anything: Sorry your question is too general, the possibilities for the symptoms you are describing actually fill over a thousand medical textbooks. Again a great start is a good complete physical exam by a licensed general practitioning physician.

No: While it can cause very mild paresthesias, muscle twitching is not a common side effect. That being said, it is not well studied for specific side effect profiles and cannot account for adulterants.

I've been having muscle spasms and twitching in different spots all over my body and they r painless what could cause this?

Please see below: If they are painless, may be normal. But, spasms are usually painful. If you have these symptoms for long time then you want to see a neurologist to make sure there is nothing serious going on.
