Does IgA Nephropathy or Steroid Cause Spasm

Question: I experience palm spasm (twitching) or leg/arms spasm while taking steroids. Is it because of the IgA Nephropathy or the steroids?

IgA Nephropathy can cause spasm.

With IgA Nephropathy, waste products build up in the blood gradually. When toxin concentration is high in the blood, it will affect all systems of your body so as to lead to spasm. Besides, your damaged kidneys can not regulate electrolytes in the blood. Calcium and magnesium deficiency can also cause spasm.

Spasm can also be caused by steroids.

In order to stabilize IgA Nephropathy, steroids are often used to block kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage. Long-term use of steroids can cause many side effects including body cramps. This is fact that steroids can affect many systems of our body.
