Thank you all for the nice replies, I appreciate it! I went to another Neurologist and he did not want to do an EMG or MRI. He did several physical tests and said my strength is normal and he did not see anything that would warrant further tests. He said it's benign so I have to live with it and hope it goes away eventually. Google makes it much worse as every article about fasciculations always points to ALS but then mentions caffeine, stress, lack of sleep, etc as other causes which is confusing to read.

I diagnosed myself with Parkinson's. I had constipation and went to a GI, he told me to take fiber.. It didn't help much, so I told my OMD I thought I had Parkinson's.Went to a neurologist and he confirmed it, Gave me NuPro and I have no motor symptoms. I think I had it at least 2 years before and now I have had it forn2 more years. The people here don't know I have Parkinson's until I tell them. .The foundation said I would probably die of something else before I got to the last stages. Raisins !/2 cup in hot water, soak 15 minutes eat as often as you need and drink plenty of fluid.
