Well: Sleeping well? Previous hx of pain with stress? Ever been treated for anxiety/ depression? It could be the skin but ur gp would have gotten that. It could be anxiety/ muscle spasms with a subsequent feedback loop. Getting caught in a neurologic chain reaction. Consider Cymbalta (duloxetine) 30 mg with Clonazepam 2 mg night, 1 mg in day, 1wk day dose, avoid fetal w/d, mass gen women psych site, apol if incorre.
