What Causes Muscle Cramps In Hands
Keep getting muscle cramps on my foot when I drive (step on accelerator) n on my hand for the past 2 weeks. What's wrong?
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length.

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.

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 more

Multifactorial: Assuming you are talking about activity related cramps, i would say that the two most likely causes are electrolyte(salts) imbalance and poor hydration. Gatorade has an excellent site for fluid replacement in relation to excercise. In general you should be drinking 64 oz of fluid per day plus 12 oz for each hour of intense exercise. Avoid sodas and sugary drinks. Finally, ca+ and magnisium sup. ...Read more
