Hand Or Feet Jerky Spasms
What do I do for estreme leg, feet and hand muscle cramps? Kept me up all night--still spasaming. Tried diazapam that I have for occasional cramping and drank some tonic water for the quinine and drank gator ade for the electrolights.
I : I agree with dr. Jaffery. Another consideration would be spinal cord irritation and a neurologic exam would be able to uncover that problem. Before you visit the neurologist make sure to differentiate between "spasms", cramps, and restless legs. Spasms respresent a painful and involuntary muscle contraction. It can not be released voluntarily. A muscle cramp is a sudden intermittent pain of a muscle that may involve involuntary contractions and can be associated with spasms. Restless legs refers to an uneasiness and restlessness in the legs when at rest. This most commonly occurs after going to bed but can be seen earlier in the evening (anticipation). Cramps can also be associated with arthritic conditions and cold exposure. I hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I haven't slept all night. When I'm fixing to fall asleep, my hands and feet spasm. How do I stop it? What's wrong?

I get muscle spasms and charley horses often in my feet, hands, and sometimes neck almost every time i exercise. What do you think this is due to?
Dehydration: Try hydrating with electrolytes (like sports drinks, not just water) to see if that helps. Dehydration can cause spasms in multiple areas. That being said, if it does not help, then see your physician to see if you have any other issues, including anemia (common in your age group), electrolyte issues or metabolic issues. Make sure to stretch after working out as well. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Spasms: While there may be degenerative arthritis in your back at several levels, symptoms with coughing suggests that there might be more to this, including lung disease. Then, symptoms involving both the arms and hands are from a nerve distribution that might be quite central and in the spinal cord but may be associated with diabetes. Finally, ms is the great imitator and MRI would possibly show signs. ...Read more
What could cause muscle spasms in hands and feet due due problems with cervical spine disks c6-c7?
Spinal cord compress: To have symptoms in both the arms and the legs, this is more than just a pinched or compressed nerve root. It is a compression across the spinal cord at the c6-7 level termed a cervical myleopathy. This is either a large disc herniation or a disc herniation in the presence of spinal stenosis. You need to see a spine specialist for an urgent evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
