Is when the hand is rested then the complaint disappears? Complaints of fingers and hands feel numb and thick can be caused by carpal tunnel syndrome / CTS. CTS is a neurological disorder where the median nerve in the wrist is pinched, causing complaints in the form of thick hands, numbness, tingling, sometimes pain in the arm, weakened thumb, less sensitive touch, skin discoloration, swelling, and ability to become reduced so that daily work is interrupted. CTS complaints recur, especially if the hands are crushed or after an activity.
Examination to ensure CTS is by history, physical examination, and if necessary investigations with EMG, blood tests, and ultrasonography. Management of CTS is with physiotherapy, wrist enlargement, pain relief, corticosteroids, to surgery.
However, in addition to CTS, your complaint can also be caused by other conditions such as neurological disorders due to other diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disorders, arthritis, tenosynovitis, cervical radiculopathy, and psychological problems.
For the time being you can try doing the following tips first, ok:
Keep the wrist in a relaxed position
Reduce activities that require repetitive wrist movements
Alternately warm or cold compresses are more comfortable for you
Try not to crush your hands while sleeping
Lightly stretch and warm up for the hands
Do relaxation and manage stress well
Use comfortable clothes, avoid tight clothes
If with the tips above you still feel disturbed by complaints on your hands, I suggest that you consult a doctor directly so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause of your complaint and later the doctor can provide more optimal treatment for you, yes.
Hope it helps you,
