Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what is the reason that causes you to repeatedly hit your hand in bed? Are you experiencing mental stress because of something?
Depending on the severity of the impact, the pain in your hand that you are feeling right now can be a serious condition or not. This blow can cause various damage to your hands, for example just muscle aches or bruises, but can also cause more severe tissue damage, for example broken or fractured bones, joint dislocations, ligament injuries, infections, nerve nerves, etc. . These conditions may be the cause of your pain.
Aside from the history of the impact, pain in your hands can also occur due to gouty arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, infection of the tissues around the hands, peripheral neuropathy, metabolic disorders, psychological disorders, and so on. If the act of banging your hand is done because of mental stress due to a particular trigger, it could be, psychological disorders due to this also aggravate your pain and hinder healing.
Even though you are abroad, we still recommend that you consult your condition directly to the nearest doctor or neurologist. Through this examination, then your condition can be identified correctly, namely by physical examination, or support, such as x-rays, CT scans, and so on. If your complaint is suspected to be related to certain psychiatric disorders (self harm disorder), you might also be directed to a psychiatrist.
In the meantime, do not just carelessly massage, massage, pull, or give drugs carelessly on your painful hands. Just do a few suggestions as follows:
Warm or cold compresses on painful hands (choose which makes you most comfortable)
Apply pain relief cream if necessary
Don't do excessive activities using painful hands, for example to write, type, hold gadgets, lift heavy objects, or wash clothes
Be diligent in sports to stretch your arms, for example swimming, yoga, or floor gymnastics
Manage your stress and emotions well
No more stomping your hands or other parts of your body on any object
Hope this helps ...
