You should speak to your doctor about your fasciculation symptoms if they continue for an extended period of time without getting any better. Generally, if the cause is benign, symptoms will disappear within a few days. However, muscle twitching that occurs for extended periods of time may be a sign of something more serious, such as Lou Gherig's disease. You should consult a health care provider if you continue to experience muscle twitching.
