I have oesteoarthritis in my neck and back. After a long drive, the back of my neck was very painful and sore. I noticed that the skin felt burned in the back but was not red. The next day , although my neck was some better, I am still noticing that my skin is tender and sore to the touch. Does anyone know why this would be?
I have experienced the same type of back irritation, which feels just like it is the skin on my back feeling sore when touched or when I move. I have been diagnosed to have rheu. arthritis, however, it is being controlled through medication. Since I have just started feeling this sensation, I thought that I would find if the MedHelp community has an answer. I am interested in any thoughts concerning this phenomonem.
