Probably benign: Twitching in a young person such as yourself is usually benign triggered by stress/anxiety. The anus and toe are not unusual. Make sure you are getting enough calcium and potassium (yogurt, bananas:). The only concerning thing is it lasting and being "constant." If it continues, you should see your doctor, maybe a neurologist, to test for rare neurological problems. Good wishes:)
