Hello,
Such twitchings are found in acid-base imbalance in the body, low sodium, calcium and vit D deficiency, Alzheimer’s disease, muscle fasciculation syndrome(a disorder of the nervous system characterized by the uncontrolled twitching (fasciculation) of muscle groups in various parts of the body),Motor neuron disease like ALS, chronic fatigue syndrome, hypoparathyroidism or spinal causes.

I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and please do keep us posted on how you are doing. Warm regards.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. I may have those defects you mentioned but I have no idea if Alzheimer's disease is possible. What are other signs and symptoms of Alzheimer's disease?

Tnx again.

Hello,
Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia. The symptoms are gradual in onset and include memory disturbances, problems in abstract thinking, confusion, disorientation etc. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a physician for these muscle twitchings to confirm the diagnosis.  
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
