Dehydration: Common causes of muscle spasms are dehydration and not having the correct vitamin/minerals around. I suggest drinking 6-8 glasses of water daily and avoiding caffeine and alcohol (they cause dehydration) and adding a multivitamin/multimineral supplement daily. Regular stretching or yoga can also help.
