Twitching toes: There is no definitive explanation for your symptoms but it could be a variant of restless leg syndrome. Other causes include electrolyte imbalances or endocrine abnormalities, drug withdrawal, muscle fatigue, denervation injuries, etc. You should be examined by your primary care physician for a history, physical and appropriate laboratory evaluation and referred to specialists if necessary.
