Have you talked to your therapist or pdoc about this? I hate to sound like a Mom here, especially since I'm not one, but that does sound pretty dangerous to me. Wound care, if nothing else. I hate to think of how bad that must feel for you, and how frightening that must be for you.

Have you told your T about the new aspects of it? The first rule in veterinary medicine is that, when confronted by new behaviors, rule out any physical cause for them before assuming it's behavioral. That sounds pretty reasonable for human care, too, as far as I'm concerned. Rule out something like hormonal changes, or a subclinical infection, or something weird like maybe an inflammatory syndrome starting up.

You don't have to give any details at all, but are you aware of anything new in your life that might have triggered this change? More stress than usual? I guess what I'm asking is this: are you aware of what changed, whether you are ready to talk to your T about it yet or not?

Last, and this is one of those personal questions I can ask and you have no reason to answer if you don't want to, does your T ever talk about this as a behavior, rather than a dx? You know, talking about finding other outlets for the pain? I'm really just curious about what the current treatment is like, not asking for any details about you that you might not want to get into.

Best good luck to you.
