Limp Legs Accompanied By Weakness And Prolonged Hands After The Accident A Few Years Ago?
Hello, good evening. I am a 27 year old woman now. In 2007 I had an accident and my head hit the asphalt, the doctors said that there was blood in my brain clot because of the accident and my leg since 2007 until now limped and my left hand was rather weak. What I want to ask is what exactly is wrong? Was it during surgery or something else and why was my foot limping and the sole of the foot could not tread perfectly? Then is there any medication or medicine for my feet / hands? Then why is my tail bone so bent? Thank you in advance…
Thank you for the question.
An accident or impact on the head can cause head injury, depending on the mechanism of impact and the severity of the injury suffered. This head injury can disrupt structures in the head such as the brain and membranes that are rich in blood vessels, and this can cause blood vessels to rupture and cause bleeding inside the head, can be in the brain or the lining of the brain. This rupture of blood vessels will form clots and disrupt blood circulation in the brain which innervates certain organs or body parts, such as sensory functions, one of which is speech, or limb function. Surgery can help remove the blood clots, but does not guarantee that the disrupted circulatory function can return fully.
You should consult a medical rehabilitation specialist to deal with complaints that you have after the accident. The doctor will assess the function of your limbs and evaluate the degree of your inability to move your limbs, including on limp feet and soles that cannot tread perfectly. After that, the doctor will usually recommend you to do physiotherapy to practice walking slowly.
Here are the things you can do in the meantime:
Take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol, and medications to relax muscles that you can get with a doctor's prescription.
Train your feet to walk slowly.
Use shoes with thick soles or pads.
Avoid over-massaging the feet and soles, or visiting traditional masseurs who don't have professional certification.
Sleep at least 6-8 hours a day to be able to relax the muscles of the body.
Hope it is useful :)
