    Ok... anymore whenever I shiver the scars on my arms tingle. Mostly the deeper ones, especially where I burned myself with the zippo.

    Anyone else get this?

    i`m sorry if i don`t get exacly what you mean, i`m not a fully english speaker, but if you mean tingling by "like heartbeating" on your wound i know what you mean, it happens because your body starts healing itself^^

    No, more like pins and needles when your hand or such falls asleep? Only it's very brief.

    I don't think I cut deep enough to do nerve damage.

    sorry...but sound like nerve damage to me.. remember that there's nerves at the very tips of your skin and its all attached..so its very easy to damage nerves. :blink:

    I get that feeling also. I think it is nerve damage and it is only in my worst scars as well. I feel it whenever I am really cold and sometimes if my arm falls asleep the scar areas hurt the most. They also turn like a purple color when I am cold. Anyone have that problem?

    I've gotten that before, when the cold rushes by on the wind, your skin contracts a little, stretching the scars. At least, that's what I believe.

    There's also that constant 'itch' I seem to have, that only goes away when I cut, and comes back soon after, that could be what you're talking about also?
