Good health is the key to a happy life. But health issues keep on cropping up from time to time, and you have to attend to the problems immediately. For instance, when you are suffering from numb and swollen hand symptoms [ อาการ มือ บวม ชา, which is the term in Thai], there can be different reasons behind the problem. Anything from nerve problems to nutritional deficiencies can be the cause of the problem. The usual reasons for numbness in your hands can be carpal tunnel syndrome, acute trauma from an accident or injury, or side effects of some medication.
Diagnosis is essential
Have you been doing some repeated movement with your hand for a long time? It can be anything like writing, typing, or pressing then buttons. Then you might be suffering from Carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a repetitive stress condition.
- Repeated motions put pressure on your median nerve, the chief one of your hand.
- As the pressure will keep on squeezing the nerve, you will start experiencing pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand, wrists, and sometimes, in the arms too.
If you ignore the symptoms now, the condition will grow worse over time. Many doctors suggest wearing a wrist splint. Bt you also have to cut down on the activities until the inflammation subsides.
Find the cause
Physical trauma can be another cause of the numb and swollen hand symptoms. But you cannot undergo any treatment unless you visit the doctor and the doctor diagnoses your condition. Injuries from a car crash or some cuts and stretches can also be the reason for the swelling. The swollen joints can also be the symptom of Rheumatoid arthritis. Timely diagnosis will help in protecting the flexibility of the joints and ensure a speedy recovery.
