When I touch something hot with my rt hand (pizza slice), the burning feels amplified, left hand normal. Could this be pinched nerve, or worse?

Stop!: Sensations may change as a result of 'pinched nerves' but it's not likely that this would be the only or main symptom. Certainly, don't catastrophize to even worse!! If you are right-handed and the variance is not extreme - you might just be more tuned-in to that hand's signals. If you suffered a recent spinal injury that prompted this concern - have an exam. ...Read more

What is wrong with my neck I have constant crawling and burning along with numbness in the hand? I also have a disk bulge at c4c5 please help

May not be the neck: Nerve pain/sensation in the hand, if coming from the neck, will typically be due to irritation of the nerve root at c5/6 or lower. Carpal or cubital tunnel syndrome may also cause nerve symptoms in the hand so careful examination (recommend emg/ncs) is important especially before considering any invasive neck procedures. C4/5 bulge may cause neck pain but should not radiate much below the elbow. ...Read more
