Hi,

Good to hear from you again.

I do not see any reason to worry in your case.It just seems to be some minor aliment.

The commonest possibility is some muscular discomfort or twitching.At times due to unusual stretching or pressure on muscles fibers this can happen.This is non specific, not necessarily happens every time.As in your case ,it goes away very fast.

When ever the muscle is tense,there is pressure on muscle fibers due to some physical exertion this can happen frequently.

You do not require any specific treatment.I would suggest you please visit your physician once and get your blood pressure checked.I am sure things will be normal only, it is better to have a look at it.

As it is not happening very frequently I would suggest you to neglect it,there is nothing to get alarmed.

I hope this answers your query,I will be available for follow up.

Regards
