The Palms And Feet Often Feel Hot At 35 Weeks Of Gestation?
Hello, I want to ask. I am now 35 weeks pregnant now, my hands and feet are often hot lately, why? Is that normal? Before I had checked with the midwife, but still there was no change after taking medication from the midwife.
Thank you for the question.
The sensation of heat that is felt in the palms of the hands and feet during pregnancy can naturally be caused by blood flow that is not smooth, for example due to stress when excessive physical activity, thus making nerve work disturbed. It could also be that the heat you feel in the palm of your hand and foot arises due to other factors, such as:
Nerve disorders, for example due to diabetic neuropathy, nerve nerves, multiple sclerosis, post herpetic neuralgia Vascular disorders, for example due to peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis, vasculitis Psychological disorders, for example due to excessive anxiety, Other somatoform disorders, such as metabolic disorders, impaired electrolyte balance, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, viral or bacterial infections, etc. Not all of the above conditions are dangerous. But if left untreated, of course this complaint could have disrupted your activities. Therefore, you should still check yourself to the doctor or obstetrician. Concerned, your condition occurs related to a serious illness, which risks disrupting the health of the fetus in your womb if not handled properly. If necessary, the doctor may refer you to a neurologist later.
In the meantime, what needs to be done:
Cold compresses on hands and feet that feel hot for more comfort Expand more Stay away from alcohol, cigarettes, especially drugs Improve personal hygiene Don't take any drugs Eat a variety of balanced nutritious foods, especially those containing rich vitamin B complex, calcium, magnesium, and potassium Do not wear jewelry, watches, clothing, and narrow footwear Hope it helps huh ..
