I Need Some Info Quick.....please Please

Please if anyone can help or give me there experience on this...my fiance just detoxed down to a very low dose of OC and is now on something that is talked about on this board and doing real good, only small cravings later in the pm,when he is almost asleep, he gets these jerks, where his legs just pop up and his body jerks..and it scares the heck out of him, I have been up detoxing the past week and I have kept my eye on him and whqat he tells me is he feels like he stops breathing, does the body jerk thing, its NOT restless legs, his detox is done, but it is scary, it just happened, he had just fell asleep and his whole body kinda jerked he called my name and he says it always feels like he cant catch his breath, but I know he is because I am sitting right here, has anyone else had this post detoxing, someone told me it had a name, like when you take a lot of opiates, it does supress your breathing and it has something to do with fight or flight, like your body does not understand if it is dying or just going into a deep sleep.has this happened to anyone else, when using or after they have detoxed or gone on some kind of Meth or Sub...........thanks guys, you are the best

Not to scare you, but it sounds like a seizure to me.

No need to worry these are myloclonic jerks and are very common when using narcotics........Dave
