How To Stop Muscle Spasms

Do any of you have had small muscle spasms befoe?

What’d be the cause? Fatigue? Lack of a certain mineral? I can’t figure it out. It’s so random and infrequent.

But now a small muscle close to my rear dealt has squirmed and twitched for more than 30 hours! It does hurt but it’s annoying as hell!

Any one knows on to stop it?

Try supplementing with magnesium, insufficient intake can cause muscle spasms.

OK Thanx

It stopped when I “foamrolled” it to oblivion.

I usually get them in my hamstrings. I’ve always thought it was dehydration when I got spasms, but I’m def gonna look into foam rolling and magnesium.
