9. Gangguan pencernaan


Adapun hal-hal yang Anda bisa  lakukan untuk mencegah bau mulut adalah:

  1. Melakukan penyikatan gigi dengan teknik yang tepat dan optimal dengan pasta gigi ber-fluor, serta melakukan penyikatan lidah.
  2. Menggunakan agen anti bakteri untuk rongga mulut, yaitu obat kumur klorheksidin (namun tidak boleh digunakan dalam waktu panjang secara terus menerus).
  3. Merangsang aliran air ludah dengan cara banyak makan buah yang berserat dan sayuran hijau, banyak mengkonsumsi air mineral atau dapat menggunakan obat kumur baking soda.

8 Penyakit yang ditandai Kesemutan (selesai)

3. Penyakit jantung

Kesemutan tak hanya akibat neuropati tekanan, tetapi karena komplikasi jantung dengan sarafnya. Pada pasien jantung yang sedang menjalani operasi pemasangan klep, terdapat bekuan darah yang menempel. Bekuan itu bisa terbawa aliran darah ke otak, sehingga terjadi serebral embolik.

Bila sumbatan di otak mengenai daerah yang mengatur sistem sensorik, si penderita akan merasakan kesemutan sebelah. Jika daerah yang mengatur sistem motorik juga terkena, kesemutan akan disertai kelumpuhan.

4. Infeksi tulang belakang

Ini menyebabkan bagian tubuh dari pusar ke bawah tak dapat digerakkan. Penderita tak dapat mengontrol buang air kecil. Buang air besar pun sulit. Penyakit ini dinamakan mielitis (radang sumsum tulang belakang). Tingkat kesembuhan tergantung pada kerusakannya. Bisa sembuh sebagian, tetapi ada juga yang lumpuh.

5. Rematik

Penyakit ini bisa menimbulkan kesemutan atau rasa tebal. Dalam hal ini saraf terjepit akibat sendi pada engsel, misalnya sendi pergelangan tangan, berubah bentuk. Gejala kesemutan biasanya hilang sendiri bila rematik sembuh.

6. Spasmofilia (tetani)

Gejala kesemutan juga bisa merupakan tanda penyakit spasmofilia (tetani). Penyakit ini timbul karena kadar ion kalsium dalam darah berkurang. Penyebabnya adalah menurunnya tegangan karbondioksida dalam paru-paru. Gejala lain : kejang pada tungkai, sulit tidur, emosi labil, takut, lemah, sakit kepala sebelah atau migrain, dan hilang kesadaran.

7. Guillain-barre syndrome

Kesemutan bisa jadi salah satu indikasi penyakit ini. Ditandai gejala demam tinggi, batuk, dan sesak napas. Juga diikuti rasa kesemutan dan kebas. Kesemutan biasanya terasa di sekujur tubuh, khususnya pada ujung jari kaki dan tangan karena virus menyerang sistem saraf tepi.

Bila keadaan itu tidak segera diatasi, serangan akan berlanjut ke organ vital. Akibatnya, penderita merasa sesak napas dan lumpuh di seluruh tubuh.

8. Cytomegalovirus (CMV)

Ada kesemutan yang didahului flu berat. Kesemutan akan menghebat mulai dari ujung jari, menjalar hingga ke pusar. Penderita bisa hanya merasa kebas atau sampai sulit berjalan, berarti sumsum tulang belakang kena radang. Ini akibat serangan virus, biasanya cytomegalovirus.

Computer Class

8 Penyakit yang Ditandai Kesemutan (serie 1)

Kebanyakan orang pernah mengalami kesemutan kala duduk bersila terlalu lama  atau tertidur dengan tangan bertindih kepala. Kondisi ini juga terjadi saat tekanan itu berlanjut tepat  pada saraf. Namun, kesemutan akan hilang bila tekanan sudah tidak ada lagi.

Kesemutan juga bisa menjadi indikasi banyak penyakit, seperti diabetes militus, hipertensi, saraf terjepit, gangguan aliran darah pada pembuluh darah tepi, maupun gangguan darah. Ada kalanya  pada mereka yang belum diketahui mengidap diabetes,  kesemutan dapat menjadi gejala awal diketahui diabetes.

Paresthesia atau kesemutan kronis sering merupakan simtom dari penyakit neurologist atau trauma kerusakan saraf. Penyebabnya  adalah gangguan yang mengaruhi sistem saraf pusat seperti stroke dan stroke mini, multiple skerosis, mielitis transversa, dan ensefalitis.

Tumor maupun lesi vascular yang menekan otak atau sumsum tulang juga bisa menimbulkan paresthesia.. sindrom saraf seperti sindrom saluran carpal (CTS) bisa merusak saraf perifer dan menyebabkan paresthesia diiringi rasa nyeri.

Berikut ini sejumlah penyakit yang ditandai oleh gejala kesemutan.

1. Diabetes mellitus (DM)

Pada pasien DM, kesemutan merupakan gejala kerusakan pada pembuluh darah. Akibatnya, darah yang mengalir di ujung-ujung saraf berkurang. Kondisi ini dapat diatasi dengan mengendalikan kadar gula darah secara ketat, juga mengonsumsi obat seperti  gabapentin, vitamin  B1 dan B12.

2. Stroke

Kesemutan dapat jadi tanda stroke ringan. Biasanya ditandai sumbatan pada pembuluh darah di otak yang menyebabkan kerusakan saraf setempat. Gejala lain yang muncul, rasa kebas separuh badan, lumpuh separuh badan, buta sebelah mata, sukar berbicara, pusing, penglihatan ganda dan kabur.

Gejala berlangsung beberapa menit atau 24 jam. Biasanya terjadi waktu tidur atau baru bangun. Kondisi ini harus ditangani karena bisa berkembang menjadi stroke berat.
