Common Questions and Answers about Thumb pain burning

finger

For the past few days I have been experencing a burning sensation (comes and goes) in my left thumb (where your fingerprint is). The senstaion is only in my thumb. Otherwise, my hands are fine. I was wondering what is causing this weird burning sensation.
It felt like I bruised the palm of my hand at first. Now I feel a burning sensation when I manipulate my thumb such as stretching it or touching it. It hurts to grab an object at first. I still work out with free weights without too much pain. Although i still have a constant burning or bruised feeling on the palm of my hand. Is this arthritis or tendon inflammation?
But recently i have started experiencing burning sensation and mild pain in my left thumb (Around the base of my left thumb actually) And a vein has popped out near the base of my thumb whereas there is nothing as such on he right thumb. What could it be?
i have burning sensation at the thumb of my both hands. It comes and go on during the day. sometimes it is very high but sometimes hardly to bother me.
I have been seeing doctors for the last four to five years but a lot more the last two years trying to get a cure or diagnosis for pain that I have in my right palm and thumb area. The pain is a burning/throbbing/and hyper sensitive to the touch or when I rub something. I am a mechanical designer so when I get up from my desk I usually have pain along the thumb unless I am holding on to something when I stand up.
It doesn't feel like a stabbing or burning pain - more like a constant aching soreness. The thumb is very sensitive to cold as well and and gets aggravated just washed my hands when the water hits the top part of my thumb on the nerve. I suggested a cortisone shot to the hand surgeon. He told me after the MRI showed that everything was normal that I was not a candidate for surgery or anything else and there was nothing else he could do. Basically referring me to a physical therapist.
about 2 years ago, i had shingles in my left thumb which was a surprise to me as i had never heard you could get it in your thumb, since then, i keep getting a burning sensation in my thumb in the same place that the blister was, what could cause this, does shingles affect nerve endings or is there some other reason why this could be happening??
Most commonly, local thumb pain may be a result of trauma or arthritis (i.e., inflammation of the joints). If you thumb pain involves more than just the tip, a cervical radiculopathy (i.e., a herniated disk in your neck) may be causing the symptoms. Have you seen you primary care physician? I would recommend you discuss this with him/her. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
Since it all started I have had pain in the wrist elbow, shoulder and neck. Most of the pain is achey and burning. It's very distincive burning pain that radiates where ever it seems to want to hurt me. I am at such a bad place right now. i have no answers, I am severly depressed, i saw others talking about this ... But to add into the conversation, Where ever it burns most and hurts most I have started to develop little red dots that get bigger over time.
My problem is the doc did not seem too concerned about the continued burning pain in the thumb and the physical therapist did not answer the direct question of will the therapy repair the burning issue. As a police officer I am concerned about the ability to use and retain my weapons as needed. Given this information what are the suggestions?
Anyway when the nurse inserted the needle for the IV she did it on the wrist close to my thumb. When she inserted it I felt as if I had been electrically shocked on my thumb and pointer. Now the inside of both fingers are numb. My knuckle on my pointer is painful and if I try to grasp things with those two fingers I feel the same shock. If I touch the vein she entered it is quite sensitive and I feel shocked on the thumb. Will this feeling ever go away.
In my early teen years, I'm 20 now, brown spots began to cover my hands. The spots felt weird to the touch. I was taken to the doctor's for it. I gave me a seperate appointment to test the skin; however, they set the appt. on a day they were closed. VERY NICE. Weeks later, the spots went away. Soon after, my hands started to ache. Stiffness of joints, painful, & burning inflamation. Have not done anything about it.
Mon 9 year old son just started having a burning sensation on the thumb side of the index fingers. Its happened a few of times.

