Twitching in bed

8 posts in this topic

I twitch so bad when I'm sleeping, that my husband can't sleep in the same bed with me. I wake myself up all night long. I also always wake up with one arm up in the air, it don't fall down, it's really weird. Do any of you have any of these problems? Gizelle

Gizelle,

I did that for about six weeks. One time I woke up with both arms and both legs in the air. It was restless legs and arms which can be due to low iron. My hemoglobin was 6.1 and I had to be hospitalized and have 2 transfusions. I have watermelon stomach(GAVE) which is lesions in your stomach that bleed spontaneously. Do you have this? How long have you been doing it? I think you should check your hemoglobin level.

Take care,

Nan

Wow that's really different. I've never heard of that before. The only thing that comes to mind is restless leg syndrome. But this sounds like it involves more than just legs.


Take care and stay warm,

Hi

 

My hands twitch but I don't know why :unsure: ...my husband hates that too, says my hand moving keeps him awake if I have my arm around him.


Sending good wishes your way!

I twitch too, but I find it's while falling into the deep sleep rather than the twilight sleep. I actually welcome it as I know the deep sleep is coming soon which I so badly need.

I went thru the terrible and I do mean TERRIBLE twitches. So bad my primary care physician thought it was the beginning of Parkinson's. He sent me to a Neurologist and come to find out, my twitching was caused by Reglan I was taking for my tummy. I have restless legs as well, but this twitching was different. I stopped the reglan and the muscle twitching stopped. I feel for ya!


Peace :)

My hands, arms, legs, and feet do that alot. It must be another one of the strange things that happen with Scleroderma.

I twitch like crazy all the time, but especially when I am laying down & trying to go to sleep. I will have going through another EMG on Wednesday (had one a year ago that was fine). To me, it feels like my body is trying to relax into the matress but everything has to jerk into a relaxed postion & it takes a while to get there.

 

During the day, I twitch all over, especially legs, like I've been startled... maybe I do it in my sleep too, I don't know. My toes twitch, like pop up quick (1 toe every now & then). Who KNOWS....lol. I hope somebody has some good answers for ya~!
