Hello, I am 17 years old, my arms are big, but the wrists are getting smaller and smaller, that’s why

1 Answer:

Hello Melani, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.

Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.

The symptoms you mentioned are not very clear leading to a certain condition or disease. The size of the wrist or ankle is indeed smaller than the size of the upper body so it can be normal. You can compare between right and left wrists. If there is a very striking difference you may experience muscle atrophy. Atrophy is a condition where there is a decrease in muscle mass.

This can be caused by two things, namely atrophy caused by muscle not being used like paralysis, people with little activity, etc. and neurogenic atrophy / based on certain diseases such as polio, spinal cord injury, etc.

You should check with your doctor directly to ensure this. Right now what you can do is:

 Get enough rest and maintain your diet. Exercise regularly. Drink 2L per day of water. That's all my answer, thank you :)
