It sounds a bit odd but let us wait and watch as I expect it will go away. Are you under some kind of stress at home or at your job? I would advise you to take a walk for 15-20 minutes once or twice daily. Right now it is nothing serious to worry about. Try to ignore it, relax and take some deep breaths when you have this feeling. it will help you to relax.

If you're experiencing muscle twitching frequently in scattered areas of the body, I recommend that you be checked for deficiencies in calcium,magnesium and for electrolyte imbalance. I don't think your veins are necessarily abnormal. If unexplained continued muscle irritability occurs, consult a neurologist for evaluation.
