Hands Can’t Clench?
In the afternoon I want to ask, my father’s hands can’t make fists and he says it still hurts so much that even holding a spoon he says it’s hard … are symptoms like this dangerous or will it gradually heal? yesterday treated 170 high blood pressure and 222 cholesterol
Hello Nissa, Thank you for the question.
Has your father checked himself to determine the cause? Complaints about being difficult to clench can be caused by:
osteoarthritis injury gout rheumatoid arthritis To find out whether this condition is a condition that can be dangerous, can be cured, or can be treated with drugs, of course your father must first know what the cause is by seeing a doctor. Encourage your father to consult a doctor immediately, especially if this complaint has lasted a long time and disrupt your father's daily activities. The doctor needs to do a brief interview to find out your father's symptoms, examine your father, and perform other examinations such as blood tests and X-rays. From this examination can only be known the cause and proper treatment can be given by a doctor. In the meantime, your father may try to do warm or cold compresses to help relieve pain in the joints of his hands. Your father can also take over-the-counter pain relievers at pharmacies such as paracetamol in accordance with the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
Someone said to have high blood pressure / hypertension if the blood pressure is 130/80 mmHg or more. If indeed your father has hypertension, your father is strongly recommended to consult with a doctor for further treatment because treatment for hypertension requires supervision from a doctor. The doctor will usually advise your father to check himself regularly to monitor your father's symptoms and for treatment. Treatment that will be given by a doctor will be adjusted to your father's condition and the body's response to treatment. Likewise with high cholesterol levels, the treatment of each person is not the same and requires further doctor supervision so that cholesterol levels can be controlled properly.
Some suggestions your father can make are:
avoid consumption of foods high in salt and sugar multiply consumption of vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, limit consumption of red meat and foods containing saturated fat exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes every day lose weight if you have excess body weight avoid smoking avoid the habit of consuming alcoholic beverages manage stress well If symptoms of severe headaches, weakness of the limbs, face look asymmetrical, confusion, fainting, chest pain, shortness of breath, please immediately bring your father to the nearest emergency room to get treatment immediately.
I hope this helps.
