Hello and hope you are doing well.

Your symptoms of burning sensation and pain could be due to the bone spur irritating the nerves. Nerve conduction studies are usually diagnostic. It could also be due to carpal tunnel syndrome, only further evaluation can tell. In the meantime avoid all those movements and exercises which aggravate your symptoms and take OTC Ibuprofen pain medication. Ensure to take this medication after food to avoid gastritis.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
