Feet Feels Heavy Like Unbalanced And Weak?
Good night DokJo this .. my father is an advanced age he complained that his legs felt heavy when walking like a klenger. What does it hurt? then herbal medicines that can reduce the weight of the legs what?
Thank you for the question.
Klenger is usually a layman's term used to describe the difficulty of regulating balance and weakness. Is this what your father's complaint means?
Feet that feels heavy, weak, and unbalanced in the elderly can have many possible triggers, such as:
Nerve disorders, for example due to strokes, brain tumors, nerve nerves, diabetic neuropathy Vascular disorders, for example due to deep vein thrombosis, peripheral arterial diseases Metabolic disorders, for example due to hypoglycemia, hypotension, anemia, malnutrition Other factors, for example arthritis, muscle cramps , after injury, psychological disorders, viral or bacterial infections, heart problems, etc. The above conditions can certainly be handled differently depending on the cause and severity. Our advice, given his advanced age, is safer if you consult him directly to a neurologist. Neurological examination, x-rays, CT scans, blood tests, or other supporting tests can be done by a doctor in order to give him the best management. At home, as a child, you can do first:
Let your father rest more, do not overactivate physical activity, especially outside the home --- in conditions like this, it is far better to stay quiet at home to avoid the risk of transmission of COVID-19 (a disease caused by a new Corona virus infection) Warm compresses or cold feet that have complaints Do not carelessly sort the feet that have complaints Do not just silence the feet of your father who has complaints, keep moving according to his joints, even if passively (assisted by others) Remind your parents not to smoke, discipline to exercise, live a healthy diet (reduce foods high in cholesterol and saturated fat, multiply fruits and vegetables), and don't stress too much. Hope it helps.
