hi and welcome
you could get a serum magnesium test to rule out athletic nutrient depletion as a source of your spasms. it's a major blind spot in conventional health care. your serum levels need to be high high normal to avoid deficiency. research has established that deficiency occurs inside the normal range... undiagnosed-f54/topic22740.html#p213263

I have helped others deal with athletic nutrient depletion... the docs aren't trained to see the electrolyte problems associated with athletic nutrient depletion.
I used to have SERIOUS cognitive deficits and muscular issues as well. once I started looking into it, I had multiple nutrient depletion issues. i fixed them and got better. ... undiagnosed-f54/topic22679.html#p212824

i have often passed on research to members here regarding athlete nutrient depletion. a while back i gave the same info to a thin active person with amenohrrea, then counselled her through getting all the related bloodwork done, and starting a corrective nutrient-dense diet plus therapeutic supplement regimen. her nutrient levels got higher, and she got better... introductions-f20/topic21854.html#p206052
I can help advise on tests and how to evaluate results if you're interested in leaning about and/or pursuing a nutrition science approach. worst case scenario, you rule out depletion as a factor. but at a minimum I would think you should be able to expect some gains from addressing any suboptimal nutrient levels.
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
