DearCustomer

 

In my opinion i think this is a manifestation of unknown aetiology and at this stage can not relate this to any condition that is to my knowledge without presence of other symptoms.

 

I will opt out and let other experts to share their thoughts. When I opt out automatically this question gets relisted and other experts [a neorulogist] will attempt to clarify. Take care.

 

with healthiest regards,

Dr.Renjusha

I'm not sure this is a neurologic issue, but:

1) do you have this burning sensation also in the forearms, or upper arm?

2) does it only affect certain fingers?

3) are both hands equally affected, or is one hand worse?
