    Muscle fasciculation; Fasciculations of muscle
    Definition Return to top

    Muscle twitches are fine movements of a small area of muscle.

    Considerations Return to top

    Muscle twitching is the result of minor local muscle contractions or the uncontrollable twitching of a single muscle group served by a single motor nerve fiber or filament.

    Muscle twitches are minor and often go unnoticed. Some are common and normal, while others indicate a neurologic disorder.

    Common Causes Return to top

    Benign twitches (not caused by disease or disorders)
    Often affecting the eyelids, calf, or thumb
    Normal and quite common, often triggered by stress or anxiety
    A diet deficiency
    Drug overdose (caffeine)
    Drug side effect (such as diuretics, corticosteroids and estrogens)
    Exercise
    Symptoms suggestive of a neurological cause of fasciculations include:

    Wasting of muscle
    Weakness
    Other findings of nerve dysfunction
    Neurological illnesses where fasciculations are seen include:

    Chronic denervation of muscle due to disk compression of nerve exiting the spinal cord
    ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease)
    Spinal muscular atrophy
    Muscular dystrophy
    Myopathy
