inducible muscle twitching

hi. i hope you could help me out on this one. I 've started experiencing muscle twitching 3 years ago. It used to involve only my right leg  but now it has extended to all limbs, intercostal muscles, neck, face, everywhere. the twitching happens everyday and are more bothersome now than ever. I have also noticed that while the twitching would happen even at rest, i can sort of induced them by stretching or coughing. i fear that the muscle twitching at rest combined with the "twitching" induced by movement means the involvement of both the upper and lower motor neurons, and thus als. I also have jerk like movements w/c would happen when i'm at the " brink of waking up" , although these are not as frequent. my left arm seems to be more easily fatigued than the right although they still appear to be almost of the same girth. i dont have any evident atrophy (i think)  Im a female, 26 y/o . should i be worried?
