The Hands And Feet Feel Sore Even If They Hit Lightly In Someone With A History Of Leprosy?
Sorry, I asked, I am a leprosy patient, thank God for 1 year I have taken leprosy medicine, and have stopped taking the medicine, but why, the whole body, the hands and feet, if you hit it a little, it hurts a little? Is this the effect of leprosy? Does the leg that feels numb after taking the drug not heal? Please explain?
Leprosy or leprosy is a disease caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium Leprae. This disease, apart from attacking the skin, also attacks the nervous system and muscles of the body. Leprosy treatment and length of treatment depend on the type of leprosy being experienced. Treatment is usually 6 months to 2 years depending on the condition. What needs to be understood is that the treatment of leprosy must not be interrupted; the medication must be taken every day as long as it is regular, and to stop the drug, an examination must be done first and a stop of treatment is determined by the doctor. If you are not disciplined while taking leprosy medication, it can make the bacteria that cause leprosy become stronger and resistant to further treatment, and if you do not get complete treatment there is a risk of complications such as harvester nerve damage, muscle weakness and progressive disability.
If the hands and feet are hit a little, they already hurt a lot, it can be due to enlarged nerves that occur in several parts of the body, making them more sensitive and painful, this can occur because of the effects of the previous leprosy. Numbness after taking medication has not disappeared due to nervous disorders. After the treatment of leprosy is complete, you may need additional treatment to treat nerve complaints or problems such as numbness or tingling, and you should first check with a neurologist, whether the numbness / numbness you experience is due to post-leprosy or other possible neurological disorders. Medication is needed to treat or repair damaged nerve function. But there are also in some cases the condition of numbness or neurological disorders is permanent, so to find out beforehand it must be done first. Some of the things you can look out for:
enough to drink water at least 2 L a day
keep the body and the environment clean
eat nutritious foods
get enough rest
