Numbness toes: symptoms, reasons, treatment

Numbers of fingersMost people are familiar to the feeling of numbness - when the fingers, hand or leg elder, for example, due to the transfer of blood vessels. Women who love to throw leg legs in the pose sitting, well know how the leg will gradually do because of blood vessels ended under the knee. Normally, a slight warm-up, just a few times to move the numb part of the body, and the sensitivity is restored. Or maybe there is numbness caused by other reasons, and what to do if it does not pass?

What is the numbness of the toes, why appears

The numbness of the fingers on the legs of a person feels in damage to the nerves or vessels, when the blood circulation is disturbed when the blood does not flow normally into the limb. At the same time, the sensitivity is losing sensitivity or can be felt like a lung tingling. Such a state can only be localized in one Leg, or, in the fingers of both legs, as well as in the fingers of the hands. Often numbness of the fingers on the legs is the first manifestation of the pinching of the sedellastic nerve in humans. In addition, the condition may be accompanied by pain in the back, in the legs, impaired motor ability of the fingers and the entire limb.

In everyday life, even a healthy person, the fingers are neglected because of a long stay in an inconvenient position, after throwing one leg to another - due to the postcase, compression (squeezing) of blood vessels and nerve endings occurs, and the sensitivity of a certain part of the body disappears. This state of treatment does not require, as it passes itself - it is worth only to get up, to disperse, release the leg and give blood freely circulate in limbs .

And what if the sensitivity does not return? There are some diseases in which the sensitivity of the fingers is lost on the legs. So, the reasons for the appearance of numbness, mainly belong to either the pathologies of the spine, or to diseases of the muscular engineering Guo apparatus or to nervous and vascular diseases.

In patients with numbness fingers, such destructive processes in the body are often discovered:

  • osteochondrosis;
  • spondylosis ( Complication of osteochondrosis ) in the lumbar department;
  • vertebral instability;
  • Intervertebral hernia, spinal tumors;
  • Bursit and arthrosis of the knee joint;
  • radiculitis and inflammation of the sciatic nerve;
  • Tunnel syndromes, for example, irritation of a locking nerve, reducing the lateral skin nerve;
  • obliterates endarteritic, atherosclerosis of vessels, that is, occlusive diseases of the vessels;
  • Pathological conditions of the central nervous system: microinsult, multiple sclerosis (usually lead to extensive numbness, including hands and feet, stop);
  • Of the less obvious reasons for the appearance of the numbers of the toes - tuberculosis, diabetes, as well as the condition of pregnancy.

In addition, numbness may occur if the nerve end or blood vessels were damaged, for example, after surgery, as well as due to extensive intoxication of the body (after chemotherapy).

Sensitivity loss status diagnostics

DizzinessBecause of the abundance of possible causes of pathology, consider it as the main sign in the process of diagnosis is inappropriate. For diagnostic purposes, it is necessary to take into account all clinical signs that accompany the condition - it may be pain, dizziness, tingling in the muscles. In addition, it is necessary to accurately determine the localization of loss of sensitivity - it can cover only one leg, can combine with numbness of the entire leg, or part of the knee to fingers, can affect the pads or fingertips, the area under the fingers.

Determination of the cause, diagnosis and the appointment of therapy for treating a problem is possible only after a careful examination of the patient, clarifying all physical and clinical indications. The patient can be directed to X-ray, MRI, computed tomography, ultrasound diagnosis or examination of the thermal imager. To determine vascular pathologies, the Doppler ultrasound vessels is a special value.

Therapeutic therapy for the normalization of the patient's condition

First of all, to restore the sensitivity of the part of the body, where there was a violation, the impact should be directed to the cause, due to which numbness occurs. If the problem in osteochondrosis of the spine, therapeutic measures should be aimed at eliminating its complications, including protrusions of disks, displacement and instability of the vertebrae which can cause the infringement of the nerve spindle nerves roots .

If necessary, drug therapy is prescribed, depending on the source of the formation of sensitivity loss - this may be therapy with antibiotics, antihistamine drugs, the use of special ointments, for example, vazonitis, verkin.

Physiosparcesters in the form of ultrasonic or laser therapy help to return the sensitivity to the fingers on the legs, in addition, contribute to the decrease in the enemy, is acknowledged by the amazed zones. The impact of the laser restores nervous and muscle conductivity, stimulates the regeneration of cartilage tissue.

Electrotherapy with the effects of weak power currents helps, depending on the situation, stimulate the spasm of the lower limb, or, on the contrary, cause it relaxation. Shock-wave therapy contributes to the destruction of salt deposits (spikes and osteophytes), which can partially affect the level of sensitivity of the toes.

Back and limb massage - one of the most popular and efficient ways to return lost sensitivity Onemevs Zones, restore blood circulation and oxygen access to cells.

The numbness of the fingers on the legs is a condition that often occurs in people at night, while sleeping in an uncomfortable position. It may also come during wakefulness when a person is sitting in an uncomfortable posture for a long time, in which blood flow to the limb is disturbed. To normalize the state, it is usually enough to perform a few simple exercises, moving a little to the foot, strain the muscles. If numbness occurs without visible reasons, when walking, accompanied by pain syndrome in any parts of the body, spasms, a change in the color of the skin, and has a permanent character, you should seek medical care to establish the cause of the pathological condition.

When it comes to the treatment of numbness numbers, it is important to understand that various methods of therapy will be directed not so much on the removal of unpleasant symptoms, but to eradicate the reason that caused the loss of the sensitivity of the toes. That is why it is so important that the diagnosis is not only timely, but also corresponded to the true state of affairs.

A pain relief drugs are used from the means of drug therapy during numbers of the toes, the means for removing muscle spasms (muscle relaxants), vitamin and mineral complexes. If the loss of the sensitivity of the limb is associated with a circulatory impairment in the vessels, in addition to the above-mentioned means, drug-angioprotectors are prescribed, which reduce blood microcirculation, as well as drugs that reduce blood clotting to prevent blood clothing, which is typical for varicose veins and thrombosis.

If the reason for the numbness of the toes is somehow connected with the work of the joints, the chondroprotectors can be added to the general list of drugs that can restore cartilage tissues and optimize the condition and operation of the joints, thus preventing their negative effects on the nerves and vessels.

To improve the nervous conductivity, vitamins and mineral complexes are most often used, less often - drugs. The decisive role in this case is played by drug vitamins, especially containing vitamins B1 and B12, which are responsible for the transfer of nerve pulses. From minerals worth paying attention to zinc, potassium, calcium and magnesium. These substances along with vitamins and amino acids are responsible for the health of the central and peripheral nervous system.

When frostbite, diabetic foot and other states with the formation of purulent wounds, assistance of antibiotics that prevent blood infection due to gangrene is required.

Medicines for numbness numbers

The numbers of the toes are always accompanied by unpleasant sensations, such as burning, tingling and pain. In order to relieve these symptoms, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used in the form of patches, tablets, ointments or injections. Most often, "Analgin", Paracetamol, Pentalgin, derivatives of salicylic acid are prescribed. With a pronounced pain syndrome against the background of intervertebral hernia or rheumatoid arthritis, stronger preparations are prescribed, such as Diclofenak, Ibuprofen, Meloxico, etc.

"Meloxicam" - an inexpensive non-steroidal drug, distinguished by pronounced anti-inflammatory, painkillers and antipyretic effect. It does not have a negative effect on the cartilage cloth. It is used both in the form of tablets and injectable.

The method of application and dose of the drug depends on the diagnosed disease. Tablets are accepted once a day along with food. Injections Most often imply the introduction of the drug once within a day. Dosage medication may vary from 7.5 mg to 15 mg per day.

Reception of the drug may be accompanied by dyspepsia, anemia, skin rashes and itching, pain in the head and dizziness, disorders in the work of the kidneys and liver. About the emerging side effects of the drug must be notified by the doctor.

