The Cause Of The Body Feels Stiff And Staggered?
I want to ask, I was injured during a sport at school, I checked into the hospital at the MRI and it turns out that my nerves are stiff until now there has been no change, it’s been almost 2 years growing up, I feel very stiff when I want to do activities and my body feels uncomfortable like I stagger, I beg you for the solution, how have I done various ways for sports and swimming, even I have gone to alternatives but there is still no change, thank you
Hello, Tia Yustika, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
The body feels stiff and unsteady can be caused by several conditions:
1. Musculoskeletal disorders, for example muscle tension (caused by lack of stretching), muscle strain (overstretching of the muscles due to injury/pulling that is too strong), or myalgia (muscle pain) due to viral or bacterial infection or injury
2. Joint disorders, such as arthritis (inflammation of the joints) due to gout, autoimmune diseases, or aging
3. Innervation disorders, such as inflammation, tumor/lump, injury, or pinching of certain nerves
4. Psychological causes such as fibromyalgia
5. Lack of fluids or lack of electrolytes
To determine the cause, in-depth consultation with a doctor, physical examination, and supporting examinations such as a complete blood test, CT scan or MRI is needed. If you have gone to the doctor, you should keep regular check-ups with the doctor and do not stop medication and therapy from the doctor. With regular check-ups with the doctor, your condition can be monitored and given treatment according to your condition.
Here are some things you can do to help relieve the body stiffness you've been feeling for a long time:
1. Control your stress by doing hobbies or activities you enjoy, meditating/praying, and having recreation
2. 5 for its minimum exercise, by not forgetting to warm up before exercising and do cooling down after exercise. Ask your doctor about what exercise is suitable for your condition.
3. Sufficient rest and sleep.
4. Sufficient daily fluid and electrolyte requirements. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day (adjusted to activity), consume electrolyte drinks, and meet daily nutritional needs.
5. Take a warm bath.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
