Hello, for the past couple months, the tip of the index finger of my left hand (I am right-handed) has been overly sensitive to pressure. When I use my hand normally, my fingertip feels like I hit it with a hammer. When I rest my hand, the pain subsides in about an hour. I've also been waking up with pain in this finger. It feels slighty warm and I can see a very faint, small, light red mark under the skin of the side of the fingertip. I don't recall injuring or over-using my hand or fingers recently. Thanks.
How are you?
This could be due to an insect bite or due to injury.
Is there any swelling in the finger? Sometimes a straw can get stuck between the layers of skin and cause a lot of pain. Hope this helps!
a few days ago my left pinky finger started hurting with absolutely no injury and has rogressivly gotten worse, swelling and hurting when the nail is easily touched. my fingertip seems dry and slightly scabby, i can barely feel anything when lightly touched, yet extreme pain after pushing with slight pressure. i also have the red dot under the skin and the pain seems to radiate around the nail part of the outside corner. i'm on a computer for work atleast 12hrs including personal pc work per day an it's not helping, which is why i'm not capitalizing words lol. i wish somone had an answer to this problem, i sure hate to see the bill the doctors gonna give me if it doesn't go away by next week. when typing alot i get more pains from my pinty tip all the way up the left side of my left hand... i'm thinking it's nerves. but when i don't type and let my hand rest, it quits hurting.
anymore suggestions would be great, as i can tell this thread is stagnant. thanks

The tip of my index finger hurts with a burning electric pain whenever I put any pressure on it.
It started a few hours after I got back from the grocery store. I was reaching for an item on the top shelf and bent my wrist down at 90 degrees. I then bumped my wrist on the edge of the shelf or something and felt a brief pain in the wrist. I didn't think anything of it.
My fingers were fine for hours because I washed my hands and pressed on them fine. After a few hours suddenly my index finger tip hurts on that hand and nothing else. The wrist does not hurt. I then remembered what happened at the grocery store and think that might have done something.
I've tried putting ice around the wrist and finger multiple times for two days and it doesn't seem to be getting better yet.
Hello, I am currently expieriencing the exact symptoms that you describe. Finger tip sensitivity, it's almost unbearable to type or click a mouse (I actually use finger guards to reduce the sensitivity). The strength in my hand is excellent, and I do not have an elevated blood glucose, or swelling, etc. I have noticed superficial red marks under a couple of my finger tips as well.
I know this is an old post, but did you ever figure out what was wrong, and/or has it resolved?
