The Cause Of Numbness And Pain From The Thumb, Armpit, Spread To The Right Chest
Good evening, permission to ask. 2 days ago my right palm at the bottom of my thumb was numb. After a while the numb is gone. When it’s been a few hours the bottom of my right armpit hurts, there’s no lump. Then now I feel pain in the right side of my chest, at the top of the distance about 5 fingers from the armpit. What do you think the symptoms are? Are the symptoms of severe illness or just ordinary pain? And is that a symptom of breast or lymph node cancer? Thank you for your time.
Thank you for the question.
Uncomfortable sensations, namely numbness and pain that feels starting from around the thumb, armpit, then radiating to the right chest can be caused by several factors, for example:
Nerve disorders, such as nerve pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetic neuropathy Joint disorders, such as gout arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis Viral or bacterial infections, such as cellulitis, chikungunya, shingles, shingles, lymphadenitis also breast cancer) Other factors, such as post-injury, malnutrition, fibromyalgia, tendinitis, muscle cramps, psychological disorders, gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, metabolic disorders, etc. If the pain and numbness can still be dealt with by the following efforts, we suggest you do not always worry and do not also rush to see a doctor so that your risk of contracting the disease (including COVID-19) can be minimized. The initial steps that can be done are:
Compress warm areas that are painful or numb, do not carelessly sorted or sounded More rest and regularly also exercise every day Eat more regularly, multiply first eat foods rich in vitamins B1, B6, B12, calcium, potassium, and magnesium Drink at least 2 water liters a day Do not over-drink caffeinated drinks, also limit consumption of foods containing saturated fat and cholesterol Stay away from cigarettes Wear loose and comfortable clothing Not too much of your mind can still consult a doctor or neurologist if you feel a complaint is very annoying, does not improve with the steps above, or if it appears limp / paralyzed in the locomotor, high fever for more than 3 days, swelling, and other severe complaints.
Hope this helps ...
