Need sleep eval: You may need a sleep study with a seizure montage to see what the exact cause is. See a sleep specialist who is also a neurologist and will be best trained to rule out a night time seizure disorder and a myoclonic disorder. After a careful history, it is possible that the neurologist will opt for a 72 hour seizure study first. Best wishes.
