> Firstly I'm finding that I often experience minor muscle twitches, for no apparent reason, especially when I in bed (trying vainly to sleep)
> What could be causing this?

could it have anything to do with your medication?

> Secondly I've suddenly got really paraniod about coffee.
> I only drink it first thing in the morning.

when you say, only first thing in the morning, do you mean one cup or 10 cups first thing in the morning?

>Could it still be affecting my sleep at night?

i think it depends on quantity, IMO i think it is unlikely. Coffee is wonderful and GOOD for you, in moderation I dont think it should affect the sleep of a regular user/

> When I stopped drinking coffee for a few days I did sleep better, but I was also away from home, which could of had an effect.

I would test it out at home

> I really don't want to face mornings without coffee, but I think I'll have to withdraw.

:-( mornings without coffee

> I've heard coffee does deplete Magnesium, Calcium and Pottasium because its an acid diuretic.

Its probably a combination but I dont imagine that 1 cup could deplete you (but im not an expert)

> I think it does make the twitches worse

test it out at home
