Spasms appear with stress and muscle overload

Spasms appear with stress and muscle overload

Who has never felt a painful muscle contraction of the "potato" of the leg (calf) or those small contractions that occur in the eyelid? These are examples of neurological phenomena that occur at muscle level or its more delicate portions (muscle fibers) and are often triggered by stress.

There are different types of muscle spasms. A more familiar type would be cramp, which is nothing more than a painful muscle contraction. Most people who have cramp show these muscle spasms of benign nature as a reaction of the body to stress. But other more complex causes, such as some neurological diseases and hydroelectrolytic disorders, can be the source of frequent cramps. In such cases, looking for a specialist is crucial.

On the other hand, one type of muscle spasm that does not hurt would be the so-called "eyelid myocytes." Again, they are usually benign and occur, as the name suggests, in one of the eyelids, as if they were small painless contractions in this region. Myocytes are usually not due to any specific situation other than stress, but cases of frequent recurrence, bilateral or associated with other manifestations should be investigated by a neurologist.

In the end, both cramps and facial myoquimia are examples of muscle spasms with features different, but a common point: stress. Therefore, regular physical activity under empowered professional guidance, hydration, balanced nutrition and relaxation techniques can help prevent muscle spasms. Remembering that too much can be bad, like the strenuous practice of physical activity.