Precautions. The reception of large doses of the drug can cause an overdose accompanied by clouding of consciousness, disorders in the work of the gastrointestinal tract, pain in the abdomen, gastric bleeding, stopping the breath, the development of renal or liver failure. Treatment of this state implies measures to accelerate the removal of the drug from the body: washing the stomach, receiving activated carbon or swiveraffin.

The drug is not prescribed to children under 15 years old, patients with intolerance of acetylsalicylic acid, ulcerative and inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, during bleeding, with cardiac, renal or liver failure, during pregnancy and lactation.

In case of impairment of peripheral blood circulation, varicose veins, diabetes, atherosclerosis of the lower limbs vessels, as well as during the lesions of the spine to improve microcirculation, prescribe angioprotectors are prescribed. These include Pentoxifillain, "Doxaleg", "Vaison", "Antistax", etc.

"Doxaleg" - The drug most frequently used in pathology therapy, causing numbness of the toes.

Dosage and method of using the drug depends on the disease. The usual recommended dose of medication is 250-750 mg per day. Multiplicity of reception from 1 to 4 times a day. Capsules are taken, not chewing, while eating or at its end.

Reception of the drug may be accompanied by the following side effects: disorders of digestion, changes in hepatic indicators, allergic manifestations.

"Doxalegs" is able to strengthen the effect of drugs that dilute blood, in particular "heparin".

The drug is contraindicated in peptic lesions of the gastrointestinal lesions, gastric bleeding, liver diseases and kidney, blood clotting violation, in 1 trimester of pregnancy. Designed to treat patients over 13 years old.

"Heparin" - a drug that reduces blood viscosity and preventing thrombosis, which, with numbness of the toes, associated with circulatory disorders, are prescribed in the form of ointment, subcutaneous or intravenous injections and droppers.

The method of use and dosage of the drug is established by the doctor individually in each case.

The side effects of the drug include skin and general allergic reactions, bleeding and hemorrhage, pain in the head, joints and the place of administration of the drug, redness of the skin, disorders of digestion, an increase in blood pressure, changing laboratory indicators.

When the drug is overdose, bleeding of various intensities are observed.

Contraindications for use:

  • hypersensitivity to the drug
  • thrombocytopenia caused by the reception of heparin, a history of
  • various types of bleeding,
  • Periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

With caution, it is necessary to refer to the reception of the drug under ulcerative lesions of the gastrointestinal tract, heart diseases, diseases of the blood formation organs, CNS pathologies, oncology.

If the numbness of the toes is caused by degenerative processes in the joints, as a result of which the nearby nerves and vessels are damaged, the drug-chondroprotectors are used to stop the pathological process, which are positively affecting the cartilaginous and bone tissue. A vivid example of such a medication is "chondroxide", normalizing the metabolism in cartilage and the regenerating effect on bone and junction tissue of the joints.

The drug can be used both in the form of tablets and in the form of ointments or gel that are applied directly to the skin over the affected main disease area 2-3 times a day. Tablets also take 2 times a day for 2 pieces per reception with a small amount of fluid, regardless of meals.

The course of treatment with the drug depending on the state of the patient and the applied form of the drug is from 2-3 weeks to six months with the possibility of repeated courses in 3-5 months.

Side Effects in the drug a little. Sometimes allergic reactions occur, nausea and stool disorder appears.

A little bit from him and contraindications. This is a period of pregnancy and breastfeeding, as well as hypersensitivity to the drug. Care in taking medication must be observed with a leaning towards bleeding.

Treatment of numbness toes on the background of diabetes mellitus or frostbite may include the reception of antibacterial drugs ("gentamicin", "ampicillin", "offloxacin", etc.) in order to avoid full loss of sensitivity due to the necrosis of the limbs and eliminate the fatal outcome in As a result of blood infection with products of their collapse.

Physiotherapeutic treatment of numbers

In the treatment of numbness of fingers, physiotherapeutic treatment is gaining widespread, which is often more efficient and safe than medication. A variety of physiotherapy methods allows you to choose the desired treatment option in various pathologies under which there is a decrease in the sensitivity of the limbs, find an individual approach to the treatment of each patient.

Recently, temperature therapy is increasingly popular, i.e. Treatment with warmth and cold . When the fingertips of the feet are numb, good results give contrasting baths for legs and therapy with cold, which quickly and effectively removes inflammation, removes swelling, has a pronounced anticonvulsant and anesthetic effect. Such procedures help not only in a short time to restore the sensitivity of the hands and legs, but also have a positive effect on the work of all organs and systems of the body.

Electrophoresis It is used in all cases when it is necessary to strengthen the conductivity of nerve impulses or improve muscle and tissue activity. It contributes to the removal of all unpleasant symptoms accompanying the numbness of the limbs. Drug electrophoresis has been widely used in the complex therapy of any neurological diseases, since with its help the necessary drugs are introduced directly into the affected zone, having a strong therapeutic effect.

Pain and numbness of the toes can be removed Several laser sessions which, with the help of light particles, stimulates the restoration and normalizes the functions of various human tissues.

Similar effect has it Magnetotherapy which also stimulates the body to combat varying diseases, improving brain and heart activities and removing pain concomitiated by numbness in some pathologies.

And, of course, it is simply impossible to overestimate The benefit of therapeutic massage With loss of sensitivity. If numbness is not related to the development of some pathology in the human body, but is only the result of finding in an uncomfortable posture or wearing inappropriate shoes, massage is the only therapeutic method that allows you to remove the symptoms of numbness in short time.

Relaxing and therapeutic massage is also useful in numbness of the toes on the background of some pathologies, because it helps to safely and effectively remove muscle spasms and vessels, improves blood circulation and tissue trophics, relieves pain, returning sensitivity.

Useful for numbness numbers and Moderate physical exertion . Daily jogging, swimming and some exercises (compressing the squeezing of the toes, riding a rounded item stops, walking on socks and heels) will help not only to remove the symptoms of numbness, but also prevent this state in the future.

Manual and Hardherapy Methods (Treatment of leeches), acupuncture and reflexology, balneological baths, mud massage, transcutaneous / perceltering electrostimulation, massage stones help improve patient condition and consolidate the result from complex therapy for a long time.

Folk Medicine during the numbness of the limbs

Popular treatment is measures and tools that will help weaken the manifestations of the numbers of the fingers on their own, without resorting to the help of doctors. But this does not mean at all that the use of people's experience should be uncontrolled and occur in return for medication.

Consider the folk recipes that allow you to remove the symptoms of numbness toes and strengthen the effect of pharmacy drugs that are designed to fight the main disease.

  • Recipe 1. Wrapping with honey. They are held for each non-novel finger separately. For this, the finger is made by honey, which is thoroughly rubbed into the skin, and then wrapping the segment of the fabric or bandage. Do it better for the night.
  • Recipe 2. Garlic lemon infusion. 1 Lemon and garlic head are crushed, poured 2 glasses (500 ml) of water and insist 4 days. Infusion drink before eating in the amount of ¼ cup.
  • Recipe 3. Rubbing: Salted cucumbers and burning peppers. 2-3 cucumber cut into cubes and mixed with 3 pods of ground red peppers, add 500 ml of vodka and insist in a dark place for 7 days.

Recipe of Tibetan medicine . Pour hot water of such a temperature into a large bowl, which is able to endure. Lower the legs into it and put the bottom of the bowl with your fingers. After a few minutes, the sensitivity of the fingers is restored.

Don't forget about Treatment of herbs . When the fingertips are numbered, a positive action is wormwood, a dying, chicory, a buggy bog. The tincture of herbs on vodka or apple vinegar is used for therapeutic rubbing.

