Really bad burning sensation in my right arm
I wake up time after time with my right arm, shoulder, and hand burning incrediably bad. To the point i can`t eat, pick up small things, or take a bath. What causes my arm to burn so bad?
That may be a sign of nerve related pain. If your symptoms are transient, there may be compromise to the nerves when you are sleeping, such as in thoracic outlet syndrome. An evaluation by a physician is recommended.
