Hand Cramps, Wounds Are Not Painful, Vision Is Unclear And Tingling Feet?
Hello doctor Recently my mother’s hands like cramps and if the wound does not feel like your eyesight is a bit unclear and your legs are tingling, what symptoms are these?
Hello Tera Syafitri,
Tingling sensation in the hands and feet (peripheral neuropathy) can arise due to peripheral nerve damage that can be caused by various diseases including:
Diabetes mellitus Autoimmune diseases: Guillain Barre syndrome, demyelinating polyneuropathy, viral or bacterial infections Presence of tumors that suppress nerves Kidney disorders, liver disorders Patients who are alcohol dependent Trauma that damages peripheral nerves Vitamin deficiency, especially vitamin B If your mother is middle aged, there is good screening for diabetes mellitus. Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease caused by disruption of the production of the hormone insulin by the pancreas. The result is a disruption in the regulation and utilization of blood glucose by the body's cells. Diabetes mellitus is characterized by an increase in blood sugar levels and is usually accompanied by classic symptoms namely:
Polyuria: frequent urination Polydipsia: frequent drinking or excessive thirst despite drinking lots of Polyphagia: frequent eating due to continuous hunger despite eating a lot. Patients with diabetes mellitus also suffer from disorders of the vascular (blood vessels) and nerves. Accompanying symptoms that can be experienced by patients with diabetes mellitus are:
Wounds that are difficult to heal. Tingling sensation in the hands. Numbness, reduced pain. For example the patient is not aware of a leg pierced nail Blurred vision due to interference on the retina of the eye Easily exposed to infection, for example if the woman is a fungus in the genitals (vaginal candidiasis) Weight loss Decreased consciousness when sugar levels suddenly become very low or become very high Diagnosis of diabetes mellitus is obtained based on the results of blood tests - ie blood glucose levels during, fasting, or 2 hours after eating. This diagnosis is determined by the doctor and also considers the clinical symptoms of the patient.
Management of diabetes mellitus is long-term and comprehensive, including changes in diet (type of food), physical activity and regular exercise, healthy lifestyle, administration of drugs to lower blood sugar, and regular control of blood sugar in health facilities.
Most patients with diabetes mellitus do not feel any symptoms so do not come see a doctor and do not know that he has diabetes mellitus. Patients present when complications occur, such as blindness due to diabetic retinopathy, impotence, large sores on the feet to rot, and so on. Early detection of diabetes mellitus and treatment interventions given early can slow a person to experience these complications.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
