About 15 years ago I accidentally put a serrated bread knife through my left hand. I did not do any damage except to the nerves. I have a tingling sensation in this finger when I touch it. I have in the past 6-8 weeks developed a burning sensation that starts at the big knuckle and will run down to the tip of my finger. Sometimes if I accidently hit that fingernail against something, it will hurt.
I am also type 2 diabetic. My question is what is causing the pain? My doctor believes it could be diabetic neuropathy and has put me on neurotin. My other thought was if it was nerve damage from the knife laceration? And what can be done other than medication and ice?
