Re: Anyone had body jerking during sleep
hi marsha....yeah the jerking gets me too. it's worse on days that have been bad, and better on the better days. eric tells me all about it if i don't wake up from it myself. it used to wake me up more before i started taking my trazadone at 250mg @ bedtime. now i sleep through most of it and my poor honey gets to endure it all alone. even on the good nights it's mostly like a annoying twitching of my muscles that i can't control. a few months back though i started to take extra magnesuim everyday to help with the tingling and numbness in my legs/arms/face, it still doesn't help get rid of the twitching or jerking completely, but maybe it's worth a try for you? i know i did notice an improvement slowly over the first month that i tried it. now i can definitely tell when i forget it for a day or two. once i start taking it again, the jerking gets a bit better. hope this helps or you get some relief somehow. glad to hear that you are finally sleeping with the ambien. i know how bad we need are sleep. sweet dreams.
