In brief: Muscle twitching

Painless twitching can be benign, sometimes happens with magnesium deficiency or problems with calcium but there are certain types of twitching that warrant a good neurological exam to sort out.
Many things can be blamed on stress but usually better to look for more worrisome answer before assuming that.
