Why is my left lower thigh muscle twitching for no reason?

Fasiculation: This is most likely something called a fasiculation. It is an isolated muscle twitch in one area that lasts temporarily. A good example is an eye twitch. If the symptoms continue, worsen, or move to include other muscles you should see your doctor. It could be a sign of an underlying neurologic disorder.
