Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

In my opinion these twitching's are due to abnormal nerve endings stimulation . This could be due to deficiency of Vitamin B12, Vit D3, or electrolyte imbalance. I recommend blood tests for vitamin B12, D3 and serum electrolytes.
In the meantime take plenty of water , and start a combination of pregabalin and methycobalamine.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
