When something goes wrong, the body sends signals in various ways. For example, blurred vision is one of the early symptoms of diabetes. So are the hands. American nutrition and health information media ‘It’s Not That’ introduced health red flags that appear on the hand.

△ Arthritis

If you have rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis), abnormal signs appear in your hands. When a nerve in the hand is compressed or damaged by inflammation, the hand feels painful and numb, possibly rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of autoimmune disease. This occurs when the tissue surrounding the joint, called the synovial membrane, becomes inflamed. If the joints are stiff and difficult to move for more than a month, especially if the symptoms are severe in the morning, it is good to see a doctor.

In addition, a red signal is lit in the hand when osteoarthritis, a disease in which inflammation and pain occur due to damage to the bones and ligaments that make up the joint due to damage or degenerative change of the cartilage that protects the joint. The most common symptom is knee pain, but it often appears first in the hand. If your hands hurt and your knuckles are getting thicker, don’t neglect it and go to the hospital.

△Parkinson’s disease

Hands shake when fatigue accumulates. The hands may also tremble due to lack of nutrition. The problem is that it can be an early symptom of Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis. Parkinson’s disease refers to a disease in which movement disorders appear due to the destruction of dopamine-based neurons in the center of the brain.

Multiple sclerosis is a type of autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues. The recurrence and remission are repeated in various places in the central nervous system, and the symptoms improve without disability after a recurrence in the beginning, but the disability may remain if the recurrence is repeated over time.

△ Lung disease

When lung diseases such as pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis, or lung cancer occur, clubbing symptoms are often seen. Clubbing is a condition in which the tip of the finger becomes flat and thick, turning into a club shape. In addition to swelling of the fingertips and feverish redness, the nails can become too fragile or bend sharply downwards. In addition to the phenomenon of clubbing, if you have a cough and shortness of breath, it is better to be tested immediately.
