Hands And Feet That Often Feel Pins And Needles Tingling?
Thank you for the question.
Hands and feet are often tingling, like being pricked, cramps can also refer to neurological disorders, or in the medical realm called neuropathy. However, there are many causes of this neuropathy, ranging from certain viral or bacterial infections (such as herpes, Lyme disease, leprosy, diphtheria, HIV, hepatitis B, Epstein-Barr), post-injury, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, metabolic disorders, tumors which suppresses nerves, paraneoplastic syndromes, disorders of the spinal cord, to disorders of the kidneys, liver, thyroid gland, and connective tissue. Lack of certain nutrients (especially vitamins B, E, and niacin), side effects of drugs (especially chemotherapy), poisoning (especially lead and mercury), excessive alcohol consumption, to a history of nerve damage can also trigger neuropathy. Finally, it is not uncommon that the causes of neuropathy cannot be clearly identified (idiopathic).
Because there are so many causes of neurological disorders that can cause complaints like yours, the diagnosis of your complaint is not enough to be made just by an online consultation like this. Sometimes, psychological disorders, such as when you are anxious, panicked, afraid, or excessive stress can also make the body feel pins and needles. So, it is necessary to do a thorough neurological examination, monitoring vital signs, other health status checks, or also assisted by investigations, such as blood tests, liver and kidney function tests, x-rays, CT scans, electromyography, MRI, and so on in several conditions. For that, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist nearby ..
In the meantime, here are our suggestions for you:
Eat more fruits, vegetables, protein, and whole grains that are rich in nutrients for nerves
Don't smoke, stay away from alcohol
Regularly exercising, especially sports to increase muscle strength and to relax tense muscles and nerves, for example lifting weights, yoga, tai chi, swimming, floor gymnastics, jogging, cycling
Drink more water
Control your stress well
Wear loose clothing and comfortable footwear during your activities
Warm compresses on your body that are often pins and needles, such as being stabbed, and cramping, don't be carelessly sorted
Do not take any medicine without doctor's advice
