Twitches and Muscular Jerks?

I am a 22 year old male college student who has been extremely stressed with school and work. For the last year and a half, I have been having muscular jerks or twitches.. Basically i would be waking up in the morning after about 5-6 hours of sleep, and have a twitch. It's almost like a flash (blink of an eye) in which I would lose all energy in my body, or just certain parts of my body such as legs or arms. My eyes would also roll back. The severity of these would be falling to the ground with no control in my legs for just a brief second. It only happens when I am tired or mentally exhausted in the mornings or at night. If I had to compare it to anything, it would be the feeling of dozing off in class and waking up really fast before falling asleep completely. PLEASE let me know if you have any ideas. I hate what this is limiting me to do :/

Re: Twitches and Muscular Jerks?

It almost sounds like you might be having some sort of seizure. These can be brought on by stress and lack of sleep. You might want to post on the Epilepsy board and see what those with more experience with this sort of thing have to say
