Thanks for your query.
According to your symptoms it looks like there is compression of nerve in cervical [neck area] spine. This leads to numbness in your hand.
Temporarily, please follow the below mentioned measures to get some symptomatic relief -
- avoid any movements that produces pain
- do not use bulky pillow underneath your head while sleeping as this position will produce more compression of the nerves
- Use a Soft collar which allow the muscles of the neck to rest and limit neck motion. This can help decrease pinching of nerve roots with movement. Soft collars should only be worn for short periods
of time, because long-term wear can decrease the strength of neck muscles.
- Analgesic (diclofenac
& lornoxicam) and muscle relaxant
(thiocolchicoside) combination medicines will provide symptomatic relief from pain & muscle spasm. Neurotropic vitamins like METHYLCOBALAMINE (activated Vit B12) or PREGABALIN
will help in alleviating the neuropathic pain
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
