Hi Ropiy,

Thank you for asking

Normally, a person will feel pain only when the body experiences excessive friction or impact. As for the condition as you are experiencing, namely the increased sensitivity of the body to pain, it may be considered hyperalgesia.

Hyperalgesia itself is not clear the mechanism of its occurrence. However, many experts suspect this is related to disruption in the delivery of nerve signals in the body and also disruption of chemical substances in the body that play a role in reducing pain. There are several possibilities that can trigger this, including:

History of injury Infections, eg herpes zoster, leprosy, Lyme disease, HIV, diphtheria Diabetes Consumption of opioids Alcoholism Toxic exposure, eg heavy metals or other chemicals Autoimmune disorders, eg Gullain-Barre syndrome, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis Drug side effects, eg chemotherapy Injury or nerve suppression, for example due to accidents or repetitive movements performed with poor posture Tumors in nerve fibers or other organs that suppress nerves Deficiency of vitamins B, vitamin E, and niacin Spinal cord disorders, for example due to cancer, amyloidosis Psychological disorders, etc. It is better if you have your condition checked directly to a neurologist so that you can do a thorough examination, not only with neurological examinations, but also laboratory tests, CT scans, electromyography, skin biopsy, nerve biopsy, and so on. That way, the best treatment can be done according to the conditions.

In the meantime, first do the following:

Minimize the actions that can trigger excessive pain Wear loose, comfortable, soft clothing Enrich the intake of vitamins that are good for nerves, for example by eating lots of meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, or fortified cereals. other factors that can cause nerve damage, for example repetitive movements, poor posture, exposure to toxic substances, smoking, or also consuming alcohol. Hope this helps.
