In brief: Many things
You should see your doctor. Potential causes include focal motor seizures (especially if just one limb, or arm & legion same side), dystonia, or simple cramps from things like calcium deficiency.
Only a medical evaluation can give you the answer.

In brief: Systemic? Localized?
A pinched nerve can cause similar. Lack of certain nutrients , like potassium or calcium can cause similar. Do you have numbness or weakness? Would consider seeing a specialist, like a neurologist.
