Overcoming Pain In The Buttocks That Spreads To The Feet Like Numbness?
hello doctor, my father always complained of pain in the buttocks .. pain to the feet .. sometimes even the legs like numbness (gringgingen) how to deal with it ,,
Creepy pain is pain that often occurs in nerve disorders. Nerve pain can spread in accordance with the dermatome (the area of the skin supplied with certain nerves) so that nerve disorders around the buttocks such as sciatica or nerve pinched nerve complaints can arise that radiates to the legs which can be accompanied by tingling, numbness or numbness.
Complaints of pervasive pain accompanied by numbness must be watched out because the condition can be burdensome. Therefore, I strongly recommend that you consult with a neurologist to evaluate how severe the complaint occurs and ascertain the cause of your complaint so that appropriate treatment steps can be taken.
The doctor will ask for a history of your complaints, perform physical examinations and investigations such as pelvic X-rays, record nerve nerve impulses (EMG) or MRI. Perform the examination if it is recommended by the doctor so that the doctor can determine the appropriate treatment steps for your condition.
If indeed the complaint is caused by disorders of the spine, the doctor can prescribe special nerve pain medications such as gabapentin, vitamin B12 and corticosteroid anti-inflammatory drugs. The doctor can also recommend physiotherapy or surgery procedures if needed. Discuss the treatments that can be done for your condition so that you can determine the treatment that suits your conditions and needs.
