I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a video of these leg spasms to to our conversation? You can upload a video to YouTube or a similar app and then give me the link to it. Leg spasms can represent pain, tremors or partial seizures.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Sorry for my late response I was busy with work. I can try and upload a video and I will send the link to you. I also have him some milk and it seemed to help I think a little bit. I will keep watching and be ready and as soon as I get the video as well as uploading it on youtube I will send you the link. Thank you SO MUCH for getting back to me. I SO very much APPRECIATE it.
