Spasms And Cramping In The Hands Or Feet
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 experience painful blood vessels in hands feet,legs and arms,burst veins, cramp, painful spasms in neck, tinitus and tingling in hands and mouth?
Sounds like: some of your symptoms may be related to your fibromyalgia. It does not look like you are taking any medication for this. If you are having swelling/edema in your extremities that can also be a cause for the "burst veins". Varicose veins can also become inflamed, causing your symptoms. I would recommend you see your doctor to have these addressed. There ARE treatments for fibromyalgia! ...Read more

You : You do need to be seen and be evaluated for this. Even though you are taking vitamins or minerals, you could still have a deficiency such as low potassium or low sodium. There are other neurological possibilities as well. Please be seen by your doctor for a complete evaluation.

What is the grade level of my sprain? I recently had my feet slip out from underneath me going down some wet steps and sprained my wrist/hand pretty good. Its been a week and it still a bother. I would bend it and it would feel like a cramp, my range of m
The : The wrist is a complex structure involving 15 bones coming together. There are, therefore, multiple joints between these bones and a large number of ligaments holding them all together. We still have only a very basic understanding of the mechanics of the wrist. A good hand surgeon will try to evaluate all of these structures with a careful examination and x-rays. Sometimes getting what are called "stress views" will show injuries that typical x-rays will not. Mri can be helpful, but usually with stronger magnets at 3 tesla. However, they can still miss injuries or report injuries that are not really there. They are only meaningful if they clarify the symptoms and exam findings. Thankfully, most injuries resolve with rest, but there are 2 injuries that can be missed and have significant consequences: scaphoid fractures and scapholunate ligament injuries. With any wrist injury, a re-evaluation in 10-14 days can be helpful to show injuries that were not apparent when the injury happened. I would make sure you have a follow-up appointment with your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
