Different causes: Your twitching could be benign fasciculations and these many times happen from being overworked or too stressed out. If other symptoms are present such as weakness or increased tone of extremities then more serious conditions should be entertained such as ALS, polio, or other anterior horn cell disease process. Hope this answers your question.
