Since their spasms affecting multiple muscle groups and have been going on for weeks, you should see your doctor . The fact that you are tired all the time is also somewhat troubling.

Depend on your medical history and whether a detailed, to hopefully find out the cause of your problems and initiate appropriate treatment plan physical examination is performed . Good Luck!
