Why my grand baby is jumping in his sleep since he had his 1 year old shots?

Why my grand baby is jumping  in  his sleep since he had his 1 year old shots?

Hard to tell...: "jumping in his sleep" usually means a child moves around a lot in his sleep. That happens in many kids, but can happen more often if he had a rough day (got poked a few times). "since he had his 1 year old shots" doesn't say how long after the shots (1 day, 1 month, 1 year, etc.), so it is hard to tell if anything is related to getting poked. If related, maybe the legs are sore or he is dreaming. ...Read more

See answer: "Sleep Jerks" are a normal sudden muscle contraction(myoclonus) that can occur as you are falling asleep or waking up. Myoclonus at other times can be due to anxiety, exercise, medication side effects, metabolic disturbance and neurological disorders including seizure disorders. If there is no actual "jerk" it's possible you may be having Petit mal absence seizures. See your physician. ...Read more

Why does my husband keep twitching and jumping in his sleep?

Why does my husband keep twitching and jumping in his sleep?

Probably benign: Most people have had "sleep starts", a sudden jerk of the body, when falling asleep, or when aroused. This is a normal component of sleep. Repeated movements of the legs is periodic leg movements of sleep, a variation of restless legs syndrome. This can make the legs and feet twitch hundreds of times in the night; it can be easily treated by prescription medication. ...Read more

Ask your internist: I recommend seeing an internist first (for things like ulcers, esophageal reflux etc) since they can treat 90% of the problems. If the internist feels your symptoms are more than they can handle, then they can refer you to the best gastroenterologist in your area, since they have an inside knowledge of who is good. A good question to ask is, "Who would you refer yourself to, if you had my symptoms?" ...Read more
