Is twitching toe a symptom of vitamin deficiency ?

I am 16 I m about 5 5 and I weigh around 150. My big toe on my left foot has been twitching nonstop for the past couple weeks, it does not hurt but it has been bugging me. I was thinking it might be a vitamin deficiency but I take a daily vitamin. I am also a vegetarian if that makes a difference. Any thoughts?

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Twitching is nothing but the fine movements of a small area of muscle. This could happen anywhere on your body. They are Normal and quite common, often triggered by stress or anxiety. They could also be related to Malnutrition, Caffeine Intake, Drug Side effects or Exercise. If you wear shoe continuously through out the day, limit wearing them. Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet like fresh fruits and green leafy veggies. Avoid stress.
If you happen to expereince any kind of weakness, Muscle wasting or abnormal sensations or absence of sensations, you should be seeing a Neurologist immediately, so that he can examine you and rule out the exact cause.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
