If you look up hypnic jerk, though, it seems to be associated with people waking up in the middle of the night with some muscle movement, often accompanied by falling dreams.
This bed shaking, though, happens when we are awake and also is not accompanied (at least for me) by any kind of falling "dream" or hallucination. My muscles in my legs are completely still when the bed shakes. (I used to think it was my leg twitching so I paid close attention to this.) Also, I do think I have hypnic jerk from time to time, so I can see the obvious differences. This morning, for instance, I dreamed I was about to trip down some stairs and I woke up as my I was trying to catch myself, all out of breath. Or maybe hypnic jerk is as simple as your muscles twitching as you fall asleep, which also happens to me often. In any case, I definitely don't think it's related to the bed shaking.
Also, I want to say once or twice it did feel like someone was sitting on my bed or there was weight on my legs. It's a very creepy sensation. Although I'm not sure I believe in ghosts or spirits, I had a creepy feeling around that room because the door would also close by itself and at times it sounded like someone was playing with my toys as I was sleeping. I've experienced this problem at my mom's house, dad's house, and on my futon, so I'm more likely inclined to believe it it something about me rather than the beds I sleep on. I've never had it happen when I sleep next to someone, so for awhile I thought it might be in my head. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.

It may be a peripheral nerve disorder.

This has happened to me several times. The shaking awakens me and I sit up in bed and the whole room seems to be shaking. I live in CA and have been thru many earthquakes and it feels exactly like that, except no one in my home feels it but me. Happens most often when I am napping during the day. I have no medical problems and am very healthy. It does not scare me at all; it feels just like an earthquake.

OMG I can't tell you all how happy I am to hear this. Not that it is good you all have felt it but, I on very slight occasion now at almost age 40 have felt it a few times. But I also remember as a child of maybe 8-10 I would wake up from a sleep and tell my parents that the bed was jumping up and down. It felt so real and my step-mother would just ignore it and Father would allow me to lay with him on the sofa for a while then carry me back to bed. It was horrifying to feel as a child that a real monster was under my bed and now I just basically don't pay attention to it. And that no one believed me was even more scary. Ty for this thread at least I know I am not crazy.

For the record -- I have no muscle twitching, no physical sensations at all -- the shaking is happening around me. I am awake and completely calm. I always go to the CA earthquake site to find out if there was a small quake in my area. There never is. Now, I just wait it out. It has become a normal thing. Only happens a few times a year. I do not feel any supernatural forces in the room. I do dream a lot and have experienced lucid dreaming in which I can control the storyline, but this shaking experience does not seem to correlate with that. It just feels like a mild earthquake is happening in my house. I've even called people and told them to turn on their radios to find out about the earthquake and they say: What earthquake? There is no explanation for this that I can find anywhere.

i too have this problem, i don't know what it is but it really freaks me out, i went to the doctors recently about a different thing i get where i can smell weird smells and i cant move in the day and he suggested it might be a form of epilepsy, he didn't send me to a specialist though but just said "if you start losing conciousness come back" that was really helpful doc!

Right after I posted that a few days ago I was napping again and I could feel it happening -- but this time, I did not wake up. I could feel it happening in my sleep and for the first time, it really felt like the vibrations were within me, not outside of me. Perhaps I have a new awareness because I have been giving it more thought on this blog ...? Anyway, now I am really beginning to think it may be a biological thing, a physical thing, whereas before I would have sworn that it was all EXTERNAL. Weird. And ONLY when sleeping. I think this may be a nervous system/brain thing after all. My sleep patterns have been weird since my third child was born two years ago. He does not sleep well at all and I am up at least twice a night. Maybe it has something to do with that. Two years without a full night's sleep may be ruining me ...!

Same thing happened to me last night
This happened to me last night. I had been asleep for hours. It was morning, and I woke up because of the bed moving back and forth 6-8 times from the foot of the mattress. I know I was not jerking around, having spasms or sleeping. Something is going on...

Re: Shaking/vibrating bed
The "aluna cat" is a blessing. The phenomenon indicates that you are being aided in your spiritual journey. ~

Join the club. It has happened to me on a fairly regular basis as well, and it is not attributed to bed springs, as I have a sleep number bed. The shaking of the bed comes before sleeping, and I feel that I am lucid, because I am aware that the bed is shaking. The last time it happened, I saw and felt a cat jump into bed with me. I don't have any pets.

Experienced User
You may want to consider placing a video camera at the foot of your bed and see if you can video-tape the occurrence of this phenomenon. You may be better able to tell what exactly is happening if you see it the next morning in the 3rd person. Otherwise, perhaps your MD could get more insight as you discuss it with him.

