I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you ask your physician to serum TSH as imbalance of thyroid hormone may present with similar priclkly sensation as you described.Also ask the physician to do fasing blood glucose levels as glucose level alterations may cause similar paresthesias(prickling sensation on face,chest).Ask the physician to do complete metabolic panela as imbalance of electrolytes like serum sodium,potassium and calcium too may cause similar symptoms too.
