I'm honestly having the same issue. Myjerking is at night. I'll lay down to go to sleep and within 5 mins I will know wether I'm up or not or I'll actually get a good nights rest. I seen a neurologist and had a MRI done. I was diagnosed with chiari malformation. Sad however, I have done so much research on the diagnosis I don't understand how this is causing the in controllable jerks of my legs and arms. It's as if an electrical surge is going through my body. There is absolutely no sleep when these issues occur. Lately, when this situation occurs I've been either punching or clawing myself and my partner. I'm honestly tired of doctors and even a neurologist looking at me like I'm crazy. I'm literally lost right now. I'm not sure what to do anymore. The jerks and lack of sleep are becoming more consistent and I really don't know where to turn. My partner says its almost like I'm being possessed. If anyone can help or knows what's wrong please write back. Thank you so much.
