It happens to me every once in a while. And it happened to a girl i stayed with last night while we were layin' in bed.
You're layin'g there and you're about to fall asleep and you may or may not be dreaming(Yes, i dream vividly right before I'm asleep).
All of the sudden your entire body just JUMPS. WTF?

Now....I was told it's caused by an electrolyte imbalance in the body.

Is there a name for it?
Is that the real reason?
Wtf?

Why look a man in the eye when you can shoot him in the back?

Yeah its not generally enjoyable. It usually only happens to me if I fall down or am about to die in a dream though, which doesn't happen that often.

It happens to me when there's an unexpected noise when i'm almost asleep.

Also if something touches me, like my cat.

I dreamed I was in a fight (kinda in the inbetween stages of being awake and sleep).

When I woke up, your mother had a bloody nose.

Kidding btw.

That happens to me, too. Right when you're about to fall asleep your entire body just jerks.

That's what I'm looking for. I heard it was caused by an electrolyte imbalance...once again.

I'm curious is all.

Yeah. I'm usually falling, about to fall, or about to get hit by something.

It's bugging the hell outta me and I wanna know what causes it. Lol

It's called myoclonus. As far as I'm aware, it's a normal thing that just happens sometimes when you're falling asleep - it's most likely not caused by any electrolyte imbalance or any other disease come to that.

Quote by Captain Scarlet
yeah i remember seeing somewhere about it being an electrolyte imbalance but its not proven


Well...


fuck.......

If I have a dream when i'm falling, and I wake up just before I hit the ground, I'll sort of jump as I wake up.

it only happens to me in really believable dreams.

luckily, most of my dreams are pretty weird, and involve things like dancing tubas. Or vampires. Lots of vampires.

lol after reading the posts, i finally understand. u mean like when u dream ur falling, and u wake up, that feeling. ya sometimes i get that without even having the dream of falling. but it only happens when i try to make myself sleep by masturbating, cuz sometimes i just get knocked out when im done, but occasionally i don't fall asleep for another 3 hours or im like half sleeping, but im' still conscious the whole time, and yeah thats when i notice i get a shake.it weird, but kind of cool wen i think about it.
