    whole body jerking

    <I have trouble sleeping from involuntary jerking.>

    I had similar experiences which eventually led to a whole body jerking - one time I counted over forty in one hour. I was totally exhausted. I also woke up with them and was on my stomach bouncing off the bed. My husband managed to get me to an ER where myoclonic jerks were dx. I take klonopin and have been free of them except on very rare occasions. I am very happy about that! These started about six months after a head injury. That was ten years ago. I have so many neurological symptoms it is very hard to get a dx or get any help. Have recently been to NYC and am going back in a few weeks. Still have hope.
