Cause??: The most common cause of rickets is severe vitamin d deficiency. Muscle spasms associated with rickets are usually because of low calcium which can happen with early vitamin d treatment. Kids often need extra calcium. With muscle spasms and rickets, your doctor needs to be made aware asap because if the cause is low calcium that may be very dangerous and requires immediate treatment.
