Reasons for numbness of feet and hands

Everyone is faced with numbness of feet and hands from time to time.

If numbness in the hands and feet has happened to you more than once, it may not be just a coincidence. Various reasons can cause numbness, and some of them are not at all as minor as they might seem at first glance.

The fact is that the limbs are a kind of terminal station along the route of the nervous and circulatory systems. If any problems appear in the hands or feet, this means that either nerve impulses or blood do not reach the end of its route.

Blood carries with it the oxygen and nutrients that tissues need. And impulses are transmitted along with the nervous system that provides control of the body.

Numbness feet and hands signal exactly that blood and nerve impulses are lost along the way.

The most common cause is pinched blood vessels or pinched nerve fibers.

Reasons for numbness of feet and hands:

Lack of vitamins. Lack of vitamin B12 can provoke peripheral neuropathy.

Type 2 diabetes onset. Most often, this neuropathy in diabetes affects the legs, not the arms. Peripheral neuropathy. It affects the nerves in the limbs that are farthest from the brain and spinal cord.

Infections. Among them are quite dangerous, for example, chickenpox, viral herpes, HIV, Lyme disease.

Toxins. In some cases, numbness and tingling in the limbs can be a symptom of poisoning with salts of heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, mercury.

Autoimmune diseases. In the early stages, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis can also manifest themselves as numbness in the feet and hands.

Alcoholism and smoking. Alcohol abuse can provoke alcoholic neuropathy, and long-term smoking negatively affects the blood supply to blood vessels and the work of peripheral nerves.
