Legs, Thighs, Arms And Back Suddenly Ache
Hello doctor, last night both of my legs were tingling and my thumbs were red and there was something stabbing. Now, the thighs, arms and back are very painful and weak. What illness am I experiencing this doc? thanks.
Hello Reinhard, Thank you for the question.
Do these symptoms occur on both hands and feet? Did you overdo physical activity or other symptoms? The symptoms that you experience can be caused by:
autoimmune diseases such as Guillain Barre's syndrome
excessive physical activity
high stress or depression
You can try handling independently at home first by:
get enough rest every day for 7-9 hours
consuming balanced nutritious food regularly
multiply at least 2-3 liters of water consumption every day
avoid excessive physical activity
manage stress well
Avoid consuming alcoholic drinks
warm compresses on the affected part or consume paracetamol if the pain is enough to bother you
If symptoms do not improve within the next 3 days and interfere with your daily activities, please consult with your nearest GP so that the doctor can check directly before giving the next treatment. However, if these symptoms become more severe that you have difficulty moving your limbs, there is no need to wait anymore, please visit the nearest emergency room immediately so that the doctor can examine you immediately and provide appropriate treatment.
Hope this information helps.
