The Cause Of The Ring Finger Sometimes Feels Hot?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask, why is it that recently my right ring finger feels hot or stung (electrocuted) even though I don’t touch anything related to heat, cables etc. r n r nand it doesn’t happen once, repeatedly just not often r n r I guess why do you think?
Hello good morning Dyan.
Complaints of burning or electric sensation in the fingers can be caused by several possibilities:
nervous breakdown. The inner ring finger nerves originate from the ulnar nerve, which runs from the elbow and extends to the inner forearm, and then ends to the ring and pinky fingers. Repeated pressure on the area of the nerve can cause neurological disorders such as a burning sensation, electric shock, tingling and pain.
Guyon's Canal syndrome / Ulnat tunnel syndrome. Namely the trapping of the ulnar nerve (the innervation mentioned above) in a tunnel called Guyon's canal (located in the wrist parallel to the rivet and ring finger). The causes are repetitive movements, wrist fractures, ganglion cysts on the wrist, etc.
deficiency of nerve vitamins, namely vitamins B1, B6, and B12
inflammation of the blood vessels around the fingers (vasculitis)
If the complaints you experience are prolonged and don't go away, or are getting more frequent or getting worse, we recommend that you check with a neurologist to find out the exact cause. The doctor will perform a physical examination directly and if necessary will order additional examinations such as X-rays, MRI, etc.
Meanwhile, reduce the repetitive movements of your hands, rest your hands whenever you don't really need them (for example, if you don't really need them, reduce typing, play on your cellphone, etc.). You can help massage the part of the finger that feels hot to reduce complaints.
That's all, hope it helps.
Greetings, dr. Denisa
