Jerking Movements

Postby Gentle Male on December 14th, 2002, 1:50 am

Sometimes I get jerking movements, especially when just starting to rest. Along with it I get a split second shock, startling or tickling sensation inside my body which goes to the point that jumps or moves. Does anyone out there have this?

oh yeah, the limb and body jerks. They are a form of "myoclonic jolts" which are common right after you fall asleep. A good percentage of people with BFS get jerks ranging from a hand jump to an ankle jerk that'll make your foot jump, an arm jump or even your whole body sometimes might just kind of, jump. I get them too, pretty much every day in some way or another. Usually just a hand or a foot will jump while sitting there watching TV or even when I'm typing on the computer. It is pretty common and myoclonic jolts are considered benign as well.

Have them everyday, use to be only when I went to sleep before the BFS but I have them other times now, minor ones. They dont really bother me though, I try and laugh them off.
