Neurologist: I suggest you seek an evaluation by a neurologist. You may need nerve conduction studies or other evaluation methods to help determine if these twitches are a sign of something more involved, or just a physiologic quirk. Good luck.

Lack of certain dietary minerals may also contribute. You may want to consider getting specific testing by a physician trained in functional medicine. Find one at http://www.functionalmedicine.org/practitioner_search.aspx?id=117
