The sudden jaw jerk, opening you experience could be hypnic jerks, a lot of people have that, and it can become more prominent with stress, anxiety, irregular sleeping and muscle tension.

So is It different from the jaw jerk seen in bulbar ALS?

It's the same, except that in ALS, Motor Neurons are dying whereas otherwise the cause is stress, anxiety, irregular sleeping and muscle tension. Just my interpretation.

Yesterday my shaws spasmed and shut as I drifted of to sleep. Really scares me. Is this normal?

You are under the influence of a lot of HA. This has an abnormal effect on the body.

So it has nothing to do with abnormal jaw reflexes?

Nope. not at all. jaw reflexes should be tested when you are awake, not on the edge of sleeping :)
