Anyone have this problem trying to sleep ?

I recently have had either muscle spasms or your whole body jerks , just when i am almost falling asleep , it started just the arms or legs now it can be in my neck also. Sounds like not a big deal , but now i can't fall back to sleep.  I am trying a magnesium powder tonight. I even took melentonin , but after it wakes me up it is over. Any thoughts. I can do without sleep 1 or 2 nights , bur beyond that it is, becoming a major problem.

I take Magnesium every night before bed & sleep like a baby.  I have no trouble falling asleep & staying asleep (unless I need to go pottie)!  I highly recommend this liquid version.

I got a white noise machine from amazon.  Now I am not bothered by DH or Shadow's snoring!

 

Or the garbage truck when I can sleep in!!!")

I bought some calcium, magnesium and zinc and my husband says it helps him sleep.  

 

I got it way back when the COVID thing started and they were recommending zinc.

@MW in Iowa @This is called hypnic jerks or myoclonus.
