Hi I'm 19 and from the time I was 16 I have been experiencing burning/stinging pain in my right hand's vein is that normal are should I worry?

Possible...: Sounds like carpal tunnel syndrome which presents with hand pain which could be burning and associated with numbness and occasional cramping especially when using your hand. This is caused by repetitive use of the hand and nerve irritation. There are also other nerve irritation syndromes that cause similar symptoms esp. If you have had injuries in the past. Make sure you see your dr. For full exam. ...Read more

Could right hand pain in situs inversus person indicate heart problem?

Could right hand pain in situs inversus person indicate heart problem?

Situs Inversus: If you have situs inversus (your abdominal organs are opposite of "normal" people - so your stomach/spleen are on the right side and your liver/gall bladder on the left) but you have a totally anatomically normal heart (even if it is in your right chest)-I doubt your hand pain is related to your heart.

I've haf this lower right hand pain which has come and gone over a few days. I have an old ergo keyboard. Should I switch?

Yes: Yes, but if the pain does not disappear, the cause needs to be identified. It can be tendon/joint problems (arthritis, tendinitis, etc.) or nerve disease (carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.). Many of these conditions are treatable and the tests (blood work, x-rays, nerve conduction tests) are available through your regular physician. If no abnormality is found, the problem may still be ergonomic. ...Read more

Right hand pain when doing foreplay. Carpal tunnel? Too much repetitive motion?

Not likely: It may be the position of your hand during foreplay. Extremes of wrist flexion or extension may put pressure on the median nerve, inside the carpal tunnel. Thumb arthritis is also a common cause of hand pain. Either of these conditions could be your problem. Try to get into a comfortable position and if you start to feel discomfort, change positions. ...Read more
