Alright, any pins and needles?
Alright any pain in the fingers?
no, just the burning sensation in forefinger and thumb
Okay -- any pain in the back of the neck?
Is the burning towards the palmar side of the fingers or the back of the fingers?
Okay -- Do you have any other medical conditions or are you on any medication?
I am on diovan for blood pressure and allegra for allergies
Alright, although there is an incidence of paraesthesias associated with Diovan but they are rare and should occur in different places instead of occurring at the same place all the time.
This seems more likely to be due to irritation of the median nerve.
This can be at the level of the elbow or at the level of the wrist.
When at the level of the wrist this is also known as Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.
When the nerve is entrapped between tendons of the flexor muscles.
You need to get this evaluated by a physician. Till then you can wear a wrist support and restrict vigorous activity with the right hand.
A clinical examination and some work up will pin point a diagnosis.
