twitching and blood pressure medication?

All of my twitching started in mid-June, shortly after I started taking medication for (borderline) high blood pressure. Is it possible that blood pressure medication caused the first twitches in my finger, which have since gone on to colonize my calves and feet?

I ask because I know blood pressure meds can throw off electrolyte balances (sodium / potassium for sure, and perhaps others). I've been on three different medications - a diuretic, beta blocker, and now ACE inhibitor. Twitching seems to have gotten worse with the ACE inhibitor.

Anyone else have twitching start after going on blood pressure medication?
