I woke and my right hand hurts and has a burning sensation for going on 10 minutes I can even feel it in my elbow? help please!

Get seen by the PCP: and get a Wrist Brace to keep your wrist straight, if the burnng and pain affects the thumb to middle fingers; If the ring and pinky are affected, then avoiding bending the elbow too much can help. Keeping it at about 20 to 60 degrees would allow the swelling around the pinched nerve to subside, allowing symptoms to improve.

Don't worry: You are being tested and to the extent possible, you'll be treated. I'm not saying these are not bad conditions but worry will do nothing to help and will make things worse. Take it seriously and find a really good supportive Health Psychologist to guide your understanding of the medical picture as it forms. Also try to keep from touching those veins (moving them). Leave it alone and try to relax. ...Read more
