Myasthenia Gravis

Hand and leg cramps

Question:

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.

Answer:
