Sleep Twitches: Possible diagnoses include: 1. Restless legs syndrome: leg discomfort brought on by rest and temporarily relieved by movement. 2. Periodic limb movement disorder: repetitive jerking of legs during sleep. 3. Hypnic jerk (normal): muscle twitch occurring at sleep onset - sometimes associated with sensation of falling. Consult with a local sleep medicine specialist for further information.

Not exactly.: Beta-blockers are helpful for a variety of medical disorders, but like many medications are not entirely benign. Side effects include daytime fatigue and sleep disruption. What you have described is not a clear indication for beta blocker therapy - risk may outweigh benefit. Please consult with a local sleep specialist for further information.
