My Right Shoulder Is Swollen?
Greetings … I want to ask. For several years now, my right shoulder will swell when massaged or pressed, it doesn’t feel like it’s numb. And I often feel achy in the right hand. I also often get phlegm from the mouth or catch cold easily. Actually why should I shoulder this. Thanks in advance
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swelling and numbness in the right shoulder accompanied by aches in the hand may occur due to injury. This injury can occur when you exercise, have an accident, or also normal physical activity but with an un ergonomic body posture. Not only swelling, the area that has been injured can also appear reddish to the wound. In addition, if this injury causes pins or injuries to the nerves around it, then there can be pain, aches, tingling, to numbness as you experience.
In addition to injuries, complaints on your shoulders and right hand may also be triggered by rheumatoid arthritis, gout arthritis, benign or malignant tumors, fibromyalgia, infections, nerve disorders, and so on.
Most likely, the complaint on your shoulders and hands is not directly related to your condition that is easy to drool and runny nose. It could be, more often you salivate and runny nose occurs due to allergic reactions, irritation, to infections of the respiratory tract, digestion, teeth and mouth, or other organ systems.
Our advice, you check yourself directly to the doctor so that you evaluate more deeply your condition. It could also, the doctor will direct you to undergo further tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, MRI, laboratory, and so on. Or, maybe you will be referred to the right specialist, for example, a neurologist or another specialist.
At this time, try doing it first:
Compress shoulders and hands that experience complaints with warm water, do not massage or massage carelessly
Regularly exercise every day
Don't use clothes that are too tight
Do not over-exertion with the shoulders and hands that experience complaints
Avoid excessive emphasis on the painful side of the body
Avoid substances that often trigger allergies
Always live a healthy lifestyle
Expand to eat foods that are rich in vitamins B1, B6, B12, calcium, potassium, and magnesium which are good for maintaining nerve cells, muscles, and supporting tissues.
Hope this helps ...
