Hello Satria, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Previously need to be clarified again about the problem you are experiencing whether there are complaints of pain, weakness of the muscles, or do you have a history of other diseases?
Some of the causes of your complaint include:
Inflammation in the joints
Vitamin B deficiency
Cubital tunnel syndrome / ulnar neuropathy (suppression of the ulnar nerve in the elbow)
Other nerve disorders
Complaints can be caused by disruption in nerve function, can be due to injury, falls, accidents, the aging process, or because of other diseases in the body.
If the complaint feels very burdensome, or if there are weaknesses in muscles or locomotor you should consult directly with a neurologist. Doctors need a physical examination directly or supporting examinations, such as laboratory, X-ray, CT scan, ultrasound, or nerve conduction examination. After knowing the exact cause of your complaint, the doctor will provide treatment in accordance with the cause of your complaint.
Some things you can do between:
Avoid activities that burden your hands that are injured or numb
Eat foods with balanced nutrition
Avoid smoking, consuming alcohol or using drugs
Avoid excessive stress
