Muscle spasms in hands, rectal pain. History of scoliosis since childhood. Symptoms due to scoliosis?

I ve been having rare, but strange involuntary muscle spams in my right hand and trouble using some fingers. I also have rare, but extraordinary pain very low down prior to a bowel movement . I have 20 degree scoliosis which was discovered when was about ten years old and had pinched nerve pain when sitting. I was wondering, could these other symptoms be caused by my scoliosis?

Hi Dear
the history so far u given may be because of scoliosis.
spasms are due to :
Over-extending the muscles during physical activity
Improper lifting of heavy items
Soft-tissue injury
Low Potassium levels
Low Magnesium levels
Electrolyte imbalance

Do check ur calcium level , low calcium can cause muscle spasm,

You should have ur xray spine and might required ct/mri scan to diagnose the rt hand muscle \ spasm.
Suggested to visit neurospecialist after having ur calcium level report.
