Hello, I am 15 years old. So I slept for about half an hour in a sitting position with my arms stretched out on the table as a pillow. when I wake up my hand is tingling like a prick, then a few moments later the prick subsides but my hand feels warm, after that I realized my fingers were moving by themselves, my thumb seemed to be pulled by the rivet and all my fingertips moved by themselves, up to a few minutes of being very strong then weakens until it disappears. Previously, I also hit my elbow and felt like I was electrocuted, then when the shock started to disappear, my hands became hot, but only my thumb and index finger, when other people touched them, they felt hotter than the rest of my hand. are the two events related? what is the danger?

Hi aisyalifiap,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Excessive pressure on the hands, for example, when you sleep on your hands for too long can cause the blood flow in the hands and surrounding tissues to become less smooth. This condition can lead to the accumulation of oxygen-poor and metabolite-rich blood in the area of ​​your hands. As a result, the function of the nerves, muscles and other components in the hands can be impaired. This is what causes your hands to feel warm, red, tingling, numb, and also twitching (repeated uncontrolled contractions of the hand muscles). In some more severe conditions, the hand may become swollen, numb and weak when moved.


The same thing happens when your body experiences a strong enough impact. This condition can cause temporary nerve excitation that causes sensations such as electric shock, pain, or other discomfort. If there are no other complicating conditions, then this complaint should only be temporary and will get better by itself after the impact and pressure on the organ experiencing the complaint is removed.


What needs to be your concern is, if your complaint persists for a long time even though your hand is no longer crushed or hit. This condition may indicate that you are deficient in certain vitamins or minerals that are important in nourishing nerves (for example, vitamin B complex, magnesium, potassium, and calcium), experiencing neurological disorders (for example due to diabetes, multiple sclerosis, pinched nerves, stroke, carpal tunnel syndrome). ), experiencing blood vessel disorders (for example due to atherosclerosis, vasculitis, varicose veins), rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints), and so on. If this is the kind of condition you are experiencing, you should check your complaint directly with a doctor or neurologist. With a thorough neurological examination, or assisted by supporting examinations, such as X-rays, electromyography, CT scans, laboratory tests, and so on, generally doctors can determine the right diagnosis as well as the best treatment for your complaints.


In the meantime, you can first do the following:

Make it a habit not to overly crush any part of your body, including your hands, either while sleeping or doing other activities
Consume healthy and nutritionally balanced foods rich in nutrients to support nerve cell health
Expand to eat more vegetables and fruits that are rich in antioxidants, limit foods that contain cholesterol, trans fats and high saturated fats
Maintain ideal body weight
Live a healthy lifestyle, exercise regularly, sleep regularly, limit excessive caffeine
Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol
Avoid wearing clothes and jewelry that are too narrow, too tight

Hope it helps ..
