Rash on face neck and arms
4 Replies
lvolsen - April 13

I was diagnosed about 4 mo ago. I have had symptoms for approx 20 years. Dr. prescribed Savella - seems to be helping-more good days than bad. I have read a few old posts of a rash on face and neck. Mine has occured randomly - face, neck & sometimes arms & hands feel hot and burning extremely red, splotchy and itchy symtoms last for 30-60 minutes. It happened 3 times today within about a 5 hour time frame.
Any help, ideas, causes, similar experiences?
Thanks for your help.

lvolsen - I think that you may be having an allergic reaction to Savella. A rash is one of the side effects that indicates an allergic reaction. You need to call your doctor right away. Take care.

I have a rash on my hand that comes and goes similar to what you are describing. My Doctor has thinks it is a gluten intolerance rash. Google "Dermatitis Herpetiformis"

I spoke with my GP and he felt I should go off the Savella, because of the ever incrasing rash. I decreased dosage and have been off almost a week. I know now, the Savella was definately making a difference, I have had more bad than good days since. I am frustrated that I am reacting to something that actually worked for me. Has anyone else had simalar experience with Savella?

I did not have a rash from Savella but it made me hysterical. I called the manufacturer and they said that I was experiencing "an adverse reaction" (duh). I just could not handle the emotional highs and lows. I noticed a difference in how I was feeling after being on it for three days. I was really disappointed as it was the first thing that I had tried that actually seemed to help. I am sorry that you had to go off of it. I totally understand how frustrated that you must feel. Take care.
