Pain In The Neck, Feels Stiff That Spreads To The Arms In Diabetics?
Thank you for the question.
Calcification of bones (osteoporosis) often does not show any typical symptoms. This condition is often detected accidentally, for example when you are undergoing a radiological examination (such as an x-ray) to detect the cause of a particular complaint. Usually, calcification will make the bones break more easily, sometimes even without a serious injury trigger.
Pain in the neck, base of the arm, and right hand that you feel, if you are a diabetic, it is more likely caused by diabetic neuropathy. Indeed, diabetes that is not well controlled can cause nerve disorders that make pain appear in various parts of the body. In addition, this pain can also arise due to other triggers, such as malnutrition, multiple sclerosis, scoliosis, viral or bacterial infections, nerve clamps, tumors that suppress the spine, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, psychological disorders, and so on.
To be clear, you try to check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist. With your neurological examination, blood test, x-ray, CT scan, or other supporting tests, often the doctor is able to determine the best management of your complaint.
In the meantime, try to relieve your pain first with;
Take paracetamol medication. Do not carelessly massage painful areas. Warm compresses on your neck, upper arms and hands. Get plenty of rest. Regularly exercise to keep your neck, arms and arms muscles tense. Use a flat and not too soft sleeping pad. No smoking. Blood sugar control. You regularly and live the treatment of your diabetes according to doctor's advice. Hope it helps.