Homeopathy in the numbness of the toes

Treatment of the disease, which causes numbness of the toes, continues not one day, and this means that it will have to saturate its body with chemical compounds included in the composition of prescribed pharmaceutical drugs for a long period. You can resort to the means of traditional medicine, but by themselves they will not bring the desired recovery. It means that it makes sense to try the effective and safe funds that homeopathy offers us.

As mentioned, one of the mineral substances involved in the correction of nervous conductivity is zinc. Zincum Metallicum is a homeopathic preparation that fills the reserves of this trace element in the body. It is used in high dilutions, not less than 12th. A more accurate purpose can give a homeopath.

The same applies to potassium and calcium preparations: Kali Phosphoricum, which is used in 3 and 6 breeding, Calcarea phosphoryica (3, 6, 12 breeding), Calcium carbonicum (as prescribed by the doctor). For pain and numbness of the toes, magnesium preparations can also be assigned: Magnesium Carbonicum or Magnesium Phosphoricum.

With damage to the nervous and bone system, preparations from the TARENTULA HISPANICA spider or the teridion can be appointed. Dose of these drugs depend on the pathology at which they are applied. The first drug is recommended to be used in the 3rd dilution and above 2 times a week. Second doses can fluctuate.

The numbness of the limbs against the background of the impairment of peripheral blood circulation is treated with the help of the homeopathic preparation of Aesculus Compositum, which must be taken 3 times a day after meals. The medicine is produced in the form of droplets, the daily dose of it ranges from 3 to 10 drops, depending on the age of the patient. The drops are divorced in a minor amount of water, before swallowing them, it is recommended to hold them in the oral cavity.

With any nervous diseases, including the numbness of the toes on the backdrop of damage to the nerves, the positive effect is provided by the drug "Nerviev."

No matter how good and safe, any homeopathic preparation is your destination should produce a homeopath, and not the patient himself. Despite the practical absence of side effects, with the use of homeopathic remedies, some precautions will be observed, because any drug may not be so secure in the development of the reaction of hypersensitivity. And some drugs are not recommended to take up to a certain age or during periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Do you need an operation during numbness of the toes?

The numbness of the toes is a pathology, which requires mainly conservative treatment, which includes therapy with medication, homeopathic and folk remedies, physiotherapy, correction of behavior and lifestyle. Operational treatment in this situation is rarely applied and only due to the main disease caused by the permeation of the limbs. Such diseases include varicose veins, spinal hernia, oncological diseases of the spine.

For example, with varicose veins of veins, the doctor can resort to phlebectomy, which consists in surgical removal of damaged veins. When thrombosis veins may require the removal of blood clots that cause blood blocks.

The surgical path is carried out with the hernia of intervertebral disks, as well as with malignant neoplasms on the spine. Sometimes such an operation not only helps to remove the symptoms of the numbness of the legs, but also saves the patient's life.

In severe cases of frostbite of fingers or diabetes, when the purulent process is progressing on the site of the Russian Academy of Sciences and develops tissue necrosis, sometimes resort to finger amputation or footage.

Numbness toes: Causes, Treatment

Numbers of fingers

It happens that after a long stay in an uncomfortable posture with bent legs, a person begins to feel discomfort in the limb and comes numbers of fingers and sometimes legs in general. This is due to the relocation of foot vessels. This situation is easy to fix. Active movements and light massage rather quickly eliminates the symptoms of numbness, which manifest themselves in the form of unpleasant tingling or burning, the feeling that goosebumps run on the leg, a bit of painful tightening and unfortunately angry. But such measures do not always help, because various pathologies can be the cause of numbness of limbs.

Epidemiology of numbness of fingers

Studies show that 90% of all complaints about frequent or prolonged "unprecedented" numbness of the toes are associated with one diagnosis - osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine. At the same time, this symptom is observed most often in those who are diagnosed with the stage of formation of the hernia of intervertebral disks.

According to other studies, 40% of cases of chronic innervation of innervation of fingers and feet fall on chronic diseases, such as diabetes, oncological diseases of the spine, HIV infection, lack of vitamins, chronic alcoholism and even severe liver and kidney damage. Almost a third of all cases of numbers have a hereditary factor, and the fifth of the fifth of the inflammatory diseases. In addition, it is not always possible to accurately determine the cause of pathology, which, however, makes the further therapy significantly.

Reasons for numbers

In any case, patients celebrate the first signs of numbness, such as tingling and burning in the fingers, loss of skin sensitivity, the appearance of "goosebumps", the weakening of the mobility of the fingers, foot or limbs in general.

In itself, the numbness of the toes is not dangerous, as it serves as a signal to the development of other pathologies. But just these very pathologies in their development may sometimes lead to deposits. The consequences and complications in turn depend on the disease, one of the symptoms of which is numbered legs. For example, the usual supercooling of the toes can cause strong inflammation of the lungs, and frostbite threatens necrosis of fabrics and gangrena, to prevent the finger or part of the legs practiced.

The same hazardous complications may be observed with endarteritis, in which the artery is overlap, which can also end with Gangrena.

Probably, it is not worth reminding that the "popular" osteochondrosis of the spine is one of the most common causes of the loss of performance and disability, if the process of deformation of the intervertebral disks do not stop on time.

No less dangerous oncological problems with the spine. Numbness numbers are the most harmless circumstance in this position. If you pay attention to the symptoms that appeared and reveal the tumor at an early stage, there are all chances to remove it with the smallest risk for health and life. If you allow the growth of malignant cells, the consequences can be the most tragic.

If, after a long seating on a legged foot or in the position "foot leg" comes numbness of the limb, continuing to 1-2 minutes, there is no particular reason to beat the alarm. It is easy to massate or energetically grind onto the onmatel stretch of legs.

But in the case when the loss of sensitivity, accompanied by unpleasant sensations, does not pass for a long time, this is already a signal that goes to the doctor to identify the causes of the pathological condition in the list of cases.

The numbness of the fingers and legs is nothing but the loss of sensitivity caused by violations in the work of the vascular or nervous system. These include pinching or lesion of peripheral nerves, transferring or decreased by vessels, as a result of which circulatory disruption occurs, the lack of the necessary organisms of vitamins and trace elements.

Well, who would doubt that in the first place in the prevalence of the reasons for the numbers of the fingers, the osteochondrosis will be the osteochondrosis, which has recently been becoming increasingly more and more distribution. The lion's share of cases of finiterations accounts for precisely on osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine, especially if the presence of hernia or the preceding the absorption of intervertebral disks is diagnosed.

Often the loss of sensitivity in the legs is observed against the background of other diseases affecting the spine. This is a radiculitis of the lumbar department, scoliosis and various states associated with pinching nerves in the area of ​​intervertebral disks. The numbness of the middle finger is associated with the diseases of the spine, including the oncological pathology of the spine, as well as peripheral nerves.

Not only the oncological diseases themselves, but also some methods of their treatment can cause loss of paresthesia (numbness) of the limbs. The numbers of the fingers during chemotherapy occurs due to impairment of the conductivity of nerve pulses from receptors caused by the damage to the nerve fibers of the peripheral nervous system. First, there is numbness of the fingertips of the legs, and then the process affects the entire limb.

For osteochondrosis, it is characterized by the numbness of the fingertips of the right leg. The same symptom can be associated with endocrine (thyroid disease, diabetes mellitus, etc.) or infectious (HIV, herpes, etc.) diseases. In particular, some viruses create a favorable ground in human body for the development of such an autoimmune disease, as rheumatoid arthritis, affecting various joints, organs and organism systems and accompanied by a sensitivity disorder.

Loss of sensitivity can be a symptom of strong intocication of the body due to the reception of large doses of drugs or alcohol abuse. Sometimes the numbness of the fingers is caused by the injury of the limb and associated with the effects of the consequences, a lack of vitamins or diseases of the vessels.

