My left forearm is burning. It happens several times a week and has been happening for the last 4 months, I believe...it seems after lunch.

  • Let me tell ya, I had it for ten years...got rid of it with aggressive treatments--acupuncture and magnet therapy, detox baths..I think it was a type of radiation from dental work or whatever...the clorox baths seemed to help...only had one acupuncturists that helped it, which is good, but went through about four of them first...and then...it just came back after being gone for five years so am getting acupuncture tomorrow..at's not as severe as it used to be so maybe I can calm it down again...it may show up as arthritis, but I think it's from x-rays or dental work.

  • When I get dental xrays, my chest and arms are ALWAYS shielded. You'd get more radiation from sitting in front of a color TV and taking a long airplane trip. Is the burning in the arm on the skin, or deeper. Does it feel muscular or nerve? If nerve, it might be carpal tunnel, ulnar nerve impingement etc. Do you sit at a computer? Do you religiously use wrist supports and ergonomic placement of the hands in whatever you do. Do you work with computers or use your hands manually?
