, tingling symptoms of a mild stroke?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Not always tingling occurs due to stroke. Tingling (paresthesia) most often occurs due to blood flow that is not smooth to a certain body part. For example, if you sit cross-legged for too long, then your lower legs will easily experience tingling. If you use a watch that is too narrow, your hands can also experience tingling. This tingling appears due to a lack of oxygen and nutrients perfusion to the nerve cells in the stressed body part. Once the emphasis is removed, the tingling will generally improve on its own.
In addition, tingling can also appear due to other causes, such as dehydration, pinched nerves, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals, diabetes, brain tumors, hormonal changes (in women, for example during pregnancy), poisoning (for example due to mercury, arsenic, lead), multiple sclerosis, alcohol intoxication, impaired kidney function, liver, thyroid gland, and so on.
Tingling that occurs due to stroke occurs due to rupture or blockage of blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to brain cells. Not only tingling, sufferers can also experience muscle weakness, headache, difficulty speaking, chewing food, asymmetrical body shape right and left, vomiting, decreased consciousness, and so on.
Confirming the cause of the tingling needs to be done through a thorough evaluation by a doctor or assisted also with supporting tests, for example laboratory, X-ray, CT scan, MRI, and so on. If the tingling feels very frequent, you may need to go to a neurologist to get further treatment.
Giving specific drugs to treat tingling should be discussed directly by the examining doctor. However, at home, you can do some of the following efforts to relieve the symptoms of tingling:
Avoid pressing body parts that often tingle, including by not using clothes, footwear, or jewelry that are too tight. Exercise regularly. Eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially those rich in vitamin B complex. Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol. Drink enough. Do your daily activities. with the right posture Compress the tingling body area with warm water Hope it helps ya ..
