Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Muscle twitches are fine, uncontrollable movements occuring in a part of muscle.

Though muscle twitches can happen for lots of reasons, in your case they could be PHYSIOLOGICAL resulting due to stress, poor diet, sternuous exercise, muscle fatigue , anxiety etc.

These twitches wane off spontaneously within a few days and are not a matter of concern.

If you continue to have twitches even after a few weeks, then an evaluation is needed to diagnose the underlying cause.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
