Pain In The Back To The Hands And Feet Feels Numb?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain and numbness that starts from the back, to the hands and feet may indicate a disorder of the peripheral nerves (nerve fibers outside the brain and spinal cord), for example due to autoimmune disorders, diabetes, infections, tumors, congenital abnormalities, bone marrow disorders rear, alcoholism, side effects of drugs, poisoning (such as heavy metals or industrial chemicals), vitamin deficiencies (eg vitamins B and E), injuries, or other diseases (such as kidney disorders, liver disorders, connective tissue disorders, and hypothyroidism). In the medical realm, this peripheral nerve disorder is called peripheral neuropathy. In addition to pain and numbness, peripheral neuropathy can also affect the work of the central nervous system, resulting in changes in blood pressure (dizziness), heart rate (palpitations), digestive function, and urination.
Various other conditions, for example nerve pinching, multiple sclerosis, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, viral or bacterial infections, etc. are also prone to cause pain and numbness like you are experiencing at the moment.
To be clear, it is better for you to check yourself directly to the doctor or the nearest neurologist. Laboratory examinations, X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, etc. may be done by a doctor in order to be able to detect the cause of your complaint, and at the same time determine the best management, whether enough with drugs, or other invasive measures such as surgery.
At this time, what you should do:
Warm compresses on the back, hands, and feet that are sore and numb
Do not carelessly massage or give any treatment to areas of pain and numbness without first seeing a doctor
Wear comfortable clothes
Eat a variety of healthy and nutritious foods, especially those that are rich in vitamin B complex and vitamin E (for example meat, fish, eggs, fortified cereals)
Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol
Do not carelessly take any medicine if not prescribed directly by a doctor
Avoid activities that are prone to causing nerve injury, for example doing repetitive movements or activities with body posture that is not ergonomic
Take paracetamol to help temporarily relieve pain
Hope this helps ...
