Lately my left hand has been doing something weird, my left hand is my dominant hand and, well… it’s cramping up..like locking up in a cramp where I can’t unclench my hand…and it fucking hurts. (I mention this because it just fucking happened again!) It also scares the shit out of me. I was really worried it was a sign of some future arthritis issues..but, no .. apparently it’s this:
The most common sources of spasms include overused muscles and dehydration. Prolonged writing or typing can lead to hand cramping from overuse of the muscles. Other reasons for cramping are low levels of calcium and magnesium. Numerous things can affect your calcium level, but the usual culprit is vitamin D deficiency.
Pretty sure the many hours I spend in the sun maneuvering carts might have a wee bit to do with it. Sigh** And yes, I’ll drink extra calcium just in case. I’ll add it to the list…( Hypoglycemia= Oranges, Potassium deficiency= Potatoes and Bananas and now! I’ll add Milk and Cheese to the pile.) Double sigh**
