Yea its going to sound strange i know. But does anyone else have a problem with their bones being touched?
I cant handle my spine, collar bones, shin bones, wrists etc being touched . i also cant look at someones back etc. Is this just another necrosis or do other people have the same problem?

Is it because you have a sensation of pain if your bones are touched?

I've never heard of that before. It's strange because you should be desensitised to your own touch. Must make sleeping very difficult.

Its fine if im on a soft surface. But if i bump into something that hits my spine i freak out. Also if i have an itch around my collar bones or om my shins i cant scratch it. I wish so bad i was normal 😞that is the least of my worries i suppose.

I don't think it's actually your bones. The sensation maybe feels like its your bones but it must be your nervous system at fault. Have you asked a doctor about it?

Seems to fit the description of 'allodynia'

"Alloydynia is normal touch that turns into a pain through the spinal chord."

"There are two main theories of what causes allodynia: One idea holds that mechanically sensitive nerve endings pick up gentle touch signals as usual, but those signals are somehow perceived as painful in the brain. An alternative notion is that the painful signals actually originate in pain-sensing cells."
