Wrinkles in upper arms

Common Questions and Answers about Wrinkles in upper arms


Avatar n tn I am 60 and am at the stage that I cover my arms whenever possible even in the gym which will be a problem in summer.I also have a similar problem with my thighs. I have recently lost quite a bit of weight which has accentuated the problem. I never seem to see other women with this problem even women much older than me. I am so angry that I have to change the way I dress as I am so embarrassed to be seen like this. I am encouraged to read all the ideas and will start to try a few.
Avatar n tn Before this, it was very rare for my veins to show. Approximately 2 weeks ago, I noticed that if I moved my forearms/upper arms a certain way, I was getting a lot of the wrinkly crepe looking skin...something I really didn't have before. Approximately 5 days ago the skin on both arms sagged. A lot. I have always had tone arms and they have changed so drastically that all I can do is keep looking and cry. I now have the flap of fatty skin hanging down and my forearm is showing loose skin also.
Avatar n tn I have had these symptoms for just over 4 years. We recently moved to the area and lived in our home for about a year and a half. They randomly appear and I honestly have no idea what triggers them. I have seen multiple dermatologist, who have run a plethora of blood test - all inconclusive. I have tried many creams, nothing that really helps. I have seen an allergist and even subjected myself to the food and pollen allergy panel of tests.

Avatar m tn I pick at my skin. My face, my legs, my arms, at times even the skin in between my breasts. pretty much any "harder" surface. so not really my thighs! I have dark spots all over them. it's been 5 years since the last time i wore a skirt, shorts or short sleeves! It bothers me so much.it was amazing how reading the comments here felt like I had written them! I find that pick at my skin mostly at nights, when I need to brush my teeth and take my contacts off.
Avatar n tn A line of them in my upper eye, and a thinner layer of them in my lower eye, and then spreading thinly throughout that eye. While at the same time, my other eye is perfectly fine. What does this mean? Fortunately this time I was home, but where will I be when it strikes me next time? Any suggestions or help out there?
Avatar m tn I had that exact same red dot on the underneath of my shaft and it looked to be peeling when i streched out my skin around the area encircling the small red bump which dissapeared in 2-3 days time. I have had the same strange tingles in my legs/feet and arms particularly a slight stinging around the armpits and also around my pelvic region which is more like another slight stinging/warm feeling.
Avatar n tn i can tell when its going to happen because its starts to throb and gets itchy then can be painful when it actually bursts, but just recently the passed few months ive been getting them in my arms and especially my right leg, they have been very painful in my legs, dunno should i consult ma doc????
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar n tn I am in severe pain - in the lower back (kidney area, right and left hip (on the sides) and upper back in the middle. After about 30 min to 1 hr; it goes away. I have a sedentary job and if I sit too long, my hips will ache again and makes it slightly painful to get out of chair, but nothing like the morning. Since I had a cesearean in 1988; I have had a big stomach, so I thought that might be the reason, because when I suck in my stomach; it relieves my back.
Avatar f tn ago, nice, skin, no wrinkles on arms or legs and as if over night, skin on arms looks like a 500 yr. old, deep wrinkles and saggin 'wing' under my upper arms. i exercise my arms so it looks really bad, i can still make a muscle but arms look horrible. 4 yrs. into post menopause, i read something about cipro, i was given an rx for that before this happened? 500 mg. twice a day for 14 days. could that be what happened and how would i know?
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar f tn Hello, Apply a good sunscreen with minimum spf 30 atleast half an hour before going out in the sun. Also keep your arms covered and avoid going out in the sun at the peak sun hours like 12-4 pm. Even if you are indoors or inside a car, the UV rays of the sun can penetrate the glass to cause skin tanning. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn I should get back into regular exercising at club, but getting a new job that requires me to stand all the time is really helping with the finer points of strengthening my lower back and upper arms. I sometimes am able to remember to stand in Tadasana pose, but I do enough things right that I am reinforcing strength in the IT bands in legs, etc. Amazing how the hips and legs are so inter-connected. I have really strengthened those little parts a lot.
Avatar n tn She had an upper GI that showed a healed over ulcer in her duodenum plus a possible one in her stomach. She has tested negative to H-pylori in both the serum and breath test. 3 of the 4 attacks have come either during or shortly after her menstrual period. We are running out of ideas, can anyone help?
Avatar n tn D needs to be about 55-60, B12 in the upper end of its range and ferritin should be about 60 minimum for women.

