Thumb Hand Feels Thick And Bump When Held?
Afternoon, this morning after I woke up I felt my thumb felt thick, to move my hand nothing was reduced at all, but if touched it did not feel as normal as my left hand. It feels like a bump is held, but it does not itch, does not hurt, and does not swell. If you say it is like tingling, but it’s not like tingling.
Hello Ramadhanty, Thank you for the question.
Does this complaint disappear after a while or settle down? Numbness in a part of the body is known in medical paresthesias. This condition generally occurs on the hands or feet, appears suddenly, and is not accompanied by pain. Paresthesia can be divided into transient paresthesia or chronic paresthesias. Most people must have experienced transient paresthesia that occurs due to nerve stress due to certain body positions such as sleeping with your head / body resting on your hands or sitting cross-legged. These complaints will occur temporarily and disappear when the emphasis is gone. But if this complaint persists (chronic paresthesias), it is possible that this condition is caused by a certain medical condition such as:
narrowing of the spinal cord nerve hernia nucleus pulposus deficiency of vitamins B1, B6, B12 autoimmune diseases nerve injury due to hypothyroidism and other repetitive movements Please try to pay attention to your sleeping position. Avoid sleeping positions on your hands. If this complaint arises, you can try moving your hands that are experiencing symptoms. If the symptoms disappear, then there is nothing you need to worry about because temporary paresthesias do not require special treatment. Please immediately consult a neurologist if this complaint persists. Your doctor needs to examine you to determine the cause and treatment that is right for you.
Hopefully this information is useful.
