A crisis of spasmophilia can manifest in several forms more or less associated. Either it is a typical crisis of spasmophilia dominated by muscular symptoms: spasms, contractures and tetany (that is to say a contracture of several muscle groups). Either the crisis is dominated by neurovegetative symptoms with the feeling of a racing heart (palpitations), sweating, the feeling of suffocating, a feeling of discomfort, etc.
Typically, the crisis of spasmophilia is in the form of muscle contractures painful extremities of the limbs, hands and / or feet or face, likely to generalize. The crisis of spasmophilia occurs most often in stressful situations or generating tensions.
The person can feel the crisis happen, with precursory symptoms: tingling in the face, lips, under the nose, in the hands and feet. She feels the crisis coming, starts breathing quickly, panting. She panics, shakes, her heart beats fast, can have a lump in her throat that suffocates her. One or both hands can contract strongly and take the form of the "midwife's hand" with the fingers tightened, a little bent, thumb in. The mouth, if it is affected by the contracture takes the form of a "snout".
