These twitches possibly are short muscle spasm. May happen due to abnormal Ca metabolism. The first of all check your diet for milk, cheese, and use Fish oil 1200 Daily for 1-2 month. And tonic water. You having these for ~ 2 years, that's why you can try it for 2 months. Then go to a doctor.

Given no other symptoms and no worsening over 2 years makes it likely to be simply normal muscle twitch that is rather common.
