Sleep myoclonus: What you are experiencing is sleep myoclonus, a common occurrence when falling asleep. It tends to subside when you have actually fallen asleep. It is not an indication of pathology.

If the jumping is severe enough to interfere with your falling sleep then you would need some medication to help

Jump/jerk in sleep: If it is only in sleep onset it is normal but more than that needs evaluation .... See a sleep doc. Multiple conditions can do this some of them need treatment.
