The Use Of Heparin For Numb Feet In Patients With Minor Strokes?
I am a sufferer of a mild stroke because of a blockage … now both feet feel very numb and stiff. May I use the trombophob gel, which contains the liver to improve blood circulation..mksh
Hello Irfan, Thank you for the question.
Numb feet can be caused by:
transient ischemic attack (TIA) peripheral neuropathy, or mild stroke herniated nucleus pulposus (HNP) Thrombophob gel is a topical heparin-containing topical medication used to thin the blood that has collected under the skin as a result of bruising. This medicine does not work deeper and cannot be used in conditions caused by blocked arteries (such as stroke). The use of this drug to handle your complaint is not appropriate.
We recommend that you consult a neurologist first for further examination because your complaints can be caused by various health conditions for which the treatment is not the same. The doctor will ask further questions about your complaint and examine you to find the cause. The next treatment depends on your medical condition.
I hope this information is useful for you.
