My friend went to a doctor, who said she has + chovstek&trousseau sign. But the doctor could not tell b/c she's not hypocalcemic? What should I do?

In brief: Magnesium, hypervent

Check for los magnesium ( hypomagnasemia).
Many nervous ( neurosis) patients with hyperventilation cause a cramp in the hands and fingers like a trousseau sign. I believe this is probably the most common cause of contractions similar to the sign of trousseau's.
