getting a warm sensation in the back of just my right hand?

User Profile
Over the last three days I've been getting a warm sensation in the back of just my right hand. I wouldn't say it's burning because it doesn't hurt, just warm, but not warm to the touch. It comes and goes a few times a day and only last for maybe 2 minutes at a time. I am right handed and haven't started any new medications. I currently take Lexapro and Sprintec (Birth Control)and a few weeks ago stopped taking my Clonazepam.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the symptoms that you describe without thorough examination and further evaluation. The symptoms could be suggestive of paresthesia, and you should consider visiting your doctor/healthcare provider at the earliest for getting a thorough evaluation done to look for the possible underlying causes. If required, a neurologist opinion can also be helpful. Further treatment options would be started to help you control the symptoms in correlation with your examination findings and evaluation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
