Tingling Sensation And Difficulty Moving The Fingers After Being Pinched?
Good Morning Doctor, I want to ask, how long does it normally feel the fingers are numb when pinched? Already 2 weeks ago I was pinched, I already take neuro supplements, but still it hurts. Very uncomfortable and disturbing work when typing on a computer. Thanks.
Good morning, thanks for the question
Complaints in the form of tingling and difficulty moving the fingers are probably due to the condition of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). CTS is a condition of squeezing or compressing the median nerve that runs in the palm of the hand. The median nerve is located on the side of the palm and preserves sensation toward the thumb, index, middle finger, and part of the ring finger.
Inflammation in the structure of the palm of the hand causes pressure on the median nerve, causing complaints of tingling, weakness, or numbness in the area being conserved.
Some conditions that cause inflammation include:
2. Thyroid dysfunction
3. Fluid retention
4. High blood pressure
5. Autoimmune diseases
6. Injury to the palm
Complaints of CTS will be more severe when the palm is too extended. Repeated movements of the wrist also cause swelling of the median nerve. Activities that can worsen CTS complaints include:
1. Hand position when using a computer keyboard.
2. Repeated movements that cause overextension of the wrist.
3. Conducting vibration directly on the hand for a long time.
Doctors diagnose CTS based on symptoms and physical examination. Make further consultations with a neurologist to be able to do a physical examination and determine the appropriate treatment. CTS that is not handled properly can cause permanent nerve damage, disability, and decreased motor function of the hand.
That's all, hope you can help
