The Cause Of The Right Hand Is Often Pins And Needles?
, my father’s right hand often felt pins and needles. Strangely, the tingling sensation appears even when not doing strenuous activities and will disappear when used for work. To get rid of the tingling sensation, usually my father took herbal medicine and medicine at the pharmacy, but the tingling sensation would reappear. Pdhl my father is not a smoker and an alcoholic. Please enlighten me! Thank you
Hello Sri Setyani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints that are often felt by your father can be caused by several conditions such as:
Complications from other diseases such as diabetes (diabetes)
Vitamin B12 deficiency
Imbalance of body hormones
Lack of certain body electrolytes
Side effects of certain drugs consumed for a long time (antibiotics, seizures)
Emphasis on the nerves that play a role in giving sensation to the hand
Because there are quite a lot of causes for the onset of the complaint and the complaint has been felt for a long time, then you should bring your father to check his complaint further to a neurologist. The doctor may suggest that your father undergo some additional tests to determine the cause of the complaint such as blood tests, blood sugar tests, body electrolyte tests or even CT head scans if necessary. After ascertaining what the cause is, then the doctor will further determine what therapy should be given to your mother.
For now, stop consuming these herbs because some herbs contain certain drugs that can cause harmful side effects to the body if consumed for long periods and with frequent frequency. Also note that the causes of tingling may have nothing to do at all with smokers and alcohol consumption due to various causes as above.
If the complaint is felt more severe or to cause partial paralysis of the body, immediately go to the hospital emergency room to get immediate help.
I hope this helps.
