Neurologist Yuri Andrusov on Sunday, March 21, in an interview with reporters, named dangerous diseases associated with spasms.
The specialist emphasized that spasms emanating from the muscles of the head, face, neck and arms may indicate dangerous pathological conditions of the body.
In particular, such symptoms can be manifestations of dystonic syndromes associated with stable reflex motor contractions of certain muscle groups. In addition, such spasms can be a sign of myoclonus, characterized by involuntary short-term muscle contractions.
The doctor also talked about what such a common symptom as leg muscle spasms can talk about. Muscle fatigue or orthopedic problems can be the cause, he said. At the same time, a violation of the electrolyte balance in the body can manifest itself, such as a lack of potassium or magnesium, the specialist noted in an interview with the “360” TV channel.
Earlier on the same day, a neurologist Yevgeny Sokov told how it is most physiological to sleep, and listed the positions that are unfavorable for sleep.
In addition, on March 21, neurologist-somnologist Elena Tsareva announced how to maintain a sleep schedule using a smartphone.
