I had the same problem and the doc diagnosed it as too much caffeine so I cut waaaaaaaaaaaay back on caffeine intake and it went away. He explained it and it made sense but I can't really remember the particulars. He said not to worry much. I'd still go get it checked out were I you. Go to your doctor!!
