Muscle twitching is caused by minor muscle contractions in the area, or the uncontrollable twitching of a muscle group that is served by a single motor nerve fiber or filament. Muscle twitches may be common and not caused by any particular disease or disorder. Others are signs of a nervous system disorder. The most common causes of muscle twitching are- Diet deficiency, Drug overdose (caffeine), Drug side effect (such as from diuretics, corticosteroids, or estrogens), Exercise, stress or anxiety , Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Damage to the nerves, Muscular dystrophy, Spinal muscular atrophy or Weak muscles (myopathy). Please consult a neurologist for examination, diagnosis and management of the symptoms. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
