Pain/Burning Feeling

I was in an ATV accident. I had broke my collar bone in 3 places and had a deep fracture of the wrist. (Both being on my left side.) I got a cast put on my wrist and had surgery on Tuesday the 18th on my shoulder. I had a metal plate and screws put in to fix my collarbone. (Not sure if its titanium or surgical steel, yet.) So, I am fixed on that part, but the day after the wreck, the lower part of my right hand was sore. Still, to this day, it is sore. My wreck was about 2 weeks ago. The pain is below my palm, to the left. Sorta like the butt of your hand. (The area between bottom of palm and left side. Middle of the bottom of your hand basically.) When I press on or put pressure on it, it burns. What could be wrong? Possible nerve damage or fracture? There is no discoloration or temperature difference at the area or soreness.

Re: Pain/Burning Feeling

The burning sounds like nerve damage. Considering the surgery, you may have the nerve pain for a while, until it heals. You still need to talk to te surgeon about it. There are certain meds that are good for nerve pain. Pain pill (opiates) tend to not do much for nerve pain. Ask your doctor about Neurontin, Lyrica, or Topamax. Hope you feel better soon!
