Hey guys, I am a visitor from the Lyme forum.
I am some where around 90% better from Lyme, but have one lingering issue that I am not entirely sure is even Lyme related, but rather anxiety related, as I have had this problem in the past.
Does anyone here have involuntary jerks as you fall asleep? Mine usually coincide with a dream. For example, if I dream I am boxing while falling asleep I will move my arm and wake myself. It usually happens to either my feet or hands, and only happens as I drift into sleep, sometimes upwards of ten times before finally falling asleep.
When I was experiencing a very stressful time at work last year (before Lyme), I would wake up after drifting off with sudden loss of breath. This would happen for a few hours before finally falling asleep. So maybe this jerking thing is stress related.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
