Has anyone had jerking body movements? For ex, if I turn my head, I feel a little jerk in my head. Also, if I reach for something my arm will jerk a little.. its happened w/my legs too.. is this part of lyme or babesia?

Yes, I have the head jerking and sometimes in my  limbs if I am lifting something heavy, etc. Are you in treatment and what does your doctor say about it? I do not have a LLMD yet so I would like to know what he thinks about the jerking.

yes, im in treatment... when i originally told my llmd i described it as twitching which is not what i believe it is now.. she said it will go away and that she had it too at one time.. she has lyme disease also... what do you think its caused by ?

I was thinking something with the autonomic nervous system, I have what they call autonomic deregulation. Causes things like my body temp with be up one minute and down the next. It is caused by toxins, I am also a mold injured patient.

can the autmonomic deregulation be cured? i also have the temperature thing.. if toxins are released, do you feel better?

try googleing myoclonic jerks. yours sounds like action myoclonus. i average about 9 involuntary jerks(hiccups as i like to call them) a minute. probably from injury to peripheral nerves or disturbance of the CNS. check it out.

I do not have them jerking as often.. I'd say maybe ten times per day.. Is this something that will resolve with treatment?..Now that I think about it, it was the first sign I had lyme at the end of July..