Very similar story, earlier elbow/arm,shoulder pain that disappeared, but no known injury and 62 year old female, use computer mouse, keyboard a lot. No pain in thumb, just doesn't work to bend last distal joint.in right thumb. Same story, first noticed with trying to use a lighter. First joint seems to work fine. Just thought it was a curious mystery "fluke" associated with age, and not a big deal. But I guess it's been about 5 weeks so wondering how others have fared.
Hi, Last month i went to a eye hospital for treatment for burning sensation on one eye during computer usage,they dilated my eyes and the ophthalmologist applied some pressure on bottom of that eye using his thumb for some seconds and he examined using his slit lamp & told me that i have some infection on eyelids and its caused by dandruff & he gave me some antibiotic ointment.
I have a burning and aching sensation in the tips of my thumb and index finger on my left hand. this has been happening frequently, which sometimes makes it hard to hold things. There is also what looks like a hollow line or vein in that spot of the two fingers, having a black color. It hurts less when in cold temperature. Can u tell me what this might be?
However I will try to provide you with some useful information. Which finger is it?? The thumb and the first two and a half fingers are supplied by the Median nerve, and the half of the ring finger and the little finger are supplied by the Ulnar nerve.
I think you need to give a little more information to get some responses. Burning pain typically means nerve pain, but not always. How did the pain present initially and what was the course? Have you seen a doctor? A good rule of thumb is for anything that lasts longer than 2 weeks to see a doctor. (For things that aren't life-threatening; obviously you don't wait on things like chest pain, etc.) I hope you can add some information.
A burning sensation indicates nerve pain. Lyme has been known to cause burning sensations, but more widespread, as Jackie said. If this is your only symptom, you could just have an irritated or damaged nerve to that toe. Since the pains sounds bad, you might consider a visit to the doctor to search for a cause or to get an appropriate pain med.

Bottom line is the benefits of Procrit should outweigh any sides. As far as burning...did you inject it cold, or did you let it warm up for 20-30 minutes. Whatever you did the first time, try it the other way next time. Also, maybe injecting into more fat might help, but yes, Procrit often burns, it's the nature of the beast. Sounds like your doctor wants you to treat for 64 weeks. I wouldn't call this normal, I'd call this agressive, although still within boundaries.
Symptoms involve pain in the hands and arms when typing and using the mouse, and generally end up making many daily activities painful or impossible. Burning, numbness, or tingling in your palm, wrist, thumb, or fingers also are the common symptoms encountered by most patients. Common causes are a repetitive motion with your wrist like typing on a computer keyboard, using a computer mouse, playing racquetball or handball, sewing, painting, writing, or using a vibrating tool.
My hand often feels colder than the other when this burning arm pain kicks in. I feel the source where it starts under my shoulder blade and if push my fingers the right way I can feel a small pea like bump at times. I thought it would get relief on its own in time though it seems to be getting worse...burning more, tingling more, more often (not 24-7 but at least daily sometimes all day sometimes not) Nothing relieves the pain as far as tylenol aleve etc...nor massage and all the basics.
I broke my back a couple of months ago and had to take oxycodone and this has helped to releave the pain. I also found out a year ago prior the start of the burning (it started sometime in Sept) that I have a genetic desease which relates to my blood will not allow the vitamin B6 or Zinc to stay in my system. I found out that 10% of the population have this and never know it. B6 helps the nervious system and without it, you can also have depression and other mental health issues.
I have had surgery on both my shoulders. The procedure was called "acromioplasty clavicle repair" It has been 4 years and now out of the blue my right shoulder is burning all the time and I am not able to pull the blankets up or reach for something without a very sharp pain in my shoulder. I am going in for surgery on my right wrist on 7/29/08 for a joint replacement and a thumb extension and now this happens. What do I do. I hurt soooo bad and I am scared.
To complicate matters, I thought I was pregnant last month and was experiencing burning pain in right breast/nipple and attributed the pain to that possibility. I have since found out I am not....I went to the Dr.'s and they said I have muscle spasms under right shoulder blade. I have been extremely stressed. My husband's diagnosis completely shook me up. Fortunately, it was caught early and he was given a great prognosis. He feels fine now and I'm left feeling awful from the stress.
By way of background, I've been abruptly awaken almost every night for the last month with acute, burning pain shooting down my left arm. Starting on the outside surface edge of my front left shoulder, it shoots down the outside surface of the upper arm and elbow, then crosses over the forearm to my thumb and first two fingers. This excruciatingly painful contraction then causes these fingers and related portions of my hand to burn severely and turn extremely numb.
