hi velanie
i'm sorry you are having trouble. there are so many things that could be causing the twitching finger and muscle trouble. if you went to the dr now he will most likely say wait awhile and see if it goes away. in all probability it will just go away on its own.
here are a few things that might help make it go more quickly....
take a multi vitamin each day
make sure you drink enough water
get enough aerobic exercise
try to eat a balanced diet of vegetables, fruit, fish, chicken meats and dairy products
if this doesnt work you should see you primary care dr so he can run a few tests.....let us know how you do....pete
