In our opinion you are suffering from Myoclonus. It is a brief, involuntary twitching of the muscle or perhaps a group of muscles. It describes a medical sign and, generally, is not a proper diagnosis of an illness. Brief twitches are perfectly normal. The myoclonic twitches are usually caused by sudden muscle contractions, they can also derive from brief lapses of contraction. Contractions are known as positive myoclonus, relaxations are called negative myoclonus.
The most typical time for individuals to encounter them is while falling asleep, but myoclonic jerks will also be a sign of a number of neurological disorders. Hiccups are also a kind of myoclonic jerk specifically affecting the diaphragm. Also whenever a spasm is brought on by another person it is known as a "provoked spasm". Shuddering attacks with babies also fall within this category.
Myoclonic jerks may occur alone or perhaps in sequence, inside a pattern or without pattern. They might occur infrequently or many times each minute. Usually, myoclonus is one of several signs in a wide selection of central nervous system disorders such as ms, Parkinsons disease, Alzheimer's, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), serotonin toxicity, certain cases of Huntingtons disease, some types of epilepsy, and occasionally in intracranial hypotension. Some researchers indicate that jerks persistently might even cause early tremors.
In almost all instances by which myoclonus is caused by nervous system disease it is preceded by other symptoms; for example, in CJD it is generally a late-stage clinical feature that appears after the patient has already began to exhibit gross neurological deficits.
So in our opinion you should consult a good neurophysician and after thorough examination he can do the diagnosis.
For treatment the mineral calcium, in the form of supplements or antacids, has been widely known to dispel the commonly experienced sleep myoclonus, or hypnic jerk, and also restless leg syndrome. Please take the medicine after consulting your doctor.