The numbers of the toes in diabetes can be caused by angiopathy (the destruction of the vascular walls of the capillaries, arteries and veins) either the peripheral type of neuropathy (nerve disease). At the same time, loss of sensitivity can be observed on one or both legs. There is a so-called diabetic foot syndrome with complete loss of sensitiveness.

Chronic polyneeropathy with multiple lesions of the peripheral nervous system develops not only against the background of diabetes mellitus. The reasons for its development can be poisoning poisoning and toxins, various kinds of infection and even allergic processes. The disease is characterized by the loss of all kinds of sensitivity, which can later lead to paralysis.

One of the types of neuropathies, which is characterized by the numbness of the leg and fingers, is the tunnel syndrome. The reason for the occurrence of the tunnel neuropathy of a common small -com nerve becomes squeezing the nerve between the mulberry bone and the edge of the long muscle of the same name below the knee joint. This is observed with a long seat with a fitted foot and passes, as soon as the limb will take a relaxed position. But if the tunnel syndrome was preceded by injury (for example, a fracture of a toolobone bone) or a knee operation, a serious treatment may be required before everything comes to normal.

Among the diseases of the vessels, one of the symptoms of which is the constant numbness of the fingers of the tooth, can be distinguished by refriring endarteritic and Reino disease. The first is a disease of autoimmune nature with thoroughly unexplored causes and is manifested by the narrowing of the arterial vessels of the lower extremities, as a result of which blood circulation is disturbed. In case of Raino disease, a decrease in blood current by vessels can be caused by stress and alcohol intoxication.

Blood impairment can also be caused by thrombosis or blockage of vessels by cholesterol plaques during atherosclerosis. The numbers of the toes can accompany the ischemic stroke affecting the lower cerebellar and vertebral arteries.

If numbness (paresthesia) is observed in the thumb area, you can talk about a possible impairment of metabolism. A striking example of the disease of this group causing the numbness of the limbs is a gap (deposition of salts in the joints). With this pathology, the numbness of the fingers can be observed both on the right foot and in the field of the left leg.

The pain and numbness of the toes are observed with various neurological pathologies and spasms of vessels. So the transmission of the nervous barrel in the region of the lower extremities causes the so-called tunnel syndrome, and the pathological swelling of the peripheral nerve is a nonzero, which is characterized by numbness of stop and fingers.

Painful sensations against the background of the loss of sensitivity of the toes can be caused by a banal shortage of the necessary vitamin organism. We are talking about vitamins A, B3 and B12.

There were cases of numbness of the fingers of the feet associated with the hyperventilation of the lungs, the advancing due to the change in the frequency and the forces of the inhalation of the exhalation due to strong excitement.

The uneven squeezing of various fees, characteristic of flatfoot, can also negatively affect the sensitivity of the limbs.

The numbness of the fingers on the legs does not necessarily indicate some disease. For example, the numbering of the mother's motherhood on the foot most often does not cause special concerns and is associated with wearing close shoes. If shoes are small in size and the reinforce of the fingers rests on the shoe sock, the disruption of the sensitivity of this finger is not excluded.

Pathogenesis of numbness fingers

The numbness of the limbs is most often observed if blood vessels or nerve fibers are exposed to. It may be squeezing or driving veins, arteries, capillaries and nerve endings. What happens when squeezing the nerves and vessels, why do we feel numbness, and then pain and tingling? Consider the pathogenesis of this process.

If due to the disease or for another reason, the inflection or compression of blood vessels occurs, it is logical to assume that the blood circulation is disturbed as a result. If it comes to peripheral vessels, the lower or upper limbs suffer. Weakening of blood current leads to the fact that hands and legs become cold and lose sensitivity, i.e. Empty.

Blood impairment during damage or decrease in the diameter of the vessels often leads to a violation of the nerve nutrition, which is also able to cause numbness to the fingers or hands, as well as atrophy or pinching the nerve endings.

The negative impact on the vessels or nerve fibers leads to a violation of the conductivity of nerve pulses from sensitive receptors and the brain does not receive signals from them, and therefore we cannot adequately respond to the sensation.

By the way, the circulatory disorder can cause a banal supercooling. Under the influence of low temperatures, blood flow slows down, which is accompanied by the pallor of the skin of the fingers and their numbness. In case of severe frostbite, the usual numbness can change the pain, long loss of sensitivity and the dieting tissues.

Sometimes some production conditions contribute to the emergence of numbness of the legs. We are talking about vibration, which can cause a resistant spasm of peripheral vessels, which will affect the further sensitivity of the limbs.

Diagnostics of numbness toes

The diagnosis of the very finiteness of the limbs does not represent complexity, because the feeling of "wable" legs with unpleasant tingling and "running goosebumps" is difficult to confuse with something else. It is much more difficult to determine the cause that caused such a fortune, except if there is an uncomfortable posture in the number of legs, and we assume such an outcome in advance.

In principle, the numbness of the toes associated with wearing unsuitable in size or cramped shoes can also be easily foreseen. But in other cases, when the reasons for the numbness of the legs, it would seem no, there may be no additional analyzes and serious instrumental research in order to determine the pathology with great accuracy, the symptom of which is caused by anxiety numbness of the toes.

Since the most common cause of numbness of the lower extremities is osteochondrosis, the main method of instrumental diagnostics under this pathology is x-ray of various spine departments. MRI, CT and ultrasound vessels help determine the state of nervous and vascular systems and identify pathological changes in them.

Since the numbness of the legs is characteristic of many pathologies, it may require consultation of not one specialist to identify the reasons for numbness of the toes. This is the therapist, both neurologist, and an endocrinologist, and an angiologist, and a traumatologist, and a rheumatologist, and a vobtologist. These specialists can appoint their research.

For example, with sugar diabetes or atherosclerosis of vessels, not only a common, but also biochemical blood test, general urine analysis, helping to identify inflammation, increase glucose levels and cholesterol in the blood. Under suppuration, characteristic of diabetes, is additionally carried out by bakpospares from the Russian Academy of Sciences to identify the type of bacteria.

Sometimes it is also required X-ray for suspected damage to the joints and bones in them.

Complete information on the state of the inner walls of the vessels in vascular diseases and diabetes is given ultrasound duplex scanning, arterial oscillation and capillaryroscopy.

When suspected Riby's disease, specific studies, allowing to identify autoantibodies, leading the combating native cells for the body. Such studies are called immunological.

With vibration disease, in addition to capillaroscopy, allowing to determine the state of the vascular grid, special studies are carried out, such as the running sample and the thermometry of the legs.

The results of all the above studies, as well as information from the history, in combination with the information received from the patient and during the external inspection, will help as accurately be diagnosed during the differential diagnosis, so that after that, to begin an effective targeted treatment of a state accompanied by the numbers of the toes.

Which doctor treats numbness fingers stop

When it comes to the treatment of numbness numbers, it is important to understand that various methods of therapy will be directed not so much on the removal of unpleasant symptoms, but to eradicate the reason that caused the loss of the sensitivity of the toes. That is why it is so important that the diagnosis is not only timely, but also corresponded to the true state of affairs.

A pain relief drugs are used from the means of drug therapy during numbers of the toes, the means for removing muscle spasms (muscle relaxants), vitamin and mineral complexes.

If the reason for the numbness of the toes is somehow connected with the work of the joints, the chondroprotectors can be added to the general list of drugs that can restore cartilage tissues and optimize the condition and operation of the joints, thus preventing their negative effects on the nerves and vessels.

To improve the nervous conductivity, vitamins and mineral complexes are most often used, less often - drugs.

When frostbite, diabetic foot and other states with the formation of purulent wounds, assistance of antibiotics that prevent blood infection due to gangrene is required.

