  • Hello Brandon, It might be that you are low on calcium, potasium, magnesium, any or all of them. Or maybe a rare syndrome called "Stiff Person Syndrome." Have you told your doctor about your charlie horses in your arms? Checking your electrolytes (cal., potas, mag.) is 1 easy blood test. Try eating more bananas. I wish you the best of luck in trying to get your problem resolved.
