The Left Side Of The Body Is Immovable?
My mother had experienced pain in the left side of the body, starting from the tips of the hair to the tips of the nails, she couldn’t move until it had been 2 weeks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
The condition in the mother that you are complaining about can be caused by disorders of the nerves, muscles, or bones in that area, for example:
Problems with the brain, such as stroke, brain tumor
One-sided headache with one-sided weakness (hemiplegic migraine)
Pinched nerve: usually the pain feels hot and like an electric shock
Myalgia: inflammation of the muscles that can be caused by fatigue, wrong body position, wrong sleeping position so that the body is crushed and causes pain
Uric acid or high cholesterol
Injury to a muscle, bone, or joint
Seeing your exposure where this complaint was accompanied by immobile and had been going on for two weeks, it is feared that the cause of your mother's condition is a problem in the brain, although it can also be due to other causes.
For that, do not delay further consultation regarding your mother's condition to a neurologist for immediate examination. The doctor will explore further the course of the disease and will perform a detailed and nerve function examination to determine the exact condition of the complaint. If necessary, the doctor will perform an X-ray, CT scan, uric acid level examination, bone density examination, or MRI examination to see soft tissue such as muscles or ligaments, or refer your mother to an orthopedist for further tracking. And after that, your mother will be treated according to the underlying condition.
Things that can be done to alleviate the symptoms and prevent their worsening are:
Do regular check-ups for blood pressure, uric acid, cholesterol, blood sugar so that they can be controlled properly if there is an increase
Management of stress well
Limit strenuous physical activity
Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours a day. Avoid sleeping on your side, try on your back
Reduce bending and lifting heavy weights
If the pain does not improve, your mother can take over-the-counter pain medications such as paracetamol.
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful :)
