Overcoming Pain In The Hands Due To Electric Shock?
my name is ahmad, 2 days ago my friend experienced an electric shock in the hands of all parts … and until now he still feels pain like cramps in the shoulder to the elbow, how to handle it ?? so many questions from me, thank you.
Electric shock enters the body causing heat, which burns and destroys tissue. This burn can affect the skin and the inside of the body. In addition to heat, electric shock can also cause "body electricity" disorders that can interfere with innervation, including:
Causing irregular muscle contractions
The heart stops beating / heart attack
Disorders of the brain that cause seizures, disturbance of consciousness and so forth
The severity of an electric shock depends on the intensity / strength, the entrance into the body, the duration / length of electric shock, and resistance to this electric shock. In severe cases, direct death can occur.
Most of the cases of electric shock are symptoms of burns to the skin, although not all stings cause external injuries. High voltage electric shock can cause severe internal organ burns. If the muscle damage is very severe, severe swelling can occur until the blood vessels are depressed and can disrupt blood flow resulting in a very dangerous compartment syndrome.
A mild electric shock usually causes muscle aches and can trigger slight muscle contractions. Usually if nothing is life threatening, or the life threat has been resolved, treatment is based on symptoms that arise. At this time your friend should see a doctor. Doctors can provide treatment, such as pain medication or drugs to relax muscles. Supposedly if the sting is mild, symptoms will improve within a few days to several weeks.
