Twitcher, it might just be due to an electrolyte imbalance (sodium, potassium, magnesium, etc.), or it might be due to something pressing on the nerve that supplies the area. You can try taking a little bit of salt and something like Slow mag® and Slow K® for a couple of days, but if it doesn’t help you will have to see your doctor. Good luck.
