A possible musculoskeletal disorder.?
Hi there,

Im a programmer so most of my day is spent in front of a computer...

For the past two days I've been experiencing a slight burning sensation on my right arm. Starting at my fingers and going right up to my shoulder. It feels almost like sunburn.

My right hand is also bit sore, almost as if I've sprained it.

I am also feeling some discomfort just above my elbow (right arm)...

Do you have any suggestions of what might could be causing it and how to solve it..?

Liam, it’s probably due to inflammation somewhere (difficult to pinpoint from this side of the screen) and it’s safe to take an anti-inflammatory like Brexecam® for 3-5 days to see if it doesn’t want to clear up. If it doesn’t clear up, the best would be to see your doctor so that he can examine you and maybe take x-rays to make sure it isn’t due to a neck or shoulder problem. Good luck.
