Yes: Acutely compressed nerves can result in muscle twitching, muscle spasm and typical painful radiation patterns. This is due to the abnormal signal the nerves are now sending to the muscles which are reacting to its signal. Sometimes this is an involuntary action in which the nerve is reacting like a reflex arc that is on replay. This cycle of nerve signaling needs to be broken to improve this. ...Read more
Can be many things: First thing to do is hydrate well and see if that makes a difference.

It could be GERD: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd) is a chronic digestive disease that occurs when stomach acid or, occasionally, bile flows back (refluxes) into your food pipe (esophagus).

Muscle twitch, aches: Painless twitching can be worrisome but if associated with aches, it suggests an actual problem with muscles or nerves.

I have what feels like a muscle twitching/tingly sensation on the base of my skull (left side) for 2 days now. What could be causing this?
Skin tingling: Have a doctor look at the skin on your scalp. I always think of shingles when I hear this kind of story. Often the tingling feeling starts a couple days before the rash appears. This is the time to see a doctor, because the earlier you get started on the medication for shingles, the more it will help. After 48 hrs of the rash, the medicine doesn't make much of a difference. ...Read more

Usually benign.: I infer from what you write that you saw a neurologist for EMG/NCS and other necessary tests. Since the tests have ruled out any significant disease, you most likely have benign fasciculations. You can confirm this with the doctor who ordered the tests. Take care, and keep healthy. ...Read more
Muscle twitch: Muscle twitching is caused by minor muscle contractions in the area, or uncontrollable twitching of a muscle group that is served by a single motor nerve fiber. Muscle twitches are minor and often go unnoticed. Some are common and normal. Others are signs of a nervous system disorder. ...Read more
Rather unlikely: Muscle twitching isn't usually associated with multiple sclerosis, and more likely would represent a problem with your thyroid, or a medication reaction, or even issues with metabolic imbalance.

On the other hand, a drug reaction (bronchodilator for asthma), too much caffeine, or a neurologic disorder may cause twitching as well. ...Read more
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
