User avatar Hello --

What you're experiencing is most likely muscule fasiculation (twitching or fluttering, coarse or fine fasiculation) and is fairly common in the general population. It will often begin in a certain location and just stay there, or sometimes occur in more than one location, but rarely many places at once. It should have no relationship to ovarian cysts or anything else, but simply occurs at random in most cases.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
