Thank you for posting your query.

The most common reason for hemi-pain (pain involving one half of the body) is a chemical disturbance in the opposite side of brain, that is, right side of brain in your case. The specific area involved is the thalamus.

However, in some cases, there may be a lack of blood flow or infection in the same region.

So, if symptoms are persisting or increasing in severity, a brain scan may be done to rule out the above mentioned conditions.

As of now, there is no need to worry.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Thank you for getting back.

There is no need of medicines now. However, if the pain is severe, you may take pregabalin capsules.

Regular walking and exercises will be helpful, though not specific for this problem.

Please keep in touch.
