For about 6 weeks, Ihave had a burning pain in the right hand in the palm upper part where the ring finger starts. In the night, the finger will go into a fist and I have to pry it or put it in hot water to loosen it up When I straighten it out, it is painful down the inside to the palm. I have no grip in my right hand now, cannot use a manual can opener, hard to hold a pencil, or shift the car. I went to my dr. and they x-rayed it and said it was fine, they found nothing. She said it will go away, it has been two weeks and I am still waiting for "it" to go away. I am active and holding the lawn mower handle is difficult, almost impossible, I have to use the heel of the palm of my hand. I haven't even tried using the gas on my motorcyle this year. I cannot ride my scooter or hold the treadmill because of the pain of grasping.Hard for me to straighten the hand open and harder for me to form a fist. Help. I wear no jewelry.
You do not have any defect in your bone, clean on your X-ray but this is a neurological problem effecting the motor nerve which supplies your ring finger so you have to visit a neurologist for the treatment.
