I have been experiencing burning sensation on the back of my left hand (upper thumb region) since last night. It has happened to me occasionally in the last few weeks, but for just a few seconds. I've called my doctor and I'm going to see her in a few hours. I also had a headache last night (right side), something that hadn't happened to me in a very long time. It went away with tylenol extra strength, aspirin didn't work. Also, lately my eyes (especially the right one) has been really dry and I'm using eye drops to relieve the pain caused by the dryness. Anybody has an idea on what is going on with me? I'm a 38-year old, healthy woman. Thanks!
