I have never had that happen but I would maybe get it checked especially since it seems to be spreading all over.

Might be anxiety or stress.....

I get the twitch in my thumb or fingers every now and then.  If you stretch your arms and shoulders, it'll likely go away.  I have a pinched nerve in my neck and back which is likely responsible.  I also get them in my eye which I attribute to nerves/anxiety.  

Ask your doc about it during your next visit, but I don't think I'd get too upset about it.

 I've heard of anxiety/stress causing that. I would schedule a doctor's appointment only if you are super concerned or have other weird symptoms.

It can be a mineral deficiency ... or a lot of other things.

Try checking to see if you eat lots of fresh, wholesome food before looking for other signs of ALS or anything dire...

I would definitely get that checked out for your own piece of mind

It is being caused by your nerves, see a neurologist.
