Does Anyone Experience Sudden Burning Pain In The Fingers?

Does Anyone Experience Sudden Burning Pain In The Fingers?

I am experiencing burning, throbbing pain in my left pinky and ring finger, followed by a sensation of being swollen. Starts at my fingertips and intesifies by the cuticles and not in the joints but in the skin. I usually only have the burning pain in my back, arms and legs. Finger tips are a first for me.

Have the doctor test you for Gout. It starts usually in the nails and works around the body. Have them check your Uric Acid level and blood tests will be needed.

I have been experiencing that too. Heat helps, as does medicated lotions.

Yes, me too. my guess it is what's called 'small fiber neuropathy'. The small fiber nerves are the ones that send the signals of touch, temperature, and pain. Neuropathy means they get a little confused and send the wrong signals - burning, throbbing. I think it feels like not wearing skin! It cannot be diagnosed with a nerve conduction test as that only tests motor nerves. Can't be accurately diagnosed outside the Mayo Clinic as they invented the means to test for it. Lyrica helps. If you can't afford it you can apply to Pfizer for Patient Assistance. That's how I get mine.
