How can blood calcium cause muscle stiffness

In response.

The Merck Manual of Medical Information lists tetanus (lockjaw) caused by the toxin of the bacteria clostridia tetani (Page 965), polymyalgia rheumatica (Page 262) of unknown cause, and osteoarthritis (Page 244) that will cause muscle stiffness.

The only one that is known to involve blood calcium is osteoarthritis characterized by overgrowth of bone at arthritic joints. The blood calcium would provide the calcium needed for the extra abnormal overgrowth of bone at the arthritic joints.
