Hi doctor,

A portion of my skin in my right leg feels sensitive, or I feel a little pain when it is lightly touched by the clothes or hand. I have started to feel the pain, I think 3 to 5 days now, and it does not go away. I searched online to find what it is, and I think it is similar to allodynia. By the way, I am not sure if my previous condition was related to my current condition, I always have an issue with my right shoulder and right arm, and the doctor said it is a muscle spasm. At first, my right shoulder hurts, then the pain extends up to my right arm. I have been experiencing this concern for about 2 to 3 years now. The pain goes on and off.

Also, I had an eardrum reconstruction surgery last year in my right ear. I am not sure if it is related.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The hypersensitivity is caused by the effect on the nerve can due to any reason. It may be from the spinal cord to the region in the leg. A problem anywhere can cause this kind of an issue. You need to get yourself evaluated clinically by a neurologist. As the MRI is quite old, you cannot rely on that. Further evaluation with MRI only if required and nerve conduction study might be required.

As a symptomatic treatment, Pregabalin or Gabapentin can be used but only after clinical evaluation and if considered by the treating doctor.

Thank you.
