I'm afraid because when I go to sleep I have uncontrollable jerking motions, what kind of doctor should I visit?

You should either see an ENT with a skill-set in sleep medicine or a sleep medicine doctor. The jerking motions can represent many things such as restless leg syndrome, leg cramps, or even obstructive sleep apnea.
You may need a sleep study to help make the diagnosis.

One possibility is a condition called restless leg syndrome.
An overnight sleep test can determine this and/or other conditions that may be at play.
