I am so distraught about burning sensations from my scalp that travel to my shoulder and sometimes to arms and legs. A few weeks ago I colored my hair and left the solution on too long. The next day I had burning sensation and it travelled down into my shoulder. I panicked. I went to my Dermatologist who wasn’t too concerned and gave me liquid steroid to use, which made my scalp burn even worse. I’m stopped the steroid after 5 days, and it burned each time I used the liquid, and it didn’t help. My anxiety set in worse each day as my would feel the burning. Since I am very anxious person, this set me I a highly sensitive state of anxiety. I have googled all symptoms which make me even more anxious. I went to the health store and bought ashwaganda, and other homeopathic nerve solutions. I got off Viibryd 6 months ago after taking them for 7 years. I was on lexapro before that for 3 years. When the burning rush from my scalp moves through my body it frightens me. It’s like I can feel it progress. I went back to the dermatologist yesterday and she was not helpful and hardly even looked at my scalp, and she said my scalp was fine and that maybe I need to go to a neurologist! She was very short with me. I asked her then why did they give me liquid steroid and she said, they just did that as protocol. So now, I realize that my scalp nerves are probably irritated from the hair dye, but now that these things are happening it scares me. It’s not always there, but if I get stressed at work or something I can feel the burn and tingle go from my head to my legs. I’ve tried coconut oil and all kinds of thins. But the burn is still felt on my scalp, legs and shoulders and arms. I am now developing painful sores on my scalp which I guess are from the dye contact. I don’t know what is going on, and my anxiety is over the top. I was fine before the hair dye incident. But now i am so anxious and have been reading all kind of web articles which has frightened me more. These sensations are making me even more anxious. I’ve told a few friends about it and they say that maybe I need to get back on SSRIs, which makes me feel like they think I’m loosing my marbles. I think that the hair dye totally irritated my scalp and now the burning is the resultand that it will take time to heal those nerve endings on the scalp. But, my anxiety goes on overdrive when I feel the burning sensations, thinking that something is horribly wrong. Can someone please advise and if my scalp being affected by the dye being on too long has now caused all of this burning and maybe it’s just going to take time to heal? I’ve spiraled and am trying to make sense of it all. I am now hypersensitive to every instance of burning. Anxiety is a cruel beast. Thank you so much.
