Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Hi,

    I sometimes get this, for example on my hip, but today I have it on my right arm.

    It starts a few inches below my elbow and reaches a few inches above. The entire area is sensitive to touch, even the slightest brushing of touches.

    If I stay totally still I can't feel any pain at all, but clothes brushing against it, even shower water causes the pain, in fact HARD pressing doesn't cause the pain either.

    I was lifting some objects yesterday, could it be a trapped nerve? It feels like a burning ache or intense fiery itch at the point of pressure and radiates out into the surrounding tissue/muscle.

    It reminds me of the uncomfortable all over sensitivity you get from a bad virus fevery episode, such as tonsilitis or bad flu, except localised.

    That sounds exactly like Allodynia.

    Hmmm, yes it does.

    Thanks! Off to read about that now. Interesting the treatments all seem to be aimed at reducing the pain and not treating whatever cause.
