I Have This Aweful Burning In My Right Pincky Finger And Middle Knuckle.. Also A Deep Aching Pain In Hand And Forearm .. What Is This?

I have an awful burning in my right pinky finger and middle knuckle, along with a deep, aching pain in my hand and forearm. What could this be?

Answer

Burning sensations are usually a sign of nerve problems. These symptoms can be caused by the 'entrapment' or compression of the nerve that travels over your elbow and then into your fingers (ulnar nerve entrapment). That entrapment could occur at the elbow or as the nerves enter the hand.

You might want to try some inflammatories to see if you can remove some inflammation but you'll need to see a doctor to get this diagnosed.
