In brief: Usually normal

Spontaneous twitching of muscles is common in normal individuals.
The twitching can involve the eyelids, facial muscles, chet wall or muscles of the limbs. There are some neurological conditions that can also present as twitching muscles. However in that case there are other symptoms too. So if your symptoms are significant then you should see a physician, preferably a neurologist.
