New symptom what does it mean??

Hi All,

I just got back from my two hour Glucose test, next week is my EMG and nerve conduction test. My new symptom that I have experienced in the last week is this jerking of my legs, arms, shoulders, when I am falling asleep. It's something I have never experienced before I literally jump, I've read that this is normal if you don't have any neurological things going on. But if you have other symptoms it can be another piece to the puzzle os MS.

Please fill me in on your experiences, and if this is another fun thing that just happens...

Thanks so much!!

Lisa

Re: New symptom what does it mean??

Lisamarie,

I was sleep starting/jerking since I was a baby. I do not think it is indicative of your problems. As your mind is entering sleep, your "operating system" is not going into sleep mode at the same rate. This can cause "misfires" in your nervous system as your body relaxes. You can ask the neurologist, but I have never attributed my jerking as MS related. I hope this helps. Do let us know what your doctor thinks.

Yup. Nope. I have to agree with Jayhawk. As far as I know, Ive never jerked like you describe; however my husband does it ALL the time falling asleep. It scares me - he sleeps through it. He does not have any neurological symptoms at all- so its not a MS thing.
