Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain, stiffness, and pain that is quite disturbing in the wrist and foot area may be caused by inflammation of the joints (arthritis). This condition can be a variety of triggers, for example:
Rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to autoimmune disorders)
Gouty arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to deposition of excess uric acid crystals)
Osteoarthritis (inflammation of joints and bones due to age-related degenerative processes)
Septic arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to infection)
Psoriatic arthritis (arthritis in psoriasis), and so on
In addition to arthritis, complaints on your wrists and feet may also occur due to viral or bacterial infections (such as chikungunya, dengue fever, leptospirosis, influenza), fibromyalgia, lack of neurotropic vitamins or minerals, injuries, bursitis, tendonitis, nerve disorders, and so.
If your condition has not improved so far, we recommend that you consult your doctor or a neurologist so that your condition can be properly evaluated for the cause, for example by physical examination, laboratory, X-ray, and so on. The handling that will be given later can vary depending on the underlying cause of your complaint.
For now, for the complaints to improve, you can take the drug Paracetamol first. Avoid taking other drugs, or applying anything to the wrists and feet that have complaints without doctor's advice. Rest your hands and feet first from excessive physical activity. Exercise regularly every day, especially stretching sports, like swimming, yoga, and so on. Do not forget, always wear comfortable clothes and footwear when doing activities so that complaints are reduced.
Hope this helps ...
