Twitches and sudden movements in the body can be caused by a number of different things. Muscle twitching is caused by minor muscle contractions in a certain area while uncontrollable twitching of a muscle group is usually caused by a single motor nerve fibre or filament. Usually muscle twitches are minor and can often go unnoticed. While some are common and perfectly normal, others can be a sign of a nervous system disorder. Some of the most common causes of muscle twitching are; diet deficiency, caffeine overdoses, drug side effects (from drugs such as diuretics, corticosteroids or estrogens) or exercise. Most twitches are benign and not caused by diseases or disorders. These twitches often affect the eyelids, calf or thumb and are often triggered by stress or anxiety. These twitches can come and go and will not last for more than a few days, they are normal and quite common so not something that you should be too worried about.

There are some, more sever, muscle twitches that can be caused by nervous system conditions. These conditions include; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS - Lou Gehrig’s disease), damage to the nerve that leads to the muscle, muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy and weak muscles (myopathy). Other symptoms that can signal a nervous system disorder include a loss of muscle size (wasting), weakness and a loss of, or change in sensation. These muscle twitches and sudden movements will be far more obvious that the common, smaller twitches and will reoccur frequently and last longer than a few days.

If you have been experiencing abnormal muscle twitches or any other symptoms alongside them, you should seek advice from your doctor. Make note of how often you experience the twitches and where they have been occurring. Any information you can give will help your doctor come up with a diagnosis.

Twitching or sudden body movements happen due to several causes and in several ways. These sudden movements of the body are involuntary and are probably caused due to certain medical conditions. There are different kinds of such sudden involuntary movement's like- Tics: this comprises of repetitive movement of a group of muscles like neck, shoulders, face etc. Tics are generally caused due to nervous system disorder or Tourette syndrome. Another common kind is that of Spasms. Certain medical conditions can lead to a person having sudden movements in the way of a spasm, like: being muscular fibrillation, Kidney failure-late stages of kidney failure can cause twitching and sudden movements, Motor neuron disease can cause generalized twitching. Then there are many other kinds like seizer and shivering.

Has anyone in your family(GENETICAL relations) have this problem?If they do I am sorry to say you better meet your doctor,ask him if it is genetical.
It could ge a genetical disease caused by autosomal dominant gene on chromosome number 4' which causes invoulantry twitching of voluntary muscles.

It is only a chance .Don't worry.I am sure your doctor would have some medicines to control it.TAKE CARE.

Here is the answer, that no one could give, I do have the same problem, it is caused by, interference of the bleady planet, who operates the dead souls,

it feels like some thing or a creature or a fast travelling  earthworm enered in the musscles,

the best thing to get ride of it suddenly is,  TAKE A BLUNT  PEN OR A BLUNT TIP STICK AND HOLD ON THE PLACE OF THE MUSSEL SHAKING, AND START PRESSING ON THE PORTION, APPLY MORE PRESSURE CONTINIOUSLY, UNTIL, IN FEW SECONDS OR 1,2 MINUTES SUDDENLY  BELOW THE BLUNT TIP YOU MAY FIND THAT SOME CREATURE IS STRUCK THEN GIVE MORE PRESSURE, AND IT WILL BLINK AND VANISH, FROM THAT AREA,
