Spasmofilia could beginning from muscle cramps. Muscle cramps can happen to anyone, and cause discomfort because the person can not move for several moments. Spasmofilia is a disorder characterized by muscle twitching, cramps and spasms carpopedal. If the condition is severe can cause seizures.
This condition occurs due to imbalance of electrolytes in the blood that could be due to calcium deficiency (hypocalcemia) or serum magnesium deficiency that may be associated with hyperventilation, hipoparatiroidism, rickets, uremia and other conditions. In the case of spasmofilia, muscle cramps happen due to lack of calcium electrolytes in the muscle. This condition can occur in certain regions (local) instance in the hands or stomach, but it can also in some places.
Other symptoms that appear to someone who has spasmofilia is experiencing convulsions, but not because of epilepsy. In addition to muscle cramps which a primary symptom, other symptoms are lethargy, weakness and tingling easy. Spasmofilia also can connect with people who are often anxious or experiencing excessive anxiety. Sometimes these people are showing positive results on tests spasmofilia.
Lack of calcium ions in muscle that occur in patients spasmofilia likely due to abnormalities in the metabolism of the person’s body. This makes the body unable to properly absorb calcium ions. To diagnose spasmofilia is usually done by using electromyography (EMG). In this test will see a wave of muscle cells that normally experience cramps or spasms.
To distinguish between spasmofilia and epilepsy should be checking Electroencephalography (EEG). On EEG examination will be recorded electric waves in the brain during seizures, so that the cables attached to the examination in chief. It will be seen whether there is disruption of electrical waves in the brain or not. Spasmoflia will be cured, usually the patient will be given capsules or tablets that contain calcium. In addition, calcium intake from food can also help, because the organic calcium derived from plants (algae or vegetables) or animals (animal cartilage) is better than inorganic calcium (from drugs).
