Dear Noname
This could be side effects of a medication or it could be a hypnic jerk (muscle twitch when you just fall asleep) - this is found in people that is sleep deprived or have irregular/too little sleep. Another cause could be restless legs syndrome or periodic limb movement. Please discuss with your doctor as there are medications available that may help you with this. Normally this is not dangerous but just very irritating.