Dear friends,

I wanted to share to you my experience... A few nights ago I was lying in bed waiting for myself to fall asleep.. Probably within 15 minutes of me losing awareness of me being awake, I felt my bed shaking very rapidly (head to toes). Additionally, I could hear the frame of my bed creek as it felt like someone was nudging their knee against the end of my bed. I lied there to make sure my legs weren't moving. So I got out of bed and stood up and saw, felt, and heard my bed continue to shake...I even checked around to make sure no critters were clawing away. I lied back down and the shaking subdued to the point of just my mattress shaking. I turned on the tv to try and ease my mind then I eventually fell asleep. Just thought I would share.

I'm amazed at the number of people experiencing this phenomenon. I've been going through this myself for several years. It isn't the muscle jerk that can happen when transitioning into sleep. I've felt the "Jerk" and know the difference. Whenever it happens, I consult various websites that monitor seismic activity, but have found only one instance of an earthquake at the same time as the shaking experience. I do have a cat, but I sleep with my door closed for the specific purpose of keeping her out while I sleep. I do not have any heart problems or circulatory issues that would cause a vibration to travel through the mattress. Lastly, the shaking/tremors often wake me from a seemingly sound sleep at which time I still my body in an effort to determine if I'm the cause. Unfortunately, more often then not, there will be a few more shakes or tremors once again leaving me clueless as to the cause. At this point, I've learned to live with it and quickly fall back to sleep. Weather the cause be physical, mental, spiritual, or metaphysical, I suffer no pain and all is well in the morning.

Bed Shaking Etc.
this happend to me also when i was a teenager. i was on a trip sharing a room with another girl and we each had a twin bed. i was sleeping and suddenly it felt like the wind started blowing in the room so i woke up and then my bed started shaking. i immediately jumped onto her bed and the wind stopped and she woke up to see the bed shaking but it stopped as soon as she saw it. i have also felt 'things' get into bed with me on a regular basis. it feels like house pets or little kids. and i have also felt the sensation of someone sitting on the bed and also getting up from sitting on the bed. this happens all hours of the day or night no matter what is going on.

bed shaking
People, this problem i aslo go through, not to mention i woke up once feeling as though i was being spooned, single... not being spooned! and at times straddled, again, single! what we are going through is a spiritual thing, and im afraid to say that it can't be good. ever notice these phenomenas do not happen when one is under some influence. i am not the greatest example of a Christian, but i try hard and the better walk i live, the worst my experiences at night get. there is a battle going on wiether you believe this or not. most of you i noticed experience this while waking up, if you were only aware of what went on before you awoke. i am one who is aware of my dreams even while im dreaming them. and remember everything after waking up. all i can say my friends is pray!! we are people who have a stronger spiritual connection then others, and we are being attacked now so that we fear this instead of embracing it. do not acknowledge the shaking, ignore it as much as possible, contrary to what some have said. just pray to Christ Jesus.

your friend in battle

Allright guys, this has happened to me twice already since I tried channeling with spirits. I'm a spiritual person, and the first night I woke up because of the bed shaking, and for some reason I was positive that a paranormal activity was the cause. It's not a violent shake, but it sure did scare the hell out of me. When the first time it happened I jumped out of my bed, tried to wake my brother up but he didn't. So I go to my living room to watch TV in order to forget about the incident. I turn on the TV and my DVD player turns on then switches to the radio without my control. I remember I prayed for 3 hours, and I promised myself that I wouldn't channel with spirits again. The second night was yesterday, when the shaking woke me up. The shaking itself last for few seconds. At first I thought it was my bed, then the second time I was assure that it was only my body. For those of you having this problem, and are freaked out about it, don't please. There a spirit in contact with you for a reason. I'm guessing that yesterdays incidence isn't going to my last, so instead of being terrified, accept it and thank your higher self. I don't have any sleeping disorders or whatever, I'm positive that a spirit is present.

Demon spirits are causing the problems that you all have mentioned.You need to become born-again, and make sure you attend a charismatic church where they pray in tongues. Also, you can look up �deliverace ministries� on the web.

i had the bed shacking experiance, but it felt like i was in my mind and i was gettin closed in, i could see myself flickering and was able to say thoughts to myself, but i was afraid so i forced myself up, lie straight back down im back in the realm again i try not to panic but i get crostophobic and wake up again, breath for a couple of mins and then go back into basic dream world... but i think you can control the state without fear, which i have lots of. i'm glad im not alone.
