There are tiny muscles in your hands called lumbricals. Apparently my stroke palm was super tight. My doctor injected them with Botox — Zop! Eek! Not fun. They do seem looser now.

Anyone have similar problems?

    Yes, I had botox injectuions in my left arm and then did lots of exercises. Now my arm is pretty good. Almost 10 years post injury I am now getting botox injections in my left leg to combat the spasticity. I can handle the calf injections but the one shot in my left shin is uber challenging!!

    Botox doesn’t really work for me. My PMR has us trying myo-bloc. We are playing around with dosage. MY PT thinks I should do both Baclofen and myo-bloc. Spasticity is the worst! i’m hoping it’ll help though.

    I had botox injections in my left arm and hand. didn’t help a great deal, but as more time passed, I have no spasticity now but also no function, I do however have sensation. My hand is now no longer tight but I still cannot open it…It’s relaxed but not functional, so it’s a lazy handand not painful which is a blessing. M
