Thank you for your question. This muscle twitching is also called as muscle fasciculation & appears when the muscle contracts on its own (without nerve stimulation). Most of the times muscle twitching occurs without any underlying disorder & they are not harmful or may appear after viral illness ,vitamin/nutritional deficiency, hormonal disorder esp. thyroid and anxiety. However, sometimes this muscle twitching appears as atrophy and weakness of muscle as well and might be associated with any neurological disorder. Most likely cause of this twitching with pain of muscles can be when the nerve supplying to arm muscles is not functioning properly due to any vitamin/nutritional deficiency. If you suffer continuous weakness and notice reduced strength of muscle, please arrange an appointment with a neurologist right away who will evaluate the possibilities here. Hope this information proves helpful to you.
