Brief Answer:
hi and welcome

Detailed Answer:
Sometimes it can be seen in healthy people and real cause cant be found. in this case it wont progress and wont cause any bad consequances. Sometimes it can be sign of electrolyte imbalance,such as magnesium,potassium or calcium so you should check these levels in your blood. Magnesium or calcium supplements usually help. More serious neurologic disorders are last thing to think of but if this persist tou should do EMG and visit neurologist. Wish you good health.regards
