Goosebumps: Goosebumps are an autonomic (sympathetic)response. Have other autonomic changes- like heart rate? Do you get goosebumps in arms? I am not quite sure why the changes , but our physiologic responses do change-has there been period changes? would check thyroid, check for autoimmune - ANA CRP/ sed rate DS DNA, cryoglobulin, check for eczema, early rosacea, foods, additive changes . f/u/ w/ derm
