Pain In The Fingers Almost 2 Months?
p dir = "ltr"> Hello!
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Stiff fingers can be caused by a variety of causes, including disorders of the joints such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, and can also be caused by disorders of the nerves, such as neglect of the brachial nerve branches, namely the medial nerve (nerve supplying the thumb, index finger, middle, and a portion of the ring finger) and the ulnar nerve (supplying the ring finger and pinkie), carpal tunel syndrome, to diabetic neuropathy (nerve disorders due to high blood sugar levels).
In joint disorders, usually the patient will complain of joint stiffness, which is accompanied by pain when the finger joint is moved or when stationary is inactive. In addition, signs of inflammation will generally also appear such as swelling and redness of the affected finger.
Meanwhile, if a nerve disorder is suspected, complaints such as tingling, numbness, pain to weakness in the hands are often more complained. Symptoms of Carpal Tunel Syndrome can also spread and be felt to the elbow or shoulder area.
To find out for sure, whether your mother's complaint is a disorder of the joints or innervation, or other causes, it is advisable to check directly with the nearest doctor or the neurologist for a more complete evaluation. Sensory and motor tests, examination of muscle strength, and supporting examinations such as blood laboratories, x-rays, electromyography may be needed to look for more specific causes.
Taking pain relievers, stretching, avoiding strenuous activities on the fingers is highly recommended so that complaints do not become more burdensome.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully helps
