Complete Body Spasms
I'm just a little concerned about my mother, the other day her whole body went into cramp and spasms, she couldn't move at all. When we ask her what is wrong with her, she keeps saying nothing. But after what happened the other day we are extremely worried, can someone tell me what could cause a persons whole body to go into cramp??

Worried, it might be due to an electrolyte disturbance, but it might also be due to a form of epilepsy or stroke. The best would be to have her checked by her doctor. Good luck.
