Swedish term or phrase: kumpigt
Jag rör min kropp mycket kumpigt.

This is on a medical questionnaire. Is this a typo? Any help would be gladly appreciated.

Explanation:
Yes 'kumpigt' is a typo. The correct word is 'klumpigt'. It means 'clumsily' or 'awkwardly'

I am 99% certain anyway. Hope this helps.

Jag rör min kropp mycket klumpigt = I move my body very clumsy


Explanation:
The person could have difficulties to move legs and arms and to coordinate movements, they could drop things very easily when they grab something etc. For example a drunk person could have difficulties to move, a person with Parkingsons disease have probably also difficulties to move.
