Legs jerking whilst asleep

My legs jerk rather violently every 15 to 18 seconds whilst I'm sleeping. (My husband has timed it over an extended period.) I'm unaware of it but I'm worried about the cause.

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

This is a normal occurence during REM sleep and you do not have any reason to worry about it. You can try Trepilene 10mg at night for a more peaceful evening/sleep.

Kind regards
