What Could Cause Painful Spasms In A Stroke Survivor?

I’m am obese and have two strokes. Because of the strokes I don’t move much however I do keep going and am on my feet a lot. Im sweating a lot because I take cymbalta. The question is that I’m having severe muscle spasm often . Mosrly in my legs around the knee but so time it feels like my whole body is in a spasm. I’ve had extensive tests done on my heart and have been told that my heart is fine. What could be causing these painful spasms?

Hello,

As these spasms are due to abnormal gait and abnormal biomechanics of the joint. Which is leading to muscle stress and strain in various abnormal joint position.

Doing physiotherapy will help. Exercise will be induced towards the correction of the biomechanics of the joints and muscles.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
