Why At The Age Of 42 Years Often Twitching Hands, Especially If Exposed To Water?
Hi Doc, my aunt is 42 years old and since 3 days ago her hands often twitched when she was doing activities involving water. At first my aunt said she felt uncomfortable when she saw the tips of her fingers twitching and so now when I get water like that but this time the palm of his hand was twitching though not for a long time the water got kyak (washing dishes, mopping ect) and after that his palm became rough like that. So my aunt has a health problem or what? Is this normal or not? Thanks
Twitching can occur on any part of the body that has muscles, but generally in the face area. Twitching is caused by involuntary movements of muscle contractions. Twitches on the hands or fingers can be caused by:
Muscle fatigue, for example due to excessive activity using the hands
Lack of certain vitamins or minerals such as potassium, calcium, or vitamin B
The body lacks fluids / dehydration
Carpal tunnel syndrome
There are many more abnormalities that can cause twitch complaints on the hands. If the twitch appears very often, you should bring your aunt to consult further with a neurologist. Complaints of twitching on the hands need to watch out for if followed by other complaints such as weakness in the hands, numbness, pain in the hands, swelling arises. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