BABINSKI SIGN: negative CRANIAL NERVE FUNCTION: abnormal DESCRIPTION OF ABNORMAL CRANIAL FUNCTION: decreased sensation upper and lower face, decreased facial wrinkles on the forehead, weakness of sternocleidomastoid and trapezial muscles 4/5.
Avatar n tn Have you tested your other hormones and see if you are in menapause? Replacing progesterone in your body with the creams you can buy in natural health food stores will make you feel and look younger too - especially helps the skin. Try seeing a dermatologist and allergist for your itch - can be thyroid related but it sounds something else. Like Excema???? Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn But yeah, I ended up gaining about 6 pounds on the Triple Tx, and I look flabby, but I was getting so wrinkled in the face, that the extra weight kind of poofed out the wrinkles, hah I remember you mentioning you were worried about being too thin, so if I were you, I would get proactive, and try to put a little weight on, so you dont worry about the weight loss later on.
Avatar n tn Although most of my weight is muscle, I have stretch marks on my upper arms and chest. Of course, I do not find them attractive, and have yet to find a girl that does. I have read a lot of information and have asked many people, and they all say that they will fade. Well.. BIG DEAL!!! If they fade they will still be there and noticeable. Laser surgery? Unless you have a good couple of thousands of dollars, forget it. You just have to accept that they will be there, just like your birthmarks.
634733 tn?1316629592 No its not as deep inside the limb as that it does feel as though it is on the skin but it burns too especially if I scratch it and at night when my arms are under the covers in bed it wakes me up itching and burning. I have just read the health page on paresthesia as Doni54 suggested and that was an eye opener.
363281 tn?1518219421 Being like a hypochondriac, muscle twinges, worry all the time, tingles, gagging, tightness in the chest, tongue twitches, shaky, breath lump, heart beat problems, head tingles, itchy tingling in arms and legs, and so many more.
Avatar m tn I also expect that you will have low Vitamin D. D should be about 55-60. Your B12 should be in the upper end of the range. Low B12 can seriously affect energy levels. So I think that is where you need to start and optimize those three and see what the effect is on your symptoms and your serum FT4 and FT3 levels.
717272 tn?1277594380 into TX, I dreaded going to be stuck in lines and stomped on by crowds but we had good seats, got right in and now that we don't drink any more (and so dehydrated) we never even had to get up till concert was over. A really good experience. I don't ever feel like doing anything anymore but I'd go again.
Avatar n tn ” If you soak in water long enough, protective oils get depleted from your skin. Water can leak in to your skin after awhile. In warm water like in a bathtub or pool, the thick skin on your fingers and toes tends to absorb water and swell. But this swelling doesn’t happen uniformly. Instead, the regions of skin that are most heavily anchored from below will remain lower than the more softened and swollen regions. The result – those temporary wrinkles on your fingers and toes.
Avatar n tn And please don't tell me to go to God, I have prayed every night and nothing ever happens, as a matter of fact things have only gotten worse-roof leaks and falling in, holes in wall from my teen, dogs poop and pee all over and stains, husband never mows cause he works offshore and too tired, my mom owns this place and keeps threatening to evict us, we have no money-sometimes for food, too, I have extreme anxiety and panic that has developed over the last several years and with unpredictable il
Avatar f tn For instance, I have heard of numbness in the arms and hands caused by carpel tunnel to be relieved when the chairi surgery was used. Unfortunately chiari surgery is brain surgery, which is not preformed unless absolutely necessary. So I don't know what to do. I keep hoping for another diagnosis just so I can treat it and continue my life. I'm just really sick of being sick!! Thanks for helping and for giving me such great info, I really do appreciate it!

Avatar m tn I was somewhat relieved but my pain in back was still there and some new symptoms arrived. My legs and arms went numb, not at same time, but like one right after the other. Then my hearing went out, with some tintinittus. The feeling came back and so did hearing (no, I wasn't having a panic attack), I got the shivers and I almost felt drunk. I have not felt right since.Concerned ,seroconversion I had HIV(several),mycoplasma/ureaplasma(1)and even a HPV oral DNA screen(2 times) to elim that.
