Possible seizure: You can have a seizure while sleeping and your description of symptoms is consistent with a seizure and the confused " postictal' state after having one. It could also be a panic attack waking you up in the middle of the night but you need to see your provider and rule out seizures before assuming it is a panic attack. ...Read more

Night shaking: People can be reacting to a dream but not remember any content. But good idea to ask about possible sleep study and physical exam in case an organic cause. If doctors determine it's not organic concern, please consider my training No More Nightmares. People who are moving a lot in their sleep but remember no content often benefit from this training and all the big body movement stops! ...Read more
12 month old girl had 3-4 episodes of shaking in all her body, symmetrical, while asleep, lasted about 3-5 seconds. Otherwise healthy. Is that normal?
For almost a year, I´ve had slight (at most 1mm) tremor in my jaw. It does not affect my lifestyle, but is constant, even while sleeping. Any hints?
Stop caffeine: This may be benign essential tremor, which is annoying but not dangerous. Caffeine makes tremor worse. If you drink caffeine, try stopping. There are drugs which reduce tremor (e.g., beta blockers) but their side effects probably outweigh their benefit for someone as mildly afflicted as you. ...Read more
I'm having episodes, occasionally, while asleep that feel like I'm shaking/vibrating all over. It almost feels like a small seizure. What could this be?
Shaky feeling @night: Very hard to give accurate advice based on your brief description. However, seizures can happen any time of day, not just at night, so if they don't happen in the daytime too, it's probably not seizures. Best to go see your doctor and see if they can sort this out with more details and a good exam. You may need some special testing. Avoid alcohol. Get enough sleep (8 hrs ideally). Stay hydrated. ...Read more

My 5 year old son is a not often sleepwalker/sleeptalker but tonightbi noticed his legs shaking while asleep. What could this be?
May be normal...: May be normal to have many types of movements when falling asleep, during sleep, and when waking up. If a child is otherwise a happy, normal kid, then parents can just make a video of the movements to show the doctor. Parents can add details such as: when it happens, how long it lasts, what foods or meds taken, etc... During some episodes on video, wake him up while showing his response on video. ...Read more
Nocturnal tingles: More often than not it is innocuous unless it is chronic and if it substantially disrupts sleep. Pressure on nerves like on the ulnar crease or funny bone can cause tingling along the length of the arm from the elbow down. Carpal tunnel syndrome more often affects the palms. Nerve compression in the neck area can prompt shoulder, neck and arm tingling. May be "sleeping wrong" on arm or kinked neck. ...Read more

My body temp is higher than normal at night during sleep, one time in the 100s. I'm a healthy 30 y.O., no smoking or drinking and my BP is fine. Why?
Diurnal variation: Human body sets it's temperature levels so the lowest (normal) temperature is in am, & highest (normal) temperature is at night. Normals vary among individuals, but in a given individual the temperature setting is rather constant. So your normal is 100 at night and perhaps 98 in am. Someone else maybe 96 in am & 98 at bedtime.

Itchy/Prickly skin. Mostly upper body when laying and sometimes sitting. Worse in the evening before sleeping. Not during sleep. No rash.?
Emollients: The most common cause is environmental, so I would first suggest keeping baths and showers warm, not hot. Directly after bathing/showering apply a good moisturizer (Cetaphil, Cerave, Aveeno, (oatmeal) even Vaseline lightly) to these areas. You did not mention your age or the status of your general health, so start with the emollients first and give it 2 weeks or so. ...Read more
