Meaning disorders specifically like myokymia, myoclonus (positive and negative) and fasciculations. From the section of the literature I've seen, sometimes passing mentions are made when the disorder doesn't cause muscular atrophy (such as in this article), but nothing seems to be said if muscular hypertrophy, increases in RMT, or even increases in strength are actively caused by the disorder.

Theoretically, I can't see why hypertrophy and increased residual muscle tension aren't potential outcomes of such disorders, apart from reasons such as limited time for rest due to a high frequency of contraction, and stimuli that may be of insufficiently high intensity and/or frequency to induce noticeable changes in the muscle when the stimuli (e.g the twitches and spasms) stop existing.
