In brief: <1% chance of ALS.

It is common for people to experience muscle twitching phenomena.
Be healthy, eat right, exercise, & do not worry. In the early stages amyotrophic lateral sclerosis presents with increasing weakness in one limb, usually a hand. Fasciculations (twitching muscle fibers) are usually subtle. Then speech & swallowing difficulties are seen, as is difficulty walking. Still worried? your MD can do a test.
