In brief: Muscle/nerve effects

Calcium is an important component of normal cell motion.
Low levels tend to have the most clinial effect on nerves and muscles causing tingling, numbness and muscle twitching respectively. Since the heart is also a muscle, low calcium levels can lead to heart rhythm abnormalities resulting in heart palpitations.
