I have been having constant muscle twitches every single day since last year. Some days I can’t take it, most days it manageable but it still effects my daily life. I have been told by my doctor that I have a vitamin d deficiency. As a result, i have been prescribed vitamin D. Of course I took it & I have been taking it. But it just seems very unusual that I get them so often and every single day. Is it possible that my kidneys are not processing the vitamin d properly? Or is another underlying condition possible? I do not have any diseases, viruses, and no other health issues. It’s gotten to the point where I have to take sleep medication because the spasms are so bad.
Hello dear sorry about your health condition. Possible causes for muscle twitch or spasm is 1. Anxiety 2.Muscle fatigue. 3.Exercising in heated temperatures. 4.Dehydration. 5.Electrolyte imbalances in potassium, magnesium and calcium. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Drink plenty of liquids and water, Avoid alcohol consumption and smoking. Get it done serum electrolytes and electromyography. Use muscle relaxants like chlorzoxazone or baclofen after food for five days. If symptoms not improved please review with reports or consult with your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly. Take care.
