Sue, it might be due to an electrolyte disturbance (sodium, potassium, magnesium, etc.), a problem with the blood flow or even a problem with the nerves supplying those areas. You can try taking something like Slow K® and/or Slow Mag® and some table salt every day for a week or so, but if it doesn’t clear up the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
