The Right Foot Moves By Itself?
Good evening I want to ask. What causes the feet to move on their own? I am not feeling well now and my legs move on their own after taking the medicine (lacodin, lapifed, methylprednizolone). Is this the medicinal effect or how?
Hello good afternoon Mrrizka.
Unconscious limb movements can be normal or indicate certain conditions or diseases. If the movement only occurs occasionally, then it is still considered normal, it can be caused by muscle fatigue. However, if it happens repeatedly or continuously it can be caused by:
dystonia condition, namely disruption of muscle movement so that the muscles contract repeatedly. The cause can be unknown, it could be due to nervous system disorders, anti-seizure drugs and medication for mental disorders, etc. restless leg syndrome (RLS), is a condition where the sensation of discomfort in the foot and an irresistible urge to move it occurs. These symptoms generally appear at night when a person is resting, causing difficulty sleeping at night. The cause of this condition is not known with certainty, but it is mentioned that genetic factors (heredity), alcohol use, caffeine consumption, neurological disorders, etc., also contribute to the cause. electrolyte imbalances, especially hypocalcemia (low calcium levels in the bones) Parkinson's disease extrapyramidal effects, which are side effects of certain drugs, usually anti-psychotic drugs (drugs for mental disorders). etc.
You should check with a neurologist if the complaints you are experiencing occur repeatedly and continue for a long time. The doctor will do questions and answers about complaints that will help to make a diagnosis, perform a physical examination (especially a special examination of the nerves), and if needed the doctor will suggest additional examinations such as blood lab tests, MRI, etc.
Regarding the medicines you are currently taking, namely:
lacoldin: contains Paracetamol 500mg, phenylpropanolamine HCl 12.5 mg, dextromethorphan HBr 15 mg, and Chlorpheniramine meleate 2 mg Lapifed: contains Tripolidine HCl 2.5 mg and Pseudoephedrine HCl 60 mg Methylprednisolone To date we have not found that these drugs include into drugs that can result in involuntary movements.
I hope this helps.
Greetings, dr. Denisa
