I would contact your doc ASAP as it may be a medication reaction. You don't want to choke or things to get worse. You are on some very strong drugs and your body may just have had enough of them, or something else could be going on. It's important you get seen ASAP. My son had twitching and ended up having a very bad seizure, so these things can get worse. It's probably just a med thing, but its best to be on the safe side. Med reactions can get bad too.
Love, Marji

 Nona, I agree with Marj. This could be a reaction to a medication.
 I sometimes get muscle spasms and twitching, but they are random and shortlived.
 The twitching usually occurs when I am overtired. It happens in my eyes, arms, thighs
 and feet.
 Hope this resolved for you soon!
