What is a spasm?

A mus­cle cramp (mus­cle spasm) is an invol­un­tary con­trac­tion of a mus­cle that is accom­pa­nied by severe pain. The mus­cle becomes firm, dense, its shape changes. After a severe cramp, pain may per­sist for sev­er­al days.
Most often, cramps occur in the calf mus­cle, mus­cles of the back and front of the thigh. A lit­tle less reduces the mus­cles of the foot, arms, abdomen.

Why does a seizure occur

Dehy­dra­tion, stren­u­ous exer­cise, thy­roid prob­lems, low sodi­um or potas­si­um lev­els — these and oth­er rea­sons can cause seizures. How­ev­er, most often mus­cle spasms occur against the back­ground of mag­ne­sium defi­cien­cy, an extreme­ly impor­tant trace ele­ment for health.

The fact is that mag­ne­sium is involved in the trans­mis­sion of nerve impuls­es to mus­cle cells and helps to relax the mus­cles. With a mag­ne­sium defi­cien­cy, the mus­cle fibers are con­stant­ly in a tense state, and the mus­cles over­loaded with stress begin to con­tract invol­un­tar­i­ly over time, which caus­es con­vul­sions, which often make you want to cry.
