I ask because I had a friend years ago with that problem....it was on his arms. I remember he said he had to be very careful when he drank not to pick a fight (he had a mouth) because he lost all feeling in his upper arms *where the kp was* and frankly couldn't put up his dukes if he wanted to. It made me wonder if the healing people are having from the OP is due to an increased circulation to those areas where the kp is present, as oping definitely helps with the blood circulation, and if it is somehow related to the healing process. I know that it helps clear excess fluid from injury sites and that many experience relief from soreness and joint swelling.
Are there any theories as to what causes it?
