What causes lumps in veins of forearm, wrist burning after spinal surgery?

Hi I recently had spinal surgery and whilst all was great thereafter I have developed little lumps in the veins in my lower forearm and am having burning sensations in my wrists above my palm more severe at night than during the day.I am female aged 57, height 1.6 and weigh 62 kls. I have enjoyed remarkable health and eat sensibly. I do not like taking medication but am currently taking 6 Myprodol per day to control the burning pain in my wrists. I have had a Nerve conduction study to check for carpel tunnel and also a sensory nerve test and no compression on nerves detected. I

Hi,

You could take pregabalin capsules for relief from nerve related pain and burning. The initial dose is 75 mg per day at night, which can be increased to up to a maximum of 300 mg per day in two divided doses.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist

My husband is 10 days post-spine surgery and we re in a rehab center. Today, he had an incident of confusion; he could not form words or thoughts for about 15 minutes. The nursing staff checked him but seem unconcerned. He is fine now, but he keeps saying that something has happened. What is your best advice for any action on our part? Do we just wait for him to stroke out? Thank you. cece

I am having terrible hip, leg ,,thigh and muscle pain since my Dec. 3rd. spinal surgery. The pain is only on my left side. Most of my pain was on that side before surgery but it was nerve endings shooting down my leg.(spinal steniosis?) Why so much muscle muscle pain? No more back or leg nerve pain.
