Hi, I don't know if it is the same thing I had or not, but right after being diagnosed I started having burning in my right arm and right leg and on my back. It turned out to be a Vitamin B deficiency. My Vitamin B levels in my blood were normal, but your blood keeps your blood levels normal, so don't let the doctor say that is not it. I have been on vitamin b-12 shots for 4 months now and feel completely back to normal. (Ironically, vitamin b-12 deficiency symptoms tend to be on one side - mine was the right side too.) Hope that helps!

I don't take any vitamins, they always upset my stomach..better see if I can find something. someone told me about b12 that you melt under the tongue

I get a burning sensation in my skin....feels like a really bad sunburn but there's no redness or rash. Does the rash go around your rib kind of like a belt? You know, in a thin strip around your waist/rib area?

Okay, sorry then, I don't know...I was thinking Shingles, which is a painful rather than itchy rash that follows a nerve. You may want to have a dermatologist look at it.

Wow, I'd been experiencing the same symptoms, except it was my shoulder, not my elbow. I've been taking B 12 & B complex (both under tongue) for two months, and have not noticed any change (I must admit I forget to take at alot of times). I get accupunture treatments and she did some cupping on that area the last two weeks, and I've felt much less pain in those areas.

I've wondered, does anyone else do accupunture?

did anyone ever tell you what causes it? does yours get worse sometimes after you eat? [it may be a coincidence] is your pain just in the shoulder?

a few years ago I did accupuncture For about 6 months for fibro pain, it helped for a few months then nothing..I hear that a lot

Well we knew I had a vit B definciency, however since I began taking them I had not noticed a difference (I started them at the same time I went gluten free approx 2mo. ago). I believe I had not noticed any change due to the malabsorbtion. We actually thought it had something to do with my line of work, I lift my right arm alot (it's in my right top shoulderblade area). It mostly came on at night or when I had not eaten properly. I had stopped working a month ago, still no relief, in fact it was getting worse and that's when she started the cupping treatments, with great success. I have also had it in my right groin area but thought it was caused by pushing a box with my leg last month (I never mentioned it to her), so when you mentioned pain in thoses areas, and someone else mentioned how the B deficency targets one side, it blew my mind, and reminded me to take my B's, in fact I doubled up tonight.

I do find that accupuncture really works for me, I've done it off and on for the past 6 years. However, I went to 3 different accupuncturists before finding one who "understood" what I am going through now.

My celiac was triggered by west nile virus/encephalitis 2 years ago and up until 2 1/2 months ago I thought that was the cause of all my symptoms. You can just imagine the trouble I've had finding someone who would listen.

Peace & Goodnight,

Elsa

I've gotten exactly that too! Right after I had some ham with bourbon in it (when I first went gluten-free, I thought that bourbon was just corn derived, later I found out it ALWAYS has rye and barley in it as well!) that was the first symptom I got. It lasted only a couple of days, but I also had a million other symptoms from this 'glutening.' But that was the first time I ever got that weird burning sensation. It was only in my left arm, and like you said, it was like a bad sunburn in my skin, except there was no rash or redness or anything. Very weird!
