  • Should I hire remote software developers from Turing.com?

    It is so hard to hire strong engineers for my company in San Francisco.

    I have that too in my middle finger, and it’s driving me nuts. I use a lighted 10X magnifier and can’t see any redness or break in the skin. The pain is exquisite when I bend my finger or even lightly touch or stroke the skin but not if I touch more firmly. At first I thought it might be gout due to the near-keto diet my doctor put me on, but there’s no swelling or redness (gout would cause tophi). I haven’t been anwhere near fiberglass, silica or broken glass. My money’s on some kind of a neuropathy, as it’s happened before (very occasionally) in other fingers & big toes—and I’m occasionally getting tingling in my extremities. Tried the epsom-salt soak and Scotch tape thing 3X—no luck.

    It may actually be a splinter or some other small bit of matter that your skin healed over. If you can’t find it or get it out, I have found that eventually the body will reject or encapsulate it on its own. Either it works it’s way to the surface (like most splinters) or is sealed off (like a piece of pencil lead that once broke off in my hand.). Or it could be an injury that you weren’t even aware of causing a bit of neuropathy. Paper cuts are minuscule and hurt like the dickens too. Either way, give it some time to heal or reveal itself.

    Should I take collagen or is it too late for me?

    Yes! It’s never too late. Collagen has many benefits for all ages. We found 2022’s best collagen brands.

    I had that happen once. I made the pain worse when I ran a finger over the area so I figured it had to be a splinter. I used a flashlight and turned my finger slowly until I could see a slender hair-like projection. I think I got it out with tweezers, but it was so long ago. It was a splinter of glass or maybe fiberglass. If it persists, you might want to see your doctor. Sometimes our bodies cause pain in a different spot from the injury. (I get a pain in my chest area which is from a pinched nerve in my spine.)

    This is strange, because last week I felt like I had a splinter in one of my fingers. A small splinter, more like a cactus sticker. I looked at it, washed, still the feeling persisted for several days. I think what it was was just a very tiny crack in my skin, and needed to be moisturized. So I did that, and it went away.

    Have you ever googled yourself? Do a “deep search” instead.

    This innovative search engine reveals so much. Type in your name, wait 107 seconds, brace yourself.

    It could be deeper than you think or it might be clear glass you cannot see. I had a splinter of glass in the same foot twice. I went to the ER and sat for 6 hours and they just referred me to a surgeon. I then went to my podiatrist and he removed it. The second I skipped the ER. If it is wood it will eventually make it to the surface but in the meantime it might get infected. See your family doctor. The advice might just be to soak it in hot water with epson salts or he/she might want an xray.

    It can be an irritation in your nervous system, or deficiency in vitamin B12. It can also mean poor blood supply or there are a variety of possible causes:

    • Carpal Tunnel syndrome;

    • Multiple sclerosis;

    • Vitamin deficiencies;

    • Metabolic disorders (e.g. diabetes);

    • Poisoning (heavy metals);

    • Infections;

    So these answers kind of sound a little scary…lol. I suggest showing a medical practician, and removing whatever is underneath the skin. You most probably got a splinter, didn’t take care of it, and now its deep inside, causing either a small cyst or zapping, irritated pain.

    Ever worked with or touched fiberglass?

    I’ve had splinters from that stuff in my ass for a week after crawling around an aircraft cargo bay…

    Sometimes a splinter can be embedded underneath the skin and you can’t see it, so the best thing to do is go to a doctor and get checked. If it’s not a splinter, it could be something else that can be treated.
