Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Numbness from elbow down to hand with cramps/burning on fingers. I have a rug burning sensation by the elbows. Both hands. Pain on upper arm to.?

Ulnar nerves: Commonest cause of this is ulnar nerve compression at the elbow. Although most of the symptoms will be experienced in forearm and hands, some symptoms may be noted in upper arms. If the funny bone is tender to the touch this is the most likely case. Don't lean on your elbows. If elbows are swollen or red, get them examined. If your hand is weak, seek medical care soon. ...Read more

Should i be concerned if I am hearing popping noises by heart? I also have burning sensation on chest, arms, pins and needles, muscle loss,

Should i be concerned if I am hearing popping noises by heart? I also have burning sensation on chest, arms, pins and needles, muscle loss,

Burning sensation: Yes, this is something to be concerned about. I can't speak to the "popping" noises that you are having, but the numbness/tingling/burning most likely is due to nerve compression at a high thoracic spine level. You need to see a physician and have an MRI ordered to evaluate if you have cord compression from a disc herniation or some other secondary cause. ...Read more

What causes a burning sensation in the viens in my fore arms? Also the muscles in my calfs keep locking up.

What causes a burning sensation in the viens in my fore arms? Also the muscles in my calfs keep locking up.

Don't know: I have never heard of burning in forearm veins unless something has been injected into them. Assuming you are not doing that (and maybe especially if you are) then you should see a clinician to find the cause of this and the leg cramps. Probably need blood tests as well. Meanwhile, keep your arms above your heart level and try some heat on them as well as your leg muscles to see if it helps. ...Read more

When i stretch my arms and legs i get a burning sensation in my muscles that last about 3-5 seconds?

May be normal: Hard to say, but with stretching and working out the muscles, sometimes the stretch is intense enough to create a burning sensation to to Lactic Acid buildup. If this happens quite often, with minor stretching, i might consider seeing a dr. Make sure you are well hydrated and take magnesium/potassium supplements, which may help. But first consult a dr. ...Read more
