Red face Alarming Muscle Twitch

Hey everyone - I'm new to the boards and I'm very concerned about my girlfriend. I've tried to figure out what her problem is online, but I'm not finding anything that seems to fit.

The problem is this: Everytime she's with me and we lay down or even sit down and relax, her left leg (upper thigh) begins to twitch and spasm. It doens't hurt her, and it only happens around me, when relaxing. She had some blood work done, but everything came back normal and they told her that if it continued, she should go see a neurologist. Without having to go to that extreme ($ is a little tight), does anyone have any idea what it could be?

I was thinking vitamin deficiency, but if that was the case, wouldn't it happen when I wasn't around?
What I can't understand is why it's only around me, and only when relaxing.

Any help or ideas would be VERY much appreciated!
Thanks all,
The Concerned Girlfriend

Is she on any medications? I have random muscle spasms all the time. They don't hurt at all but I can't control them. I usualy get them in my arms or legs, sometimes even around my eyes. Yesterday actually my tounge went into a spasm, but it was more amusing than anything else. All this because of my medicine which works through the nervous system. Anyway, if she doesn't take any meds this won't apply, but it's just a thought.

No, she isn't on any meds - that would make sense if she were though... =(
Any other ideas out there?
