Q: What causes shaking and jerking while sleeping?

I snore, have the shakes, and rapid leg jerking all at once when I'm sleeping, apparently. What could be the reason for this?

There is no way you can be diagnosed online.  You really need to see your doctor about your symptoms.  He/she may suggest you have a sleep study done.  Some possibilities include but are not limited to: sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome and/or periodic leg movement disorder.  But only an exam by your doctor and a sleep study can tell you for sure.
