It's progressively felt worse, I tried icing it with no relief and taking max doses of ibuprofen. I've currently been on Wellbutrin for the last 5 months. This symptom has occurred since about a week ago

I have no itching or peeling, no pain in fingers but i do have a sharp pain occasionally in my thumb's print when i touch my screen on my phone. No neck stiffness. I have a burning sensation in a particular spot in my forearm but not the entire arm. No swelling in my fingers either.

Hello,I understand your concern.Well as you describe,this can be a carpal tunnel syndrome or even from arthritis or a vascular compromise, that is a decreased peripheral blood supply.The carpal tunnel is a narrow tunnel formed by the bones and other tissues of your wrist.Any condition that causes swelling or a change in position of the tissue within the carpal tunnel can squeeze and irritate the median nerve resulting in intense pain, burning sensation. Arthritic changes can occur in the fingers more around the bony areas like your knuckles. Warm compresses instead of application of ice are better.You need to have this examined by a doctor for a clinical examination in next few days as your symptoms are progressive in nature.Early diagnosis and prompt treatment have good outcome.So make an appointment with your doctor.Hope this helps.Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.Please to not forget a positive rating.We are here to help you until you satisfy.
