u there?
Neurologist: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 months ago

Thank you for the input.
I understand your concern.
Muscle twitch is often benign.
Benign twitch can be due to electrolyte, calcium and vitamin deficiency.
Anxiety, stress, excess caffeine can also cause it.
Muscle fatigue can have a role.
Though neurological disorder can be a cause but it is usually associated with loss of sensation, weakness, wasting etc.
Please take plenty of fresh fruits & vegetables, fluid to correct any deficiency.
If you develop any other symptom, I would advise to get an examination by his doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
