21 month old has tremors while falling asleep/durring

My 21 month old daughter just reciently started getting tremors while she sleeps. It starts before she is asleep just as she gets sleepy and you can feel her body relaxing. She starts to randomly twitch all over(legs, arms, sholder, ect.). Most are mild though constant but every once and a while there is a big one that will scare her and wakes her up. I don't know if they last all night, but I held her for a 2 hour nap and she did it the entire time. I am really worried there is something serious going on does anyone have any information or advise. I have a appointment on Monday for her with her ped. should certain testing be demanded? She seems perfect other than this.

If your pediatrician is not sure if this is neurologic or sleep related, ask him about a referral to a sleep center that has  pediatric sleep specialist.
