How To Deal With Numbness In The Feet And Hands?
Hello, I had a mild stroke. Initially, I had a headache until some of my legs and hands all felt numb. Couldn’t the doctor eliminate it?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, when exactly the symptoms of headaches accompanied by numbness in the feet and hands do you feel? Have you checked your doctor and have you been diagnosed with a stroke?
Basically a stroke called a mild stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack) is the occurrence of ischemia (lack of oxygen) in brain cells that does not cause death and permanent damage to brain cells. Because there is no permanent damage to brain cells, the symptoms that occur when an attack occurs (such as weakness in some parts of the body or numbness in some parts of the body) also occur only temporarily. If these symptoms persist, the possibility that you experience is not a mild stroke but a real stroke, meaning that there has been death and damage to brain cells that are permanent even though it may only be in a small part of the brain.
Both strokes and minor strokes should get an examination and treatment immediately because both are potentially dangerous conditions and it is not impossible to repeat. Some people who have had a mild stroke (TIA) will have a stroke within 1 year if no proper precautions are taken.
You should immediately conduct an examination to a neurologist for further evaluation. If indeed you have had a stroke (indeed there has been death and damage to your brain cells), chances are that your symptoms will not be able to completely disappear. The evaluation will focus on finding the risk factors for the stroke and treatment for these risk factors to prevent recurring strokes. If what happens is TIA, then the possibility of the symptoms that you experience will disappear by itself. However, the risk factors that cause TIA must still be sought and managed so that you do not experience repeated TIA attacks or even stroke in the future.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
