The Palms Are Sore, Numb And The Fingers Are Difficult To Bend After Giving Birth
, my palm hurts like numbness and fingers u0026sup2; difficult to bend or to grasp, especially if after waking up, this happens after I give birth I ask, what is this disease? and what is the cure, because it is very annoying when I hold something sometimes like shocked I gave birth by cesar in February yesterday
Thank you for the question.
Pain, shock, and numbness in the palm of the hand so that it is difficult to bend the fingers may indicate interference with bones, joints, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, and other components around your hands and fingers, for example due to:
Rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to autoimmune disorders)
Carpal tunnel syndrome (inflammation of nerve fibers in the wrist)
Gouty arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to a buildup of uric acid crystals)
Other factors, such as tendinitis, ligament injury, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, pinched ulnar nerve, viral or bacterial infections, diabetic neuropathy, muscle cramps, etc.
It could also be that your complaint occurs due to lack of nutrition, disorders in the brain or spinal cord, metabolic disorders, psychological disorders, injury effects, and so on. Your history of having had a cesarean birth may be related to this complaint, or may not.
In order to improve, we recommend that you do not rush to see a doctor. Concerned, being rushed to check up when there are no major complaints can actually increase your risk of experiencing dangerous diseases, including COVID-19 which is currently endemic. It will be safer, if you do it first:
Apply the pain relief cream and warm compresses of the hands to your uncomfortable fingers
Be diligent in exercising to stretch the fingers and hands that are experiencing complaints
Limit first excessive physical activity that involves stretching of the hands and fingers experiencing complaints
Rest and drink more water
Also make sure you are diligent in consuming foods that are rich in vitamin B complex, calcium, magnesium, and potassium
Do not smoke or consume alcohol
Don't think too much
Conversely, if the steps above still can not alleviate your complaints, or if there are weakness / paralysis of the motion, numbness and pain that is severe and prolonged, and this condition is very disturbing your daily activities, it is better to check yourself directly to the doctor or the nearest neurologist to be given the right treatment huh ..
I hope this helps.
