Hand and leg cramps
After having total knee replacement of his right knee about three months ago, my husband has started having cramps in his hands and legs. The leg cramps are nothing new, but the hand cramps are concerning him. They are coming very freqently.
There are many reasons for cramping pain and I don't think I will be able to advise you as to the cause. As a first step, you should discuss it with your primary doctor or neurologist (if you already have a neurologist).
