Addisons disease and experiencing shocking prickling feeling in entire body
 
I am 28 years old and have had Addison's disease for about 3 years. Yesterday I was sitting down and all of a sudden I felt a shocking prickling sensation throughout my entire body. It hurts so much it itches. I went to bed but ended up awake all night because the prickling sensation was happening all night. Sometimes it's short and other times it lingers. I found that pain medication didn't work but putting cold wet towels on my back and legs felt better but the pain hasn't gone away. It was so painful, I threw up. I don't know what's wrong but i am going to my doctor tomorrow. At first I thought it could be shingles. But I ruled it out because its through my entire body and shingles is only on a part of your body. I thought it might be dry skin so I lathered up on lotion. The pain is still there and I feel like I'm scratching up my body. Oh and when I was throwing up, the prickling sensation got worse. I'm so confused and I just want it to go away.
