Post Involuntary muscle spasms in hand?

Ok. Picture your left hand and the area between your thumb and "pointer". This area on my hand is constantly trembling/shaking/vibrating/spasming involuntarily. When it does this, it literally "pulls" the pointer finger to the right and when it stops, it goes back into the correct alignment. I don't recall damaging the nerves in my hand. Does a lack of potassium have anything to do with this?

What's crazy is that these same type of muscle/nerve spasms were happening in my anus about 2 months ago. Also, a lot of the times ANY muscle in my body will go through this. What's going on?

It could be a vitamin B deficiency...B complex feeds the nerves...most of us are deficient in B vitamins.
We get them from carob, brewer's yeast, raw whole grains...so you see why we can be deficient?

I suggest that you get a B 100 complex vitamin and take it every day. It is water soluable and is not toxic, as what you don't use will wash out of the body.
Drink lots of water, too.

The B adds a dark yellow color to the urine. it is harmless.
