A nerve strain can cause the burning/ numbness sensations you have described. Exercise or stretches can make this worse. Allow yourself and those areas to rest for at least 5 days. Apply alternating Hot/ cold packs each for 10 minutes separated by at least 30 minutes. Take Ibuprofen to relieve inflammation, and see your personal Dr for a full in person exam.
