My wife had a hand cramp during pregnancy 8 months, but she was treated but has not recovered, I want to ask a topical medication that can be used.
Sense of cramps in the hands of women who are pregnant can occur by a variety of factors, one of the considerations is due to changes in body hormone levels during pregnancy which causes excessive body fluids, which is why pregnant women become swollen on their hands and feet. These conditions will cause pressure on the nerves so that eventually it causes a sense of cramps, tingling, and stiffness / difficulty moving the hands or feet, it can even cause pain, numbness. This situation also causes carpal tunnel syndrome. Some pregnant women also experience difficulty in doing activities with their hands such as buttoning a shirt or holding. Usually this complaint will disappear after the birth process, because the body's hormone levels will return to when they are not pregnant.
For this condition, patients can make efforts like the following to reduce the existing symptoms
Doing hand exercises, the way is by moving the wrist up and down 10x, and then proceed by clenching the hand 10x, and finally making the shape of the letter "O" by sticking all the thumbs by alternating Doing massage on the hands that cramp / pain Compress with cold water Take a short break (if symptoms occur while doing an activity, such as cleaning up the house or work) Consuming foods with high levels of vitamin B 6, such as spinach, potatoes, carrots, avocado, bread, and bananas However cramps in the hands pregnant women can also be caused by other factors, such as central nervous disorders, vitamin B deficiency, impaired electrolyte balance (body ions), etc. So it would be nice if your wife is examined by a gynecologist directly so that further studies can be done to ascertain what is the real condition experienced, and provide targeted treatment.
