This is Dr. David
are the involuntary arm spasms small twitches of muscles under the skin like benign fasiculations?
TENs units can cause involuntary muscle spasms as well.
are these movements close to your TENs unit?
low potassium and low magnesium levels can cause cramps and muscle spasms as well.
