Your symptoms are suggestive of fasciculation of the muscles.

Muscle fasciculation or muscle twitching is caused by minor muscle contractions in one particular area or the persistent and uncontrolled twitching of a muscle group in the distribution of a single nerve fiber or filament. Usually, they are benign and resolve on their own.

The common causes can be;

1) Idiopathic; no cause is ascertained and the majority falls in this group.

2) Increased caffeine intake

3) Increased alcohol intake

4) Medications

5) Deficiency in diet and nutrients / minerals

Please feel free for your follow-up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
