Hey Everyone
I have a weird question that i hope someone will know something about. This is something that's been happening for a LONG time...maybe a year and a half...but i guess u just get so used to weird things that u just think 'o well...something ELSE!'. When i lay down to take a nap and don't go deeply to sleep, i wake up trembling all over. Not just a little bit, but ALL OVER. Legs, arms, hands. At times i can see the tremble, but sometimes its just something i can feel. Does this make sense to anyone??

I think I know what you mean, I describe it as my insides are vibrating and kinda buzzing. I only notice it when I'm trying to fall asleep or when I'm relaxing. Only part of my body that trembles is my hand. I guess it's just another one of those wierd things.

I don't know if I have the same thing, but I call them twitches. They are mostly in my face and legs. It's like a muscle just starts going and I can't stop it. Some times you can see it and sometimes i can feel it with out seeing it. That and I get a tremor in my left hand which really stinks cuz I am left handed.

Hey Rhonda,

Funny you should ask this question, I've been meaning to ask a similar one for a while now.

For years now, off and on, I get an awful feeling in my chest if I am woken up suddenly, esp. if I've just drifted off to sleep.  It feels like my heart is beating a million beats per second.  I once wore a halter monitor to check for any heart irregularities because of it, but nothing registered.   It must be tremors or spasms (if those are different things).  I always check my heart rate when it happens and its normal. 

Once in a while I do feel it in my arms like you mentioned, but I'm ususally so distracted by my chest feeling so weird I don't pay attention to the rest of me.  Does that sound anything like what is happening with you?

It also sounds to me like one of the various sensations Rondab that i call Quivering. I have the shocks, twitches, and tremros but this moving of the whole body doing that feels like a quiver to me with also what shar mentioned heart takng off on its own.

honestly just what you said, another one of those oddities, but i do think it all fits into your larger pic with the ON and other sensory things.

I hope you know your not alnoe, because your not!

It's harmless jut a little unsettling.

Great question - cause I get them too - they seem to me to be inner trembling. I hate them - they make me feel anxious. I get them more when I lay down for a nap in the afternoon. I wake up in a semi panic, as I do believe that it is the inner trembling that has woken me up.

I do not get them very often when I go to bed at night, unless I get up for some reason after I have slept for awhile, and then when I go back to bed, and lay there - I get the sensation.

Interesting to see that seveal other get the same thing.

Have a nice day
