Burning Feeling In Fore Arm Symptoms
Could occasionally feeling a sensation of burning drops falling on my hand when I put pressure on my arm by laying on it be a symptom of neuropathy?
Maybe: It depends on how long the pressure is on the arm before you have the sensation. If it occurs rapidly then there could be a problem. If it takes a while then it may be a normal reaction due to decreased blood flow from the pressure on the arm. The other possibility is it could stem from your depression, as many sensory symptoms can be due to significant depression. See your doctor. ...Read more

For the past week, my chest has been hurting consistently. There's numbness in my left arm, sharp pains, a burning feeling, and stiffness. Any idea?
Possible disc injury: Being 21 years old makes it unlikely that this pain is cardiac in nature. More likely you have a disc injury in your neck which is causing this issue. A c6-7 disc injury frequently causes chest (pectoralis) pain which can radiate into the tricep and arm. It can also cause numbness/tingling down the arm to the index and middle finger. I recommend you see a spine specialist. ...Read more
