Thanks for using HealthcareMagic forum.

Muscle twitching is a benign, harmless condition. The cause is usually unknown. Sometimes it may be related to metabolic and electrolyte disturbances and rarely to a neurological pathology.

Do not worry. It should improve with proper hydration and destressing measures. Severe cases need a detailed neurological examination.

Hope this is helpful.

Wish you good luck.

Best Regards
