Thank you for the information,

Often muscle twitch can occur spontaneously without any underlying cause.

Dietary deficiency of vitamins and minerals, excess caffeine, anxiety & stress can be a factor.

Diseases like ALS, MS, PD or brain tumor , myopathy can cause it.

Excess exercise can also cause muscles to twitch.

Adequate rest can resolve the issue.

Tell him to take plenty of fresh fruits & vegetables to prevent any vitamin deficiency.

When it has just started, he can watch.

If the symptoms persist, he should consult doctor for evaluation.

However tell him to avoid anxiety & stress which are the commonest causes.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

It's not a twitching. It's a vibration.

I googled it and there seems to be plenty of people with the same symptom.


Any other advice?

When a group of muscles or fascicles are involved, then it can be felt as a vibration.

The irritation can be in the muscle itself or in the nerve.

It can resolve by its own and with some prophylactic measures I have mentioned.

If the symptoms persist, the cause needs to be determined.
