Hello, Tiur Novelisah Sidauruk, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The symptoms that occur in your colleague can be interconnected or independent. Several conditions can cause painful and difficult legs to be stretched, for example strains / sprains, muscle spasms (muscle stiffness), deep vein thrombosis, etc. Other conditions such as dehydration, diabetes, impaired electrolyte balance, lack of certain nutrients (such as vitamin B, iron), to psychological stress can also cause symptoms such as leg pain, decreased concentration, and food feels bland. The cause of food feels bland in addition to the things that have been mentioned earlier can also be due to an infection, inflammation of the tongue, to nervous disorders.
To determine the cause, more detailed data regarding symptoms and history of the disease must be extracted. In addition, a direct physical examination is very important to do to see the existence of disorders / abnormalities objectively. Sometimes to support a physical examination, the doctor can carry out investigations to find the exact cause of the physical examination findings, for example x-rays, ultrasound, MRI, blood checks, etc.
Treatment depends on the cause. However, there are several things that can be done independently to improve the condition and prevent severity:
1. Evaluate eating, drinking, resting, and physical activity. Is it balanced or not. Meeting daily nutritional and fluid needs can prevent electrolyte imbalances, dehydration, and nutritional deficiencies.
2. Rest the painful part (legs), do not use to support a lot of weight and do activities that are too heavy such as running, walking / standing for too long, jumping around. Look for sports that do not overload the lower limbs, such as swimming.
3. To help relieve pain, can apply painkillers on the painful part or taking paracetamol.
4. Getting enough sleep, rest, and controlling stress can increase concentration.
5. If the symptoms do not improve or there are other symptoms such as: fever, swallowing pain / pain in the tongue, unintentional weight loss, weakness of limbs (hands / feet), you should immediately consult a doctor.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
