Thank you for posting your query.
is a major cause of disability
. However, your mother would show gradual improvement in her weakness over time, with good physiotherapy
Spontaneous movements of the paralysed side can occur due to what is called reflex movements. Sometimes, tone in the affected limb can increase, which can cause flexor spasms
. Both these situations are normal and there is no need to worry.
In rare cases, there could be focal fits in the affected side, where there would be jerky movements. This condition requires medications.
Please talk to her neurologist
, who would be able to sort this out.