Medicines for numbers

The numbers of the toes are always accompanied by unpleasant sensations, such as burning, tingling and pain. In order to relieve these symptoms, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used in the form of patches, tablets, ointments or injections. Most often, "Analgin", Paracetamol, Pentalgin, derivatives of salicylic acid are prescribed. With a pronounced pain syndrome against the background of intervertebral hernia or rheumatoid arthritis, stronger preparations are prescribed, such as Diclofenak, Ibuprofen, Meloxico, etc.

"Meloxico" is an inexpensive non-steroidal drug, characterized by pronounced anti-inflammatory, painkillers and antipyretic effects. It does not have a negative effect on the cartilage cloth. It is used both in the form of tablets and injectable.

The method of application and dose of the drug depends on the diagnosed disease. Tablets are accepted once a day along with food. Injections Most often imply the introduction of the drug once within a day. Dosage medication may vary from 7.5 mg to 15 mg per day.

Reception of the drug may be accompanied by dyspepsia, anemia, skin rashes and itching, pain in the head and dizziness, disorders in the work of the kidneys and liver. About the emerging side effects of the drug must be notified by the doctor.

Precautions. The reception of large doses of the drug can cause an overdose accompanied by clouding of consciousness, disorders in the work of the gastrointestinal tract, pain in the abdomen, gastric bleeding, stopping the breath, the development of renal or liver failure. Treatment of this state implies measures to accelerate the removal of the drug from the body: washing the stomach, receiving activated carbon or swiveraffin.

The drug is not prescribed to children under 15 years old, patients with intolerance of acetylsalicylic acid, ulcerative and inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, during bleeding, with cardiac, renal or liver failure, during pregnancy and lactation.

In case of impairment of peripheral blood circulation, varicose veins, diabetes, atherosclerosis of the lower limbs vessels, as well as during the lesions of the spine to improve microcirculation, prescribe angioprotectors are prescribed. These include Pentoxifillain, "Doxaleg", "Vaison", "Antistax", etc.

"Doxaleg" is a drug that is most commonly used in pathology therapy, causing numbness to the fingers.

Dosage and method of using the drug depends on the disease. The usual recommended dose of medication is 250-750 mg per day. Multiplicity of reception from 1 to 4 times a day. Capsules are taken, not chewing, while eating or at its end.

Reception of the drug may be accompanied by the following side effects: disorders of digestion, changes in hepatic indicators, allergic manifestations.

"Doxalegs" is able to strengthen the effect of drugs that dilute blood, in particular "heparin".

The drug is contraindicated in peptic lesions of the gastrointestinal lesions, gastric bleeding, liver diseases and kidney, blood clotting violation, in 1 trimester of pregnancy. Designed to treat patients over 13 years old.

"Heparin" is a drug that reduces blood viscosity and preventing thrombosis, which is prescribed in the form of ointment, subcutaneous or intravenous injections in the form of ointments, subcutaneous or intravenous injection.

The method of use and dosage of the drug is established by the doctor individually in each case.

The side effects of the drug include skin and general allergic reactions, bleeding and hemorrhage, pain in the head, joints and the place of administration of the drug, redness of the skin, disorders of digestion, an increase in blood pressure, changing laboratory indicators.

When the drug is overdose, bleeding of various intensities are observed.

Contraindications for use:

  • hypersensitivity to the drug
  • thrombocytopenia caused by the reception of heparin, a history of
  • various types of bleeding,
  • Periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

With caution, it is necessary to refer to the reception of the drug under ulcerative lesions of the gastrointestinal tract, heart diseases, diseases of the blood formation organs, CNS pathologies, oncology.

If the numbness of the toes is caused by degenerative processes in the joints, as a result of which the nearby nerves and vessels are damaged, the drug-chondroprotectors are used to stop the pathological process, which are positively affecting the cartilaginous and bone tissue. A vivid example of such a medication is "chondroxide", normalizing the metabolism in cartilage and the regenerating effect on bone and junction tissue of the joints.

The drug can be used both in the form of tablets and in the form of ointments or gel that are applied directly to the skin over the affected main disease area 2-3 times a day. Tablets also take 2 times a day for 2 pieces per reception with a small amount of fluid, regardless of meals.

The course of treatment with the drug depending on the state of the patient and the applied form of the drug is from 2-3 weeks to six months with the possibility of repeated courses in 3-5 months.

Side Effects in the drug a bit. Sometimes allergic reactions occur, nausea and stool disorder appears.

A little bit from him and contraindications. This is a period of pregnancy and breastfeeding, as well as hypersensitivity to the drug. Care in taking medication must be observed with a leaning towards bleeding.

Treatment of numbness toes on the background of diabetes mellitus or frostbite may include the reception of antibacterial drugs ("gentamicin", "ampicillin", "offloxacin", etc.) in order to avoid full loss of sensitivity due to the necrosis of the limbs and eliminate the fatal outcome in As a result of blood infection with products of their collapse.

Physiotherapy in the numbness of the toes

In the treatment of numbness of fingers, physiotherapeutic treatment is gaining widespread, which is often more efficient and safe than medication. A variety of physiotherapy methods allows you to choose the desired treatment option in various pathologies under which there is a decrease in the sensitivity of the limbs, find an individual approach to the treatment of each patient.

Recently, temperature therapy is increasingly popular, i.e. Treatment with heat and cold. When the fingertips of the feet are numb, good results give contrasting baths for legs and therapy with cold, which quickly and effectively removes inflammation, removes swelling, has a pronounced anticonvulsant and anesthetic effect. Such procedures help not only in a short time to restore the sensitivity of the hands and legs, but also have a positive effect on the work of all organs and systems of the body.

Electrophoresis is applied in all cases when it is necessary to strengthen the conductivity of nerve pulses or improve muscle activity and tissue activity. It contributes to the removal of all unpleasant symptoms accompanying the numbness of the limbs. Drug electrophoresis has been widely used in the complex therapy of any neurological diseases, since with its help the necessary drugs are introduced directly into the affected zone, having a strong therapeutic effect.

The pain and numbness of the toes can be removed in several sessions of laser therapy, which, with the help of light particles, stimulates the restoration and normalizes the functions of various human tissues.

A similar effect also has magnetotherapy, which also stimulates the body to combat various diseases, improving brain and heart activities and removing pain concomitant in numbness in some pathologies.

And, of course, it is simply impossible to overestimate the benefit of the therapeutic massage when losing sensitivity. If numbness is not related to the development of some pathology in the human body, but is only the result of finding in an uncomfortable posture or wearing inappropriate shoes, massage is the only therapeutic method that allows you to remove the symptoms of numbness in short time.

Relaxing and therapeutic massage is also useful in numbness of the toes on the background of some pathologies, because it helps to safely and effectively remove muscle spasms and vessels, improves blood circulation and tissue trophics, relieves pain, returning sensitivity.

Useful for numbers of limbs and moderate physical exertion. Daily jogging, swimming and some exercises (compressing the squeezing of the toes, riding a rounded item stops, walking on socks and heels) will help not only to remove the symptoms of numbness, but also prevent this state in the future.

Methods of manual and hydrautherapy (leech treatment), acupuncture and reflexology, balneological baths, mud massage, transcutaneous / parcel electrostimulation, massage stones help improve the patient's condition and consolidate the result obtained from complex therapy for a long time.

Popular treatment with numbness

Popular treatment is measures and tools that will help weaken the manifestations of the numbers of the fingers on their own, without resorting to the help of doctors. But this does not mean at all that the use of people's experience should be uncontrolled and occur in return for medication.

Consider the folk recipes that allow you to remove the symptoms of numbness toes and strengthen the effect of pharmacy drugs that are designed to fight the main disease.

  • Recipe 1. Wrapping with honey. They are held for each non-novel finger separately. For this, the finger is made by honey, which is thoroughly rubbed into the skin, and then wrapping the segment of the fabric or bandage. Do it better for the night.
  • Recipe 2. Garlic lemon infusion. 1 Lemon and garlic head are crushed, poured 2 glasses (500 ml) of water and insist 4 days. Potted in the amount of infusion? glasses.
  • Recipe 3. Rubbing: Salted cucumbers and burning peppers. 2-3 cucumber cut into cubes and mixed with 3 pods of ground red peppers, add 500 ml of vodka and insist in a dark place for 7 days.

