    Muscle Spasm in Quadriceps

    I have been experiencing muscle spasms in my right quad almost for a prolonged period of time. It all started last night at around 8 pm and I've been continuously having them since then. Not that it is painfull but the when I place my hand on my the outer & upper part of my quads I can clearly feel it twitching and it's fairly annoying.

    Anything I can do about this?
