My Left Calf Often Twitches?
My calves to my thighs often twitch, then when my legs are folded for a while they are tingling, I used to be diligent in exercising now it’s rare, I am 171 and weigh 66 kg, is it because I am heavy or do I have other illnesses?
Hi Muhammad Atthoriq,
Twitching in the muscles can be caused by the following:
Hypocalcemia, hypercalcemia. Excess or lack of calcium in the body
Caffeine overdose, above 400mg / day
Peripheral nerve disorders or damage
Kidney disorders, and others.
Symptoms of tingling after folding the legs are a normal thing to happen, due to reduced blood supply to the nerve area. This tingling is usually temporary and harmless.
With a height of 171 cm and a weight of 66 kg, your body mass index is still in the normal category, which is 22.5. Therefore, your weight does not affect the complaints mentioned above.
Control to the doctor if the complaint persists
Avoid using excessive caffeine
Make sure you drink enough water, especially when doing strenuous activities, exercising or in a hot atmosphere.
Eat well-nourished foods
Get enough rest
Be careful with the use of drugs outside the doctor's recommendations and prescriptions
Thus, hope it can help you
