Usually benign.: I infer from what you write that you saw a neurologist for EMG/NCS and other necessary tests. Since the tests have ruled out any significant disease, you most likely have benign fasciculations. You can confirm this with the doctor who ordered the tests. Take care, and keep healthy.
