The Left Foot And Hand Feels Numb And Painful?
I want to ask my mother, her legs and hands feel numb and if she sleeps on her waist is rather painful, what kind of illness is this? If you go to the doctor what doctor? Thanks…
Hello Harun, thank you for asking.
Numbness or numbness in some parts of the body can be caused by disorders of the nerves or blood vessels. Numb can be felt on the right and left or just next. If your mother feels numbness only in her left hand and left leg, it is also possible that there is a disruption in the central innervation that regulates the sensation of feeling in the left side of the body. Some conditions that may be experienced by your mother are:
Inflammation or infection of the spinal cord. Pinching of the spinal cord. Ischemic stroke in the nerves that govern the left side of the body. Transient ischemic attack. Neuropathy due to diabetes. Peripheral vascular disease. In rare cases, there may be inflammation of the brain, or abnormal tissue growth in the brain or spine. Pain in the waist may be a sign of problems in the spine. There may be a pinched back nerve, or stiffness of the back and pelvic muscles, or calcification of the spinal structures can also occur.
You should invite your mother to consult with an internist or neurologist. The doctor may perform additional tests such as blood checks in the lab, X-rays, CT-scan, or MRI if deemed necessary. At this time you can try warm compresses on the affected part, or apply topical anti-pain, do simple stretches to reduce muscle stiffness and numbness, try consuming vitamin B complex for additional nutrition for nerves, and try your mother to sleep on a flat mattress and not struck.
Hopefully this answer can help you find a solution. Regards.
