As a result of this condition, cells around the area can experience hypoxia (lack of oxygen), including nerve cells that are sensitive to various sensations. This condition, can cause numbness (numbness), tingling, tingling, itching, heat, pain, and various other sensational disorders. If there are no other complications, this complaint should only be temporary and will improve by itself without the need for special handling.
