Hi everyone,

For the last 2 weeks I haven't been able to sleep. In general I tend to have more pain at night, but the last 2 weeks my arm and leg on the right side of my body have been burning! My hand, foot, fingers, elbows, everything has this burning sensation!

I've never had this before. Nighttime has become absolute HELL without sleep, and getting up in the morning is almost impossible. I'm supposed to be going back to my part-time job after working from home, and I'm kind of freaking out. I can't be functional like this.

Have any of you had this before?

@cavalier99 Hello Cavalier99, thank you for opening this discussion. I'm sorry you're going through that, it sounds quite painful! Let me tag some members who can potentially share with you.

Hello all, how are you doing? Have you ever had a burning sensation in your extremities, particularly at night? What have you done to ease the pain? Do you have any advice to share?

I am grateful that Naproxen works for me and has for about 3 years. I take 2 -500 mg every day because the pain is too intense. I also use Gabapentin when I need too. This works also but wears off quicker than the naproxen. My burning pain is isolated to my left arm. Very intense. Was in the ER once and they had to give me an IV of Toradal. Hang in there, it sucks I know.

@cavalier99 @Cynthianicks I've had this too at night, it seems to come in phases for me. It's really awful. Naproxen has also realy worked for me. Cavalier99, have you seen any improvement?

Hello! I'm new to Carenity and I joined for the very same reason! The burning at night is all over for me, and its been going on for the past two weeks. I've tried motrin and Lyrica 75mg before bed to no avail. I'm going to increase my Lyrica and pray it helps.
