Does having twitching muscles in my back and elbow mean they are injured?

In brief: No

Muscle twitching is very common.
It has to do with nerve irritation and doesn't mean the muscles are damaged. Usually, twitching is temporary and resolves on its own.

In brief: Twitching muscles

Could represent fatigue or nerve irritation.
Would get this checked out by primary dovtor.
