Muscle ache after stroke

My partner had a stroke 2 months ago, he has use of his arm and leg but some days the aching is unbearable. Is this normal?

Hi,

It is good that he has recovered the functions of his arm and leg. Although it is uncommon to have severe pain on the affected sites. The usual presentationa re numbness and loss of function. Over-the-counter pain medications may help with the pain. But if it persists, have this evaluated further by his doctors to rule out other causes such as nerve-problem or musculoskeletal causes.

Take care and keep us posted.
