Thanks for writing to us.
The random numbness and the twitches that you are having are likely to be due to benign causes like vitamin B 12 deficiency or an electrolyte imbalance. You can start taking the supplements and see if there is any improvement till you see your physician.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
