From your description, it appears that you pehaps are sensing the muscle 'Fasiculations'.
Muscle 'Fasiculations' are localized,involuntary contractions of a group of muscle fibers.If a superficial muscle is involved, it may be visible as well.
There are a number of factors which may cause this, some of which are...
- magnesium deficiency
- certain stimulants (pseudoephedrine, caffine, anti-cholinergic drugs, bronchodilators etc)
- Lyme's dsease
Therefore, have your doctor examine you and thus the condition and its cause could be fully elucidated.
