Sleep Vibrations: Here's an interesting article===>http://www.Lucidology.Com/blog/101/obe-vibrations/. When one falls asleep, the body actually becomes paralyzed and there is a general neural release which can be perceived as rushing water, vibrations, and other "strange" phenomena. Many people experience this, and there ar no known adverse health effects if you are otherwise alert and don't have sleep apnea.

Restless legs: This sounds like restless leg syndrome, which can cause the legs, and often other parts of the body, to shake upon falling asleep at night. There are several medications that your doctor has to choose from for this.
