Could be Tetany

Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
I have read the brief details as you have written.
This kind of problem , in my opinion Could be due to deficiency of vitamin D and Calcium,,, magnesium or potassium. This condition is called Tetany , if my diagnosis is right.
I suggest you get tests for Blood levels of Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium and Vitamin D3.
In the meantime start calcium preparations. If all reports are normal then neurologist opinion is required.
