I have told my dr about this and she is not concerned, as I have had it off and on some times months between and never last more than a day or two? I first started having it in my 20s and I am now 70. guess it's not serious, just would like to know what it could be Thank you but you didn't help me get an idea as to what it could be.

Brief Answer: It may be due to muscular spasm. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query Yes, it is not serious at all. But you are 70 years old and you definitely need these investigations because your age is prone to several diseases and it needs periodic screening. From history,it seems that it is related to muscular spasm resulting from unaccustomed position. Final conclusion can only be derived from examination and investigation reports. You should continue taking antihypertensives and medicines for hypothyroidism. Get well soon Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
