Toes/ finger twictch: Needs to check ionized calcium as it may symptoms of hypocalcemia, or may be part of involuntary movements disorders, needs work up and watch if you have twitices of lips, or eye lid.

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.
