Painful goosebumps

Does anyone else have this issue? I get goosebumps really easy, at the slightest little chill. Lately the ones on my legs actually HURT! Especially if i'm moving and my jeans are rubbing on them. It's so annoying!

  • I, too, get goosebumps at the slightest chill. My armhairs stand on end also. I have NO idea what causes this...I have to take jackets everywhere I go, even when it is warm to everyone else. Some people laugh-they think it is funny but they don't understand why my teeth chatter and the goosebumps can be painful.

  • I'm the same way CoCoMom. I'm really thin, so i dont think it helps that i have no natural insulation! Lol! My husband gets frustrated with me because i like to keep the house so warm, and my bosses at work make fun of me because i run the little space heater under my desk YEAR ROUND! :p I wonder if it's just the tenacity of our goosebumps that make them painful? Weird, i dont know!

  • Sometimes they hurt a bit if your skin is really dry, at least for me.

  • That could be KTMOM. We have really hard well water here, and haven't been able to get a softener in yet so my skin is always really dry. Maybe i'll try moisturizing a lot more and see if it helps! I just really DONT like lotion!