Recipe of Tibetan medicine. Pour hot water of such a temperature into a large bowl, which is able to endure. Lower the legs into it and put the bottom of the bowl with your fingers. After a few minutes, the sensitivity of the fingers is restored.

Do not forget about the treatment of herbs. When the fingertips are numbered, a positive action is wormwood, a dying, chicory, a buggy bog. The tincture of herbs on vodka or apple vinegar is used for therapeutic rubbing.

Homeopathy in the numbness of the toes

Treatment of the disease, which causes numbness of the toes, continues not one day, and this means that it will have to saturate its body with chemical compounds included in the composition of prescribed pharmaceutical drugs for a long period. You can resort to the means of traditional medicine, but by themselves they will not bring the desired recovery. It means that it makes sense to try the effective and safe funds that homeopathy offers us.

As mentioned, one of the mineral substances involved in the correction of nervous conductivity is zinc. Zincum Metallicum is a homeopathic preparation that fills the reserves of this trace element in the body. It is used in high dilutions, not less than 12th. A more accurate purpose can give a homeopath.

The same applies to potassium and calcium preparations: Kali Phosphoricum, which is used in 3 and 6 breeding, Calcarea phosphoryica (3, 6, 12 breeding), Calcium carbonicum (as prescribed by the doctor). For pain and numbness of the toes, magnesium preparations can also be assigned: Magnesium Carbonicum or Magnesium Phosphoricum.

With damage to the nervous and bone system, preparations from the TARENTULA HISPANICA spider or the teridion can be appointed. Dose of these drugs depend on the pathology at which they are applied. The first drug is recommended to be used in the 3rd dilution and above 2 times a week. Second doses can fluctuate.

The numbness of the limbs against the background of the impairment of peripheral blood circulation is treated with the help of the homeopathic preparation of Aesculus Compositum, which must be taken 3 times a day after meals. The medicine is produced in the form of droplets, the daily dose of it ranges from 3 to 10 drops, depending on the age of the patient. The drops are divorced in a minor amount of water, before swallowing them, it is recommended to hold them in the oral cavity.

With any nervous diseases, including the numbness of the toes on the backdrop of damage to the nerves, the positive effect is provided by the drug "Nerviev."

No matter how good and safe, any homeopathic preparation is your destination should produce a homeopath, and not the patient himself. Despite the practical absence of side effects, with the use of homeopathic remedies, some precautions will be observed, because any drug may not be so secure in the development of the reaction of hypersensitivity. And some drugs are not recommended to take up to a certain age or during periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Surgery

The numbness of the toes is a pathology, which requires mainly conservative treatment, which includes therapy with medication, homeopathic and folk remedies, physiotherapy, correction of behavior and lifestyle. Operational treatment in this situation is rarely applied and only due to the main disease caused by the permeation of the limbs. Such diseases include varicose veins, spinal hernia, oncological diseases of the spine.

For example, with varicose veins of veins, the doctor can resort to phlebectomy, which consists in surgical removal of damaged veins. When thrombosis veins may require the removal of blood clots that cause blood blocks.

The surgical path is carried out with the hernia of intervertebral disks, as well as with malignant neoplasms on the spine. Sometimes such an operation not only helps to remove the symptoms of the numbness of the legs, but also saves the patient's life.

In severe cases of frostbite of fingers or diabetes, when the purulent process is progressing on the site of the Russian Academy of Sciences and develops tissue necrosis, sometimes resort to finger amputation or footage.

All news Previous Next

Diseases of central and peripheral nervous systems and orthopedic problems often go hand in hand. Often one deviation causes another.

For example, tissue compression, vessels, leads to an acute or chronic disruption of trophic of nerve endings, which is just ends with pathological processes and manifestations.

Fingers on the legs can be not easy due to the complex lesion of the musculoskeletal system and tissues, which provide the conductivity of the signal from the head and spinal cord.

Not always such a symptom is a clear sign of the disease, the pathological process. Options may be several.

It makes sense to turn to a neurologist or an orthopedic and to undergo diagnosis under their control. If the cause of the whole injury is also a profile doctor for damage. At first, it is always suspected that the pathogenic nature of the disorder is always suspected. Only then look for something else.

Need treatment. Usually to restore the functions of the lower limbs takes up to several months.

It is assumed that there is a conservative therapy with medicines plus massage, physical education. The issue of the selection of the technique solves a specialist.

The mechanism of development of sensation

The basis of the pathological process is a group of factors. What specifically takes place in the clinical case - it is impossible to say without a special examination.

Among common pathogenetic mechanisms:

Compression of nerve fabrics

It is especially common. The classic version of the etiology of the disorder is the inflammatory process, osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine.

The disease develops at different speeds. It can end with a hernial disk protrusion, even greater compression and complete loss of sensitivity of one or immediately both legs, which will lead to disability.

Or, at a minimum, will require emergency treatment and multi-month rehabilitation.

Violation of local blood circulation

Accompanied by a change in the quality of nutritional fabrics. It is worth reminding that they require a lot of resources, because any deviations become noticeable instantly, in a matter of days and even hours.

Not always bleeding disorders are due to diseases. There are exceptions. For example, long-lasting stay in an uncomfortable posture during sleep.

Spinal cord disorders

It may be an independent disease or a problem of a secondary nature, after injuries, damage and other states. In some cases, the wines of everything dissipated sclerosis.

Sometimes tumors are found, they interfere with the normal carrying of a nervous pulse from the spinal cord. Next.

Inxication of the body

It is not so often found. So the poisonings of bromine, boron, lead, mercury and other chemical compounds are manifested.

Oddly enough, sensitivity disorders can be associated with improper use of certain medicines. As far as such a side effect is likely, the manufacturer usually indicates the annotation to the drug.

This is not a complete list. There are napatological factors. Whether it is a physical overvoltage, a stressful situation.

The issue of origin must be addressed first. Since without understanding the essence of the phenomenon, the treatment will not make any sense. It will remain fighting symptoms. It's useless.

It is worth contacting a neurologist. Then, for the need, to orthopedic, surgeon, traumatologist. What to do next - will tell a specialist.

Causes of numbness

Development factors are heterogeneous. You can call at least a dozen common perpetrators of the problem. Let's try to consider the main.

Osteochondrosis

Half of the world's population is susceptible to this cunning state. There is data that even more. The exact account is not yet known, because the statistics are far from all. Information only for developed countries.

The essence of the disease lies in the inflammation of soft tissues at the local level. Then the gradual degeneration, the destruction of the anatomical structures begins.

First of all, the disk suffers. Since the amortization is insufficient, the vertebrae is erased. This leads to even greater inflammation and damage to the circle. It is possible to break it only by starting treatment.

The lumbar-sacral department is involved most often, since it is the main load on it. A little less often suffers. With the compression of local nerve endings, which is responsible for the sensitivity of the legs, the lower limbs are just beginning to be no longer.

Osteochondrosis

Such symptoms from the fingers are most noticeable, since a huge number of receptors are concentrated here. Then discomfort applies to shin, caviar and even hips.

There are other symptoms: pulling pain, the inability to go normally, the weakness of muscles. But they appear slightly later or simultaneously with loss of sensitivity.

The treatment is engaged in orthopedists, traumatologists and neurologists.

First use medicines. Anti-inflammatory napleroid origin, chondroprotectors, painkillers.

Then, as soon as the process goes into a subacute phase - prescribe a leaf and massage, physiotherapy.

The reason why the fingers on the legs are eaten are the compression of vertebrate nerve roots, then the quality of the trophy, the conductivity of the signal and, finally, the limbs gradually lose sensitivity.

