Hi all, does anyone have any help in dealing with painful burning hands? The more I use my hands the more they hurt. Grabbing,typing on here, folding clothes, dressing, dishes,etc.. even scratching my head hurts my hands. I am awaiting a new MRI on my C Spine for possible surgery. Some arm and elbow pain but not alot. Dr. thinks it could be nerve damange... But in the mean time does anyone have any help for this? I have tried aspercream, but it does not help.


  • About the only thing I know helps is to lay down and get the pressure off my neck, and or to hold your arm over your head. There are also some medications that can help like lyrica, cymbalta or neurontin. Sometimes a muscle relaxer can help if you having spasms and it is pushing to hard causing the pain. So if you have trigger points you can try using a tennis ball and placing it between you and a wall and pressing into the trigger point and that might help. Hope you can get some relief soon. Good luck on the images.
