Have you been checked for restless leg syndrome??  That can be as you described to much more painful.  Malic Acid and Magnesium help me with mine, but make sure you check any meds you are taking for interactions

Just a thought

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The most probable cause for the twitching could be neuropathy, a disorder of the nerves. Most common cause for neuropathy is diabetes.  It can also be due to metabolic disorders, vitamin deficiencies, infections and traumatic injuries. Other causes could be due to scabies, eczema, tineapedis (fungal infection) and psoriasis. Scabies infection is caused by a mite Sarcoptesscabiei, it burrows in the skin folds of hands and feet and causes intense itching mostly at night. You may need to consult your primary care physician to detect the cause.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