Attention:

The process is quite reversible if you begin treatment before.

Hernia

Continuation of osteochondrosis. When the therapy does not have time, the load on the disk is growing. At a certain point he simply does not stand and breaks.

Pulpose core, which is just possible to name the base of the disk, falls out, the shock absorbing structure is shifted. Thus, there is a violation of the normal state of the spinal segment.

spinal hernia

There is a pronounced inflammation, the patient is experiencing severe pain, limited in movement. The exacerbations can last up to several weeks, end unpredictable.

The compression of the spinal cord and paralysis of the lower body is quite possible. Reversible or not - depends on further action. If you have an operation for several days, the chances of restoring are good.

The reason why the fingers of the legs are elapse - the acute compression of the nerve tissues, the spinal cord by a modified disk, which interferes with the normal conductivity of the signal to the lower limbs.

Spinal intermittent chromota

Correction of hernia is usually conservative. Doctors choose the tactics of dynamic observation. Working with patients like a similar profile is an area of ​​activity. Neurosurgeon. .

Also applied anti-inflammatory, glucocorticoids, also painkillers. Since drugs need a lot, there is a risk of gastritis for oral administration.

For this reason, the drug is introduced intravenously, in the form of complex droppers. This reduces the burden on the patient's body.

As soon as everything comes to the relative norm, prescribe physiotherapy, massage (carefully and not always), also physical education to strengthen the local muscles.

With acute flow when it comes to possible disability, conduct an emergency operation. The disc is replaced with artificial.

Speed ​​Recovery Operation

Then takes up to several months of rehabilitation. As a rule, the forecasts are good if the patient falls into the hands of a skillful surgeon.

Injury

Spin damage - initially a very negative point, the variant of the pathological process. As the vertebrae is quite fragile and poorly restored. If you multiply it on the likelihood of brain damage, everything becomes and worse.

It makes sense as quickly as possible to refer to the traumatologist. Complete MRI, radiography. Only then, if there are no dangerous states, you can safely exhale and begin treatment of the pathological process.

There are such damage as bruises, partial or full spinal fractures. There are no more dangerous injuries of bone structures, how much disruption of the integrity of the brain.

Spine injury

Against the background of injuries, the numbness of the toes is happening due to the compression of the spinal cord, it is usually developing rapidly and in a matter of hours-days it grows up to the full loss of sensitivity, paralysis or, at least a paresis. The condition is not comic.

Spinal-channel narrowing

Treatment is engaged in both traumatologists and neurosurgeons. Prescribed anti-inflammatory and painkillers. Patients wear corsets, necessarily limiting mobility.

The mode must be strictly observed. Otherwise, there are risks of complications.

Spinal cord tumor, spine

There are more often than it may seem. Classic neoplasia is ependima. Education from the shells, which conclude nerve cells.

As a rule, they develop just in the area of ​​the horse-tail. That is, a special accumulation of nerve fibers, which is localized in the lumbar-sacral zone, reaches the berries, hips.

ponytail

It is possible to damage the sedlication nerve, which brings even more discomfort, since the structure is very large and sensitive.

Fortunately, really highly malignant formations are almost not formed. Mixopapillary ependimomas are well treatable.

Attention:

Risk represents only the operation itself. Recurrements are less than 3% of cases. There are all the chances of full recovery.

There are other forms of oncology. For example, formation of bone tissue. Sarcoma have much more negative forecasts, but the possibility of a favorable outcome is still high.

Oncologists are engaged in treatment, neurosurgeons. It does not make sense to wait, since the location of neoplasia is very delicate.

If you do nothing, the compression of nerve tissues and paralysis will happen. Conduct operation. Malignant structures are suited, resort to chemotherapy.

If the correction began early, the chances are very high. It is possible to fully recover.

Poisoning, intoxication

Mainly suffer patients working in harmful enterprises. There are other categories of patients, such as those living in unfavorable areas.

Basically, mercury, lead, pesticides, pesticide compounds, and nitrate fertilizers, lead to damage to nerve fibers. Also volatile substances, couples. Everyone can face the problem. It is enough to collect mushrooms in a polluted forest.

The reason why the fingers are eaten on the legs, lies in artificial blocking of the conductivity of signals at the molecular level. It is urgent to deal with the condition.

Incication is treated in hospital . To eliminate the pathological condition, there are specific antidotes, saline and other infusion drugs. Conduct hardware blood purification: Plasmapheres .

Plasmapheres

When the state comes to normal, you need to check internal organs. Not only nervous tissues, but also body systems. Heart, liver, kidney.

Diabetes

Classic endocrine profile disease. Formally, it is a spontaneous increase in blood glucose levels or a decrease in tissue sensitivity to insulin (with the same result).

All organs suffer. Since glucose crystals damage vessels, interfere with normal metabolism, local and overall blood flow are disturbed. Including in the spinal column area, which is the cause of numbness numbers of the lower extremities.

Diabetes vessels

The second possible mechanism of the pathological process is Atherosclerosis arteries of foot . The blockage of the lumen by cholesterol plaques or a sharp narrowing as a result of spasm. Therefore, local food is lost, and the nerve fibers themselves suffer from the lower extremities themselves.

The task is to eliminate the obstacle. Otherwise Supprichting sclerosis will first lead to loss of sensitivity, and then to gangrene, tissue necrosis.

Supported-atherosclerosis

Trophic-ulcers

The treatment is engaged in endocrinologists. We prescribe a diet without fast carbohydrates. No sugars, other things. Inside the situation, insulin is introduced to eliminate the attack.

The disease accompanies a person all his life. It needs to be learn to coexist.

Infectious lesions of the back

Basically, the spinal tuberculosis is represented. A little less often encounter nonypical forms of encephalitis. For example, after the bite of a carrier tick.

The state is very dangerous, in a matter of weeks leads to a persistent irreversible loss of sensitivity of the lower extremities. With subacute and chronic diseases on the development of disability takes up to several years. In any case, it is impossible to bring to extremes.

Assign antibiotics, funds from viruses, anti-inflammatory. Specific preparations, immunomodulators. It makes sense to undergo a full course of treatment in the hospital in order to correct the therapy scheme on time.

Positive predictions provided early begin treatment. Otherwise, it is likely to varying degrees of sensitivity in the middle and long-term perspective.

Bekhtereva's disease

Spondlipritis, mainly, hereditary, genetic origin. It is quite rare. If you do nothing, quickly leads to disability.

The essence of the disorder is a rapid inflammatory process. The result is the formation of ankyloses - vertebral splicing areas, bone tissue and reduction of mobility. Then - full loss.

Bekhtereva disease

The nerve endings suffer in passion and therefore a person stops moving normally, his own legs feel bad. Fingers are neglected almost from the very beginning of the pathological process.

Attention:

Basically, critical changes begin in adolescent or early young age up to 35 years. But there are exceptions.

The only reliable method to avoid complications is to do MRI once every 1-2 years. Especially if there is a tendency to the disease. Since the lumbar-sacral region is mainly suffering, and it is necessary to evaluate it.

Stroke

Acute violation of cerebral blood flow. It occurs against the background of hypertension, atherosclerosis, spontaneously after factor-provocateur. Leads to the elimination of brain tissues.

stroke-cerebeller-in-result hypoplasia

The result becomes a resistant neurological deficit. If motor centers are damaged, for example, in frontal fractions, not to avoid sensitivity loss. Complete or partial - depends on the exact localization of the focus and the degree of violation.

Lobster bark atrophy

Symptoms are general and local. The score of possible signs is tens.

In detail signs of stroke are described in this article , and the pre-sulti state - here .

Neurologists are engaged in the treatment of the pathological process. Patient necessarily placed in the profile compartment. At first - in intensive care. Preparations of groups are used Nootropov , cerebrovascular. Diuretic to prevent Motor's swelling .

