Red marks on body. Why are they painful? What can they be?

Hi, I have had this condition for almost 5yrs now, I did go to the doctors but I forgot what he said it was, as he didnt explain much to me. I have red long marks appear on my body in all places and they burn , they dont stay they go away after a day or two but come back again all the time, its so painful to live with and the doctor did not tell me anything that I can do to help this condition. Could you tell me what it is and how I can relieve the pain when they appear. The doctor said it can last 5 yrs or more. Is this right? thankyou.
