Does this pain radiate into the fingers as well? If so, which ones?

Have you injured your wrist?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Yes, in my thumb and index, but more my thumb. It's a tingling sensation
Expert:  Dr. Mark replied 7 years ago.
OK.

Is the middle finger also involved?
Is this over the palm side of the fingers/wrist, or the back of the hand?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

The middle finger is not involved. And the burning sensation is really on the left side of my right wrist. But it may radiate over the palm side more than the back of the hand

 

Expert:  Dr. Mark replied 7 years ago.
Sorry, when you say left side of the right wrist -- that could be either side, depending on if your palm is up, or down.

Is this the thumb side of the wrist? Or the pinky side of the wrist?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
thumb side
Expert:  Dr. Mark replied 7 years ago.
OK, thanks.

One of the possibilties could be nerve compression at the wrist - aka carpal tunnel syndrome -- which would cause discomfort on the palm side of the hand, involving the thumb, index, and middle fingers.

Certainly this is a possibility for your pains.

Other possibilities involve arthritic conditions at the wrist itself (unusual for your age), and tendon inflammation, like de Quervains tenosynovitis:

so take a look at both links, and see which one seems to fit your case. Then seeing your doctor for an exam in person would be helpful.
