Have You Experienced Tetany aka Hand Cramps During a Trip? Don’t Freak Out - You’re Not Alone

Addressing Tetany aka Hand Cramps During a Psychedelic Experience: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment

In the event you begin experiencing signs of tetany during a trip and a simple bottle of water isn't sufficient to reduce symptoms, you should consider:eplenishing your electrolytes right away: The easiest, although not the healthiest solution, will be a bottle or two of Gatorade. However, in the event you have forgotten to bring your electrolytes, you can opt for adding ¼ tbsp salt and 1-2 tbsp of honey in a cup of water, coconut water and lemon juice.  Staying calm: Anxiety will only worsen the symptoms. Consider breathing exercises and changing your setting. Massaging and stretching your extremities: This will help with blood circulation. Asking your trip sitter to check your heart rate: Most psychedelic retreats have an ENT on stand-by who can diagnose the need for medical assistance. Oftentimes, it is not necessary if you’re able to replenish your electrolyte levels.
