Thanks for posting your query.

Considering your age and other risk factors, the following possibilities may be the reason:
-Hypocalcemia or hypomagnesemia causing spasms
-Transient ischemic attack
-Cramping or twitching due to fatigue.

I hope you are better now. Resolution of symptoms is a positive sign. You can consider investigation with your doctor, if you are concerned or if symptoms recur again.

Hope this solves your query. You can write back to me for more queries if any.
