Hello. First you should have a complete physical exam by your Doctor. A blood test will be required. Could be a vitamin deficiency. More precisely you need to get checked for anemia and also get your B12 vitamin and serum potassium levels checked. A muscle relaxant may also prove to beneficial if situation persists. Regards
