Hi Dr. David
There is no point in me sending you a JPG of the hand as this looks perfectly normal. There is no redness, or rash or any visible sign of why this part of the skin on my right hand should be soar. It is more like a prickly/burning sensation. It is really hard to describe. Today for instance I have no problem with it at all, there is no discomfort at all but tomorrow it may be back to the soarness. Have you ever come across this condition before?
As your reply indicates it could be from neuropathy.(I'm not quite sure what that is) I do play a lot of golf could this cause the problem. I have been a golfer for some considerable years but would this suddenly develop? If this is the cause why would it come and go. I normally play twice a week but recently I have been playing one or two more days some weeks. Perhaps you could explain what the inlet nerve is in the elbow.
