I've noticed with my SA I have ticks that are seizure-like, where the left side of my body (or right sometimes) will jerk involuntarily.

Typically its triggered by a social situation although it has woken me up at night in the distant past.

Anyone else experience this?

Turns out the convulsions i've been having are almost normal.

They are called "myoclonic jerks".

Here's a useful quote from wiki, "Although some cases of myoclonus are caused by an injury to the peripheral nerves, most myoclonus is caused by a disturbance of the central nervous system. Studies suggest that several locations in the brain are involved in myoclonus. One such location, for example, is in the brainstem close to structures that are responsible for the startle response, an automatic reaction to an unexpected stimulus involving rapid muscle contraction."

I think in need gaba supplementation.
