Numb Legs And Some Moving Up To The Neck Is That Dangerous?
Morning .. sorry I want to ask my mother often feels numb on the legs, but after feeling numb suddenly arrived at his feet like someone is moving forward to the neck, causing neck strain and dizziness. It happened about 2 minutes after it went away on its own. And sorry that doctor has always had a sudden attack like that. Is it because of the effects of my mother’s leg that had experienced obesity due to an accident about 6 years ago or because of another disease …? Thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Baal (numb) in the legs can indeed be related to a history of injuries that make the leg bones become crushed. Injuries that crush the bones usually appear with a intensity that is severe enough to potentially also cause damage to the nerves around it. This is what can make feet feel numb. Although it has received treatment, it is not uncommon for this numbness to last longer, even for years after injury.
Sensations such as something moving from the foot to the neck that your mother feels may still be related to nerve disorders after the injury. It could also be, this nerve disorder arises because of other factors, such as lack of neurotrophic vitamins and minerals, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, nerve clamps, strokes, and so on. This sensational disturbance can also appear accompanied by motor disturbances, namely weakness and even paralysis of the leg.
Your mother's neck that feels tense and dizzy may occur due to many factors, including hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, migraines, tension headaches, nerve pain, viral or bacterial infections, anemia, brain tumors, history of head injury, fatigue, hormonal fluctuations (for example when near menopause), dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), and so on. Neck tension and dizziness can occur due to neurological disorders that you experience, or may not.
Our advice, you consult your mother directly to the doctor or neurologist so that it is clear, what is the best treatment that needs to be done to resolve the complaint. Some examinations, such as x-rays, CT scans, laboratory tests, etc. may also be done by a doctor.
For now, your mother can first do the following steps:
Expand to rest Warm compresses on numb feet Do not overdo activities, especially use numb feet Do not also bend numb legs for too long Avoid using tight pants and footwear Avoid also using high heels Diligently exercising Eating nutritious foods, rich in vitamins B1, B6, B12, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other sources of nutrition. Don't consume alcohol. Stay away from stress. Hope it helps.
