Cramps: I see you list excessive sweating as a problem. If you sweat alot and are active you can lose salts. The most common two to cause cramps are potassium and magnesium. Drink fluids and try to increase both. If these cramps continue to be excessive and ongoing get checked by your doctor. ...Read more

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 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 more

Nerve impingement is more probable and can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging disc or encroached upon by bony overgrowth. Rec.: see an interventional pain management specialist for further investigation. Someone who is using fluoroscope. ...Read more

What would make my arms so weak that I can't hold my cell phone with one hand. And getting a cramp in the upper part of my left arm?
Feel shaky lately. Hands are shaky and have muscle twitches. Small and almost feel like vibration in arms. Vit D is 20. Could that be a cause?
While your vitamin D level is low, it is not a likely cause of your symptoms. It is not feasible to provide a more meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. You may take vitamin D3 supplement, available over the counter.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
