Recent pons stroke: now muscle spasms, tremors

My client had a stoke in the pons in march.  He has crs, blind, deaf, cp, diabetes, and other things.  He is able to nod his head to tell us yes or no, but that is the only communication we have with him.  He has been having episodes where all his muscles tense up and he has tremors, sometimes he also sweats and he seems to be short of breath.  this can go on for a short while or on and off through out the day. It is a mystery to us.  At first we thoughtit was because he was constipated, then we thought he was in pain.  Sometimes we seem to guess right.  But I'm wondering if this sounds like it could be anything else or possibly a common thing after a stroke?  Any ideas?  There is not any research that I can find to help us out.
