Are you still there?

This is benign fasciculation or Benign twitches- usually affects eye, thigh,calf and thumb- triggered by stress or anxiety,potassium or magnesium deficiency,electrolyte imbalance.

They will resolve with rest, vitamins and hydration with Gatorade.
Stress reduction is really important too
But if they get worse, more broad or associated with weakness or numbness, you need to see your physician.

How do we know it's not a blood clot. He works out regularly and watches his diet.

As long as there is no tenderness,redness,bluish discoloration,swelling,severe pain and area warm to touch then chances of blood clot formation are very slim.

So you needn't to worry at all about it.
