Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
There can be muscle twitching.
Twitching can occur from a few possibilities.
It is often benign in nature.
It can occur from anxiety, stress.
Overwork, fatigue can be factors.
You need to take rest, avoid anxiety, stress.
Dehydration, or electrolyte changes can be factors.
Gentle massage, application of warm or cold can help.
It can be associated with vitamin deficiency, caffeine intake etc
Occasionally it can be due to irritation of nerve, neurological disorders peripheral neuropathy.
I would suggest to take an examination by your doctor.
A few tests like metabolic panel, NCV, EMG, imaging can be taken depending on clinical finding.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your good health.
