#KnowTheFeeling: What Your Kutob Might Not Tell You About Pamamanhid and Tusok-Tusok

#KnowTheFeeling: What Your Kutob Might Not Tell You About Pamamanhid and Tusok-Tusok

How do you feel about this story?


Imagine this: it’s a typical day, you’re holding the steering wheel, driving down your usual route, when, all of a sudden, you’re forced to pull over as feelings of pamamanhid (numbness) or tusok-tusok (tingling) creep into your hands.


Or perhaps, you’re in the middle of a workday, checking your emails, when out of the blue, the same prickly feeling disrupts your focus. Or maybe you’re indulging in your favorite pastime, cooking or tending to your beloved plants, when suddenly a numbing sensation, like an invisible glove  covering your hand, gets in the way.


Feels familiar?


When feeling pamamanhid and tusok-tusok, don’t leave it to kutob lang

As with many Filipinos and like other times before, your kutob (strong intuition) probably simply told you to brush these nagging feelings aside, reassuring you that these are nothing more than signs of aging or fatigue.


While listening to our kutob, a cultural habit in which many Filipinos deeply trust, had served you well in many situations, it’s important to note that these seemingly insignificant feelings could also be symptoms of a deeper underlying issue – peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage, which could stop you from the way you feel life.

#KnowTheFeeling of Nerve Damage

Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the peripheral nerves, responsible for transmitting signals and information between the brain and the rest of the body, sustain nerve damage. This condition can affect the entire body, manifesting in various symptoms such as pamamanhid and tusok-tusok, and may impact the things that we love to do.


Last 2022, a research conducted by P&G revealed that many Filipinos experience occasional nerve discomfort as they age. That’s why Vitamins B1+B6+B12 (Neurobion) are urging Filipinos to stay on top of their nerve health.


When it comes to peripheral neuropathy, early detection is key to improve disease outcome and manage the condition more effectively. So, if you start experiencing recurring pamamanhid and tusok-tusok in your hands, don’t hesitate to #KnowTheFeeling and consult with your doctor.


You can also ask the friendly chatbot, Neuri,  to help understand the symptoms associated with peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage. And never forget to consult doctors about your symptoms. They can provide proper diagnosis and recommend the best course of action, including how incorporating Vitamins B1+B6+B12 (Neurobion) into your daily routine could be beneficial for your nerve health.


Treat Nerve Damage at The Root

Deficiency of Vitamin B is often linked to nerve damage symptoms. Studies show that taking neurotropic B vitamins—Vitamins B1, B6, and B12—play pivotal roles in supporting nerve health, and helping to relieve pamamanhid and tusok-tusok:

  • Vitamin B1 provides energy for your nerves
  • Vitamin B6 assists in signal transmission, and
  • Vitamin B12 aids in nerve regeneration.


All these are present in Vitamins B1+B6+B12 (Neurobion) to help stop recurring pamamanhid and tusok-tusok from bothering you again, with regular intake and proper diet and exercise.
