    I have been experiencing twitching in my right pectoral muscle - today i have had intermittent twitches, even six hours after lifting.

    I had the same sensation three days ago after swimming for an hour (and have not been in the pool for a while previous).

    My questions are pretty basic - 1) what is causing this, 2) how can I treat and prevent from happening in the future.

    Any information is appreciated!

    It's completely normal.

    It will go away.

    Do not obsess...

    My muscles begin to twitch when I am starting to relax and drift off to sleep. That is how I know that sleep is not far away. It just started a year ago and the doctor said not to worry about it, it is perfectly normal.
