What could cause muscle spasm?

I am an 18 year old male. For the past 5-6 months I have noticed a dramatic decrease in my muscle mass and the amount of sleep I am able to get. Even with my normal eating and excersise habits, I keep losing weight. About 2 weeks ago, my left tonsil swelled quite alot and still has not returned to normal. This swelling was accompanied by muscle spasms in my hands, fingers, biceps and calfs. I have also been experiencing morning sickness and moderate to extreme periods of anxiety and nervousness.

I have studied your case.

There is possibility of infection leading to wt loss
And also check your vit B12 and vit D3 level.
HLA B 27 blood test with RA test may rule out inflammatory disease..
Routine blood test like CBC ,esr,HIV,hbsag, rbs will also help in diagnoses.

You may consult physiotherapist for guidance. He may start TENS, or ultrasound which is helpful in your case.
