The reason behind the numbness of the fingers
Russian endocrinologist Alexey Gitu declared that paresthesia of the fingers is the most common sign of anemia and heart disease.
Paresthesia of the fingers indicates anemia, because in case of blood diseases the level of red blood cells or hemoglobin decreases, which leads to a decrease in the amount of oxygen, and therefore a person feels tingling and paresthesia in the fingers of his hands.
“The blood supply is disturbed, including in the hands, as the blood does not flow in the required amount to the fingers, which makes them numb,”the doctor said.
He added: the fingers of people with a disorder in the functioning of the endocrine glands can also go numb, ” patients with a disorder in the functioning of the endocrine glands often complain of paresthesia of the fingers of the hands.
The endocrinologist explained that the other reason is a lack of vitamins, if paresthesia of the fingers is accompanied by severe headaches, it may be a sign that precedes the occurrence of a stroke.
He pointed out that paresthesia is a serious symptom that should not be ignored and neglected, because it often precedes myocardial infarction, and if paresthesia is caused by physical damage and bruises, you should consult a doctor specialized in wounds and injuries.
