Sort of like a twitching Paul? How long does this last?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ya like that,doesn't last long,maybe 5-6 seconds when it does,very infrequent intervals

OK We can continue after this if you'd like Paul. The eyelid twitching on its own wouldn't be very concerning since it usually doesn't indicate anything serious and clears up in time. But if we combine that with what's going on with your thigh then we may be talking about something called myoclonus or fasciculations and that needs investigation. The possible causes would be an electrolyte imbalance in your potassium or sodium or a calcium or magnesium problem or a kidney or liver problem. That said, this could indicate something like multiple sclerosis and although I think that's unlikely, I have to mention it. You need to see a doctor for an exam, blood work, and an MRI of the brain to start
