Twitching happens: Most of the time, twitching (an involuntary muscle movement, usually very small), is harmless and resolves quickly without treatment. High stress, dehydration, low blood sugar, certain medications, electrolyte imbalances and many other things can cause twitching that lasts a long time. If your twitching does not resolve quickly, then it is time to see y our family doctor!
