Good afternoon, when I wake up in the afternoon, suddenly my left body (legs and arms) become tingling, is the condition normal or not? For the position of my left hand when I woke up, please help, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tingling when you wake up most often occurs due to excessive pressure on the side of the body tingling, for example if you sleep too long tilted to the left or if you wear clothes that are too tight when sleeping. However, if this tingling lasts for a long time, especially to the point of causing pain, numbness, weakness, and even paralysis, it is also worth considering other possible causes, such as:
Nerve disorders (for example due to a lack of neurtropic nutrition, stroke, diabetic neuropagi, post herpetic neuralgia, multiple sclerosis, pinched nerves)
Impaired electrical balance, especially sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium
Metabolic disorders, for example dehydration, hyperglycemia, hypercholesterolemia
Vascular disorders, for example atherosclerosis
Joint, muscle, and supporting tissue disorders, for example rheumatoid arthrtis, fibromyalgia
Psychological disorders, liver, kidney disorders, and many other possibilities
Need to be clarified, how long do you feel the pins and needles? Are there other complaints that accompany it?
If tingling occurs temporarily without any other complaints that accompany it, you can first resolve the complaint by:
Use loose clothes
Mutually change your sleeping position, use a comfortable sleeping pad, not too hard, not too soft
Compress the tingling area with warm water, do not carelessly sorted
Eat a variety of nutritious foods, rich in neurotropic nutrients
Don't smoke, stay away from alcohol and drugs
Control your emotions well
Do not carelessly take medicine without doctor's advice
Regularly exercise every day
Check with yourself directly to a doctor or neurologist if the steps above have not been successful in overcoming your complaint.
I hope this helps.
