See your PCP.: I am not sure if you are asking if weight loss or anxiety is causing muscle twitchings. Anxiety can certainly cause muscle twitches and also weight loss because the tension may make it difficult to eat. On the other hand, anxiety can also cause "anxious eating" or smoking or drinking alcohol . Your doctor could also rule out Hyperthyroidism which causes anxiety and weight loss.
