This morning my wife's hand became involuntarily clenched into a very tight fist. She was only able to unclench it after the hand had been massaged for quite a long time. She says she felt no pain but that is not unusual as she is on a very high dose of amitriptyline to control the very high level of emotionality which in her case came as a freebe with psp (diagnosed 5.5 years ago). This drug is also a pain killer for nerve pain so she rarely seems to feel pain. Her neck and shoulder area is somewhat scrunched up on the same side with the illness and we have noticed recently that the same arm has sometimes moved strangely almost as though the muscle is in spasm.This mornings episode with the hand was new and a little bit scary.
Have any of you had any experience of this with your partners or better still have any tips as to what can be done.
