on a regular basis. It is maddening. I find that sometimes if it gets too bad, I have to get out of bed and do stretching exercises all over my body: legs, feet, tush, back, arms, shoulders, neck, hands. There are probably You-Tube videos that can show you how to do them if you already don't know. Taking some magnesium can help muscles relax. Better yet, taking a bath with epsom salts works great if you have a bathtub. Afterwards, systematic relaxation, where you close your eyes breathe evenly and starting with your feet, clench and release the muscles. You move up through your body, next to your lower legs, then your thighs, then your pelvis, your abdomen, your stomach, your upper chest, then your fists, your lower arms, your upper arms, your shoulders, your upper back, your jaw, your mouth, your brow, and finally, your scalp. clenching and releasing each muscle group. By the end of this exercise you should be totally relaxed. Good luck, I hope this helps.
Yes,I know what you mean,I give in & get up, I go on my' Vibro disc 'whilst watching TV,for 30 mins or so,then try again.that usually works,or else my legs start jumping in bed,and I toss & turn for hrs, not kind to hubby.
I get the goosebumps in patches on my arms too. Feels to me like a sunburn without the sun and redness. The area is hypersensitive and usually it lasts a day to a week. It is a type of referral pain.
The NEED to move sounds like restless leg syndrome. I'm not a doctor so don't take my word for it. Usually when I feel like that it's because I'm way overtired. I know we are always tired but this happens when I'm having a hard time calming my mind so I can at least try to sleep.
@ Goosebumps...I surely do also! N I get the burning spots also,And I get these sensations all day off n on But especially at night but The Traumadol stopped it for me! I take 2 of those 50 mg...N 2 NEUROTIN or Gabapentin which either use,they both r the same meds...Gabapentin is jus a off brand n affordable if u have Insurance. Plus,I take a Melotonin ! However, I do start 2 hours prior going to sleep,Starting w Gabapentin first! Then...All my meds then my Melotonin n the Traumadols ! N now I sleep except my CPAP machine gives me problems! I HOPE TILL HELPS...Soft n tender hugs to all!
