Many possible causes: The twitching may be related to any number of reasons including stress, stimulant overuse (for example, caffeine), overexercise, or nutritional deficiencies. See your physician if you are concerned. In the meantime, you could try stretching, using a heating pad, etc. Here is some more information: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003296.htm
