Everyone experiences a "myclonic" jerk shortly after going to sleep (the feeling of falling) hence 'falling asleep'.
However the jerking and twitching you describe is also what I had for many years after being bit in early 90's. I had that even before I experienced any of the debilitating symptoms that were to follow as time went on.
Another thing that is similar is that startle reflex which caused me to jump at the slightest noise.
In addition to ringing, clicking in my ears I also had the swooshing in my head that was an obvious distraction when trying to go asleep.
With treatment this goes away. I have been in treatment for 2 years and my husband says it is gone. Hope you get better soon.
