My body jerks all over

Nor sure where to post this but here goes....I started having involuntary body movements about 2 years ago. They are like jerks I guess u could call them. It started with my legs and now happens to my arms, shoulders, head, side of body, and even my ring finger. These body parts will jerk for no reason and it happens at anytime of the day. I am becoming concerned as it is getting worse. Does anyone have any ideas of what board I should post this on or perhaps does anyone have a similar experience and any ideas as to what could be causing this. I also will have the sweats at anytime of the day or night but I have been associating this with menopause as I am 48 and have not had a period for over a year. Sometimes I wake up and I am drenched from head to foot. My hair will be as wet as if I washed it and I will have to change my pj's and my bed linens. any help would be sooo appreciated. Thanks in advance

Re: My body jerks allover

I'm sorry you have suffered for so long with this. Have you seen a neurologist and gotten and EEG and nerve tests? I had a friend who had a lot of jerking motions and she couldn't even sleep and had a hard time eating. They found out she had dystonia of her muscles and she got botox shots which helped a little and had to take a lot of medications to relax her. It was awful. I hope you find out what is the problem. Best to you.
