Is it serious to have a vein in my left hand that is a burning sensation.

Is it serious to have a vein in my left hand that is a burning sensation.

Probably not serious: Veins anywhere in the body usually cause no symptoms unless they have a problem such as a clot, inflammation or trauma. There are also many nerves in your hand which can cause similar symptoms. If your vein was the source of the burning it should show some signs of irritation such as swelling, hardness, red color or inflammation. Try local care with heat and ibuprofen. If no better, see an md. ...Read more

Why does sometimes my right testis veins swells and pain after urination? It lasts for 30 minutes & back to normal. Burning sensation sometimes

See answer: Your symptoms are somewhat atypical. If you truly have enlarged veins within the scrotum, would be consistent with a varicocele. That said, they are much more common on the left side, are usually asymptomatic, and would have no connection to the act of urination. Non-bacterial prostatitis is common in young males and may be associated with testicular pain and burning sensation. See md if persists. ...Read more

Burning sensation in feet& legs. Vein Dr. Says it's not veins. But I should see a Neurologist? Could nerves be causing all this burning?

Burning and nerves: Yes, the sensation of burning is probably caused by problems with the nerves more than any other source, besides changes in the skin, which can be seen. If the area that feels like burning is the same on both sides, and the skin looks okay, it makes sense to consider if it is the nerves, or at least, something that is bothering the nerves. ...Read more

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

No: No, the median nerve supplies the thumb, index, and middle fingers; so even extreme damage to the median nerve would not directly affect the chest. But is possible you had more of a systemic reaction to the steroids you were given, although there are other potential causes as well. I would discuss the specifics of your case with your doctor. ...Read more
