    Causes

    * Diet deficiency
    * Drug overdose (caffeine)
    * Drug side effect (such as from diuretics, corticosteroids, or estrogens)
    * Exercise
    * Twitches not caused by disease or disorders (benign twitches)
    o Often affecting the eyelids, calf, or thumb
    o Normal and quite common, often triggered by stress or anxiety
    o Come and go, and do not last for more than a few days

    Nervous system conditions that can cause muscle twitching:

    * Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS - Lou Gehrig's disease)
    * Damage to the nerve that leads to a muscle
    * Muscular dystrophy
    * Spinal muscular atrophy
    * Weak muscles (myopathy)

    Symptoms that suggest a nervous system disorder include:

    * Loss of, or change in sensation
    * Loss of muscle size (wasting)
    * Weakness

    For some reasons this happens sometime in my right tricep... I was sitting in class the other day and it happened and I probably looked like a douche because I couldn't stop my tricep from moving.
