Fingertip pain

Postby Shaker-ing-Steve » Tue Feb 20, 2018 8:07 am

Hello all
Does anyone experience fingertip pain? I can't text/type without using a stylus pen as my fingertips are unbelievably painful?
Really struggling with burning skin all over, struggling to live with everything

Hi S

I haven't experienced fingertip pain, but my hands do get painful, and seize up - especially if I'm typing too long. I have had the burning skin - I bought aloe vera gel from Holland & Barratt, and that helped. Give it a try. Or what about aftersun lotion? They may give some relief.
It's a horrible sensation. I told my GP about it and he just gave me "that look".
Funnily enough, since I've had the gabapetin increased, I rarely experience it.
It's trial and error to find things that work for you.

Much Love
