the bouncing of the leg when up on toes is a sign of hyper reflexia, it usually goes along with muscle twitches, but they are not exactly the same thing.
It is a self sustaining reflex action.
myoclonic twitches are a sign of an excitable muscle unit or myoneural junction.
Mg helps some folks by decreasing 'nerve' or reflex excitability. It also calms excitable muscle membranes.
