Numbness in the hands or feet indicates that something is wrong with our body. This phenomenon may even indicate a very serious health problem.
The fingers on your hands have the most nerve endings. Although not all numbness is cause for panic, experts still advise how it is best to move as quickly as possible to identify the cause. In this way, the treatment will be faster and more efficiently.
Medical assistance is required for sure if your fingers are often numb, feel pain, weakness and slight paralysis. This condition should not be ignored if you have tics, lose consciousness, orientation, ability to speak or eyesight.
The fingers can become numb due to prolonged sitting, standing or lying in the same position. The cause may be poor circulation, pressure on the nerves in the spine, nerves damage, pressure on peripheral nerves and infections.
Numbness occurs as an indicator of certain diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, migraine and heart attack or stroke. Numbness can be caused by a lack of vitamins and minerals in the body, excessive smoking or drinking coffee, and drug use.
So if they occur often and without a specific reason, make sure you see a doctor immediately.
