Severe Headaches With Frequent Numb Hands, Is It Dangerous?
Hello doctor, I am 24 years old r nI just found out that I have a pinched srafting in the head, and lately my hands are often numb and my head hurts so badly, can that threaten my safety?
Hello Vibiolla, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
What do you mean by pinched nerve in the head is a pinched nerve in the cervical? Basically a pinched nerve can occur in the nervous system located in the mottle (spinal cord). Pinching on these nerves can occur for many reasons, but pinched nerve disease itself is a layman's term to describe disc herniation. The spinal disc is a network between vertebrae filled with fluid such as jelly in the middle that has the function to hold pressure on the spine, unite between one vertebra with another vertebra, and makes the spine have space although it is quite limited. When there is weakness in this tissue, fluid like jelly in it can protrude out of place and cause pressure on the nerves that run out of the spine. If the condition is severe enough, this protrusion can also compress the nerves that run inside the spinal canal.
Symptoms that can be found on nerve tongs in the cervical region include:
pain in the neck (which can spread to the head) numbness or tingling in the shoulders, hands, so that it can spread to the fingers can be found including:
impaired walking disorders of coordination of movement and disturbance of balance tingling, numbness, or weakness in the lower limbs (legs) This condition is likely not to cause death, but if left unchecked, this condition can interfere with your overall quality of life. For example you will experience neck pain and chronic headaches, interference with using your hands, or even interference with using your feet.
You should discuss your problem with a neurologist for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
