    When your muscles jerk in the jaw, shoulder or legs while you are falling asleep is that restless leg?


    I Have FMS, so not now to chronic insomnia and unrestorative sleep.  But lately far more day time drowsiness, to the point of falling asleep at work.  Then when I try to sleep, or nap, these muscle jerks jolt me awake.  If I take a sleeping pill, apparently I still kick and twitch anyway.  I also making a lot of noises, but not talking.  I'm dying to get a good nights sleep at this point.
