Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your symptoms. I agree with your GP, that your symptoms are not suggestive of something serious and are most likely due to benign fasciculation syndrome
I think you are worried about MND (motor neurone disease), also called as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(ALS), which is unlikely in your case. In ALS, there would be thinning of muscles, as well as weakness of hands & arms.
However, if in doubt, please consult a neurologist
and get electromyography
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
