My husband has been having a problem with s fingers and side

Customer Question

My husband has been having a problem with his fingers and side of her hand cramping up. This is happening more often and with more intensity. Can you give us any idea what might be causing this. He appears to be in good health otherwise.

Hi there,

I am online and will be happy to answer your questions.

i am sorry to hear about your problem.

the way you are telling it seems like hypocalcemic tetanic spasm of hand . which is commonly seen in low calcium levels.

if you can send me a pic or video , i would be better able to comment.

however, i recommend at this time to get tested for calcium and vitamin D levels.

thanks.

please let me know if i can provide further clarifications.

A picture would only show a normal appearing hand although the area does cramp downward when it is happening. He will have his DR check those levels next visit which is next week. Thank you.
