Hand Pain Overview
Hand pain is most likely to result from some kind of physical injury to the hand. A fall onto an outstretched hand is a common example. However, other types of disease can also occur and cause hand pain. If the pain is more like a tingling or burning sensation, then various nerve disorders may be the cause (e.g. diabetic neuropathy).
