Tightness in Right Calf Post Stroke
by: Jerry Allocco

5 years ago I had a CVA during open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve. The valve was eaten away by a staff infection. During the surgery a piece of "the moss" (doctors term) broke off, traveled to my brain and caused a "shower of strokes" (physiologist determined this). My left arm and leg were effected. Physical Therapy helped me greatly in my recovery. The most noticeable
lingering affect is a tightness in my RIGHT calf.
Lately I have been experiencing flashes of pain and a little weakness in my right knee. Is it possible that the nerve impulse is trying to work its way through the knee joint? I know how lucky I am!
