How Do You Deal With Numb Right Shin?
Good night. I am a 21 year old female. Every night the shin in the right leg is always uncomfortable like numbness, is it stiatica or restless leg syndrome? Because my lower back, buttocks, thighs to my calves also like pain. Following that my shins went numb. But even though sometimes it doesn’t feel. Lower back pain. Almost every night my legs go numb. Why is that? Then how to treat it. I am not comfortable making it difficult to sleep at night. Thank you 🙏😊
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Sciatica is a disease condition characterized by pain that occurs along the nerves of the same name, sciatic, located in the pelvis. People with this disease usually feel the main symptoms of pain, but there can also be a feeling of heat, shock, tingling, muscle weakness and numbness or numbness in the area of the back, buttocks and legs.
While restless legs syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by uncomfortable sensations, such as throbbing, pain due to being drawn, amused, and as a result the patient wants to always move his feet.
In your case, when speaking between the two possibilities above, what is more likely is sciatica. But you also need to know that there are other possibilities that can cause this, such as peripheral nerve disorders, pinched nerves, muscle cramps, nerve infections, muscle injuries, or certain skin disorders. So our advice is that you should check yourself with a neurologist to better know the condition more clearly, because some of the conditions above cannot be treated without the help of a doctor. By checking your condition directly, the examination carried out on you can be more complete and the handling can be more precise.
Meanwhile, you can try self-medication at home by compressing the warm or cold parts of your feet and taking over-the-counter painkillers by reading the rules of use listed. You should also eat foods that are good for nerves and are rich in B vitamins such as eggs, milk, salmon, beef, peas and cheese. So, hopefully answering your question.
