i seem to have been getting this pretty badly recently. today i dozed off in the bus for half a second and jolted to awake. i think i even grunted. it was a bit embarassing, but what can you do?

and now i've been up all night having been kepted awake by twitches and then some more jolts. what a pain. in the end i gave up and took a mild tranquilizer which tends to help me with the jolts, so hopefully i'll be sleeping soon.

myoclunus is common with bfs...i had it real bad at first ...now its real mild ..i kinda like it. myoclonus is usually is caused a phycological kinda trauma...like stressing out or anxiety...(putting your poor little mind through hell). klonopin will take care of it...but if you like it...i suggest not taking any medication for it.

Yep, me too. I still get a limb jerks here and there, which is also known as a myoclonic jerks. It doesn't have to be the whole body.

nocturnal myoclonus

I get the jerks every night and kolonopin helps.it sucks when you are on a bus and your body jerks but it could be worse .
