Patient :When I touch something my hands feel like they're on fire. I also have numbness in my hands. I have just been through a bad bout of flu where I had the usual vomiting and diarrhea, headache, gastric distress, fever of 100.5, sweating, and seizures which I assumed were fever related. Can you give me any insight into why my hands are on fire?
Symptoms: Hands and fingers are numb; hands feel like they're on fire to the touch.
