Depends: Unless you have an underlying neurologic disorder, you do not have hypotonia.

Curious question: Hypotonia is a physical finding based on exam. Why would we be able to determine this out of the blue without an exam ? I believe you are misusing the term and making assumptions that we cannot comment on.

Hard to say: Is this part of a condition? Can u excercise? If you have recurrent pain issues coming from the body an snri would help, like cymblata 30mg but unsure if you are out of shape or have a muscle disease.
