Q:  A Reader Comments on Hair Like Sensations

Just a comment on the hair like sensations one individual feels and your response.  I experience this on one side of my face at times.  It is frustrating more than anything to not be able to swipe the little "spider webs" away.  I do have very "hyperesthetic" periods where I can't stand noise, people, visual disturbance, light, etc., and have been told this is a manifestation of manic states.  I also have allergies requiring medications, but take Depakote, instead.  Sometimes my skin is so sensitive that it actually hurts to touch anything.  My eyes are always irritated.  I have an eating disorder, can be compulsive, etc.  This would make an interesting study.  I've always viewed it as if my brain is over stimulating my nerve endings for some reason.  From now on I'll be more attuned to that manic - hypersensitive connection.  Thank you!


Dear Ms. L-
Thank you for passing along your experience.  That is a good example I will be able to use with my patients, very helpful, appreciated.  I'm sure others might find it likewise and will ask The Bipolar World folks to post this so that others may benefit.
