This is called dysesthesia; usually secondary to b12 or folate deficiency, aging, alcohol or a pinched nerve in the spine can also give you similar pain.
Its extremely unlikley to be related to lymphocytic colitis you have, but can be due to it as well (as a result of colonic inflammation).
Just shift to low fat and low fibre diet.
It will help.
And if it does not, nerve soother medications like pregabalin can be used which will help.

I do have three underlying neurological birth defects. Syringomyelia (not active), Klippel Feil and Charcot Marie Tooth. I have had a lot of pain in the C4-C6, C8 and T-1. Have been working on ways to mitigate that discomfort while battling my gastrointestinal issues and now the possible presence of dysesthesia.
Thank you David for the follow up.
This is most likely from your spine, not from anywhere else ---- its my gut feeling.
And gabapentin or pregabalin are the atandard treatments for not only dysesthesia, but also the pain from nerve origin (like from spine).
Goodluck and Get well soon :)
