Loss of sensitivity and tingling
Sometimes we wake up with the feeling that we have lost sensitivity in certain parts of our body, and when we move it starts tingling. Usually it’s just because we pressed on the sensory nerve for a long time. The tingling is the time that the nerve needs to get back to work.
In some cases these symptoms in the hands can be a sign of a more serious problem like cervical osteochondrosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, venous thrombosis of the limb, a brachial plexus injury, anemia or diabetes. If you often experience loss of sensitivity in your hands without an obvious reason, go and consult with your doctor.
The most common reasons for dry skin on the hands are dehydration and estrogen deficiency which goes hand-in-hand with menopause. To avoid dehydration drink enough water and use moisturizing hand creams. Include oily fish, seeds, and nuts in your diet. Visit your doctor for hormonal replacement therapy, it will help you to control the estrogen drop.
It’s known that shaking hands can be a sign of serious health problems like Parkinson’s Disease. If you have serious concern go and get medical advice. In the meantime limit your strong coffee and alcohol intake because they can also cause trembling hands. Other possible reasons are anxiety and major stress.
