Is this related to each other? nWhat is the solution? And how do you do it so you can recover again ..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Improper sleeping position, for example bending for too long causing excessive pressure on the hand area can clearly trigger pain. This pain can occur due to muscle cramps or injury to the surrounding tissue triggered by hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Under normal conditions, this pain will be conveyed to the brain so that your body will be conditioned to change the sleeping position so that there is no longer pressure on it. With this mechanism, the potential for further tissue damage can be prevented.
If there are no other factors affecting it, then the pain in your hand as you feel should improve a few moments after you correct your sleeping position. However, if the pain does not improve for up to 1 year, or even spreads to other parts of the body, such as the shoulder blades, head, and breasts, it is necessary to re-examine other possible causes.
Some other conditions that can also trigger pain in various parts of the body as you experience them include:
Fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain that appears with memory problems, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and mood disorders) Rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to autoimmune disorders, rheumatism) Peripheral neuropathy (peripheral nerve damage, for example due to diabetes) Osteoarthritis (arthritis and bones) Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals (for example calcium, potassium, vitamin B12) Viral or bacterial infections (for example chikungunya, leptospirosis, dengue fever, common cold) Hormonal changes, in women such as just before menstruation or approaching menopause, etc. the complaints that you feel can occur due to a variety of causes, can be related, but may not. You can have your condition checked directly to the doctor so that further treatment can be done, including by administering drugs, or also supporting tests, such as blood tests, X-rays, and so on.
Currently, you can first take pain relievers that can relieve your complaints, for example paracetamol. Get plenty of rest and compress the sore body area with warm water to make it feel more comfortable. Reduce tiring activities first and maintain your stamina by exercising a lot and diligently consuming foods rich in nutrients.
Hope this helps ..