Then, after the correction of the acute state, is looking for the cause and eliminate it. Also prescribe a rehabilitation course ( More details ).

The treatment of disorder takes up to several months. Another year and a half goes to restore.

As a rule, foci of the paresis, paralysis on the background of stroke minimal. For example, with an acute violation of cerebral blood flow, a finger on the leg is not easy, because a separate path of transmission of a nervous impulse is affected. With extensive strokes, everything is much worse. Forecasts, respectively, too.

Napatological factors

The described moments relate to disease. But not always numbness characterizes this or that diagnosis. Natural moments are possible.

What exactly:

  • Stress. As a psychosomatic manifestation.
  • Physical overload. After intensive training, temporary tingling, the sensation of itching, insufficient tissue sensitivity is possible.
  • Smoking. Not so much natural factor as subjective reason. If you refuse cigarettes, everything will come back in a matter of days.
  • Using uncomfortable shoes. Because the bloodstream is disturbed, it can a small thumb, a little finger, or the whole feet.
  • Wrong pose during sleep. Legs, what is called, check. This is not dangerous.
  • Supercooling limbs. Because the vessels are sharply narrowed, the Tronof is broken.

These states, as a rule, are not real danger to health and life.

Although smoking, the consumption of alcohol, drugs, very soon end with persistent atherosclerosis. And this is a direct path to necrosis (gangrene) and amputation.

gangrene-tissue legs

Do not risk it.

Required surveys

To determine the loss of sensitivity, the doctor conducts a series of functional tests: including pain perception. But this is not enough. You need to look for the exact cause of the disorder.

Among possible diagnostic techniques:

  • Patient poll for complaints, symptoms.
  • Collect anamnesis.
  • Miography. To understand whether the cuttleness of muscles has been preserved.
  • Blood tests for hormones, sugar, general and biochemical tests.
  • X-ray spine.
  • MRI, CT back, brain. Including with a contrasting amplification to reveal tumor processes.
  • Routine techniques to which the doctors resort to place.

The task is solved under the control of the neurologist, a profile surgeon. After a thorough examination, you can begin therapy.

The numbness of the toes is a non-specific symptom of diseases of both orthopedic, endocrine and cardiological profiles and natural states.

If this violation is preserved for at least a few days, you need to consult a doctor.

Each person at least once in his life came across the numbers. Most often, this problem is temporary: you just have to change the pose or to shore more comfortable shoes, as discomfort will immediately pass. However, in some cases, the impairment of sensitivity in the lower limbs is provoked by serious pathologies that require medical intervention. So what are the reasons why your legs do you? How to understand when this condition is dangerous, and when not? What if you have impaired sensitivity, burning and tingling in the fingers, footsteps or caviar? You will find answers to these questions in our article.

Non legs
Numbness in the legs

Etiology

The reasons for numbness of the legs are most often consistent with the blood circulation and the functioning of the nervous system, as well as in problems with the spine. In these cases, there is a paresthesia - spontaneously arising a feeling of tingling, burning or crawling on the skin of goosers.

The reasons

The numbness of the lower limbs can have both pathological and safe prerequisites. The first of these includes the following:

  • Osteochondrosis and root syndrome. Osteochondrosis is characterized by degenerative changes affecting the vertebrae and intervertebral discs. In this case, the instability of the spinal segment is developing, leading to the infringement of spinal nerves, followed by the formation of the root syndrome (radiculopathy). Most often, such a phenomenon is observed in the lumbosacraliary, provoking pain syndrome and various sensory disorders, one of which is weakness and numbness in the legs.
Osteochondrosis of the foot
Osteochondrosis: one of the reasons for numbers
  • Intervertebral hernia. This condition is a consequence of unbearable osteochondrosis. It is represented by the displacement of the vertebral disk relative to the body of the vertebra. Depending on the degree of displacement, the prolapse, protrusia, extrusion and sequestration of the disk are isolated. At the first two stages of permanent numbered legs, it is usually not observed, while extrusion and sequestration are characterized by the development of radiculopathy with severe pain syndrome and changing sensory functions.
  • Tunnel syndrome. Eliminate the upper and lower tunneling syndrome. In the first case, there is a violation of sensitivity in the field of the top head of the Mulobers. In the second case, there is numbness of the toes, feet and stop.
  • Supported atherosclerosis. This pathology is characterized by the presence of lipid sediments (plaques) on the walls of large and medium arteries. Due to the formation of plaques, the narrowing of the vacuum of the vessels occurs, followed by a violation of hemodynamics, which leads to a strong numbness of the legs and intersecting chromotype.

Opinion expert

When depositing in the lipid plaque, calcium salts there is a danger of developing occlusion (full blockage of the lumen of the vessel). This condition is extremely dangerous to health, as it can lead to the necrosis of the covered area of ​​the artery.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis. In this case, inflammation of the synovial shell of the joint with the erosion of cartilage and the weakening of intra-articular ligaments is observed. The disease is striking the large and small joints of the hands and legs, delivering a material to a significant discomfort and fighting his movement. In addition to pain, people with rheumatoid arthritis often complain about numbness of legs.
  • Diabetic neuropathy. This condition is a complication of diabetes. In addition to other signs, it is manifested in the form of numbness of the leg, which is caused by the defeat of the peripheral departments of the nervous system.
Varicose numbness
Symptoms of varicose feet: numb
  • Varicose. Pathological changes in hemodynamics of the lower extremities in varicose veins are caused by the nature of the blood flow, the failures in the operation of muscle pumps, reflux and reduction of vessel elasticity. At the initial stage (stage of compensation), any complaints, in addition to a more noticeable vascular grid, are usually absent. If the disease passes into the stage of subcompensation, patients note a small swelling, paresthesia and a feeling of gravity in the lower limbs, increasing by the end of the day. Many people, patients with varicose veins, complain about night cramps, and also on the fact that they have no legs in a dream.

Opinion expert

If a person has a sharp appearance of acute pain in the lower limb, the change in its coloring with normal on a blue, pronounced swelling, an increase in local (less often common) body temperature, numbness of the leg, this is a reason to seek medical attention as soon as possible. All this is signs of acute thrombosis, which often develops against the background of varicose veins.

  • Lack of vitamins and chemical elements. One of the reasons for the development of numbers of the toes, stop and ICR is the deficiency of vitamin B12, as well as macro and trace elements (sodium, magnesium, potassium). These substances are responsible for carrying out nerve impulses, so their disadvantages are capable of calling paresthesia.
  • Oncological processes. The growth of the tumor located in the spine or directly on one of the lower extremities can lead to squeezing the nerve components and blood vessels, thereby provoking the reduction in sensitivity and numbness of the legs.

!

The numbness of one limb can be caused by a serious pathological condition that threatens human life is a hemorrhagic or ischemic stroke.

In addition to these pathologies, the numbers of the legs can be provoked by quite harmless causes. It may be the following:

  • Long immobilization (for example, in lying patients).
  • Long-flowing in an uncomfortable posture. For this reason, some people complain about numbness of legs in the morning after sleep in an inconvenient position.
  • Supercooling.
  • We wear close clothes and shoes.
  • Pregnancy and an increase in the increase in the load on the lower limbs, as well as the violation of blood circulation.
  • Hormonal restructuring of the body due to menopause.
Friend of foot
Friend numbers may be accompanied by migraine or dizziness

Symptomatics

If the sensitivity impairment is not caused by non-temporal factors (for example, wearing high-heeled shoes), and systemic pathologies, leg numbers are rarely an independent symptom. It is usually accompanied by other signs, among which it is worth highlighting the following:

  • Pain and violation of the mobility of the spine.
  • Dizziness, headaches, migraines.
  • Violation of coordination and orientation in space.
  • Fainting.
  • Skin itching, swelling and changing tissue trophics
