My right side feels like a dead weight when I get out of bed. It isn't numb, but my leg drags, I can't lift my arm and I don't have any grip in my hand. Once I get up and move around it starts to go away. What could be causing this?

Customer: I have some swelling in my hand. When I move around the symptoms get better.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have high blood pressure.
