Leg "jumping" at night/while sleeping
For the last 2 nights, my boyfriend has woken me up because my leg is "jumping" (his word, not mine). I don't know, but I cant ever feel I'm doing it. I guess it was happening again tonight cause he woke up and was like "WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT AGAIN?!!?" so I said, "I DONT KNOW! Im not even awake!" :(

I laid in bed for a little while trying to sleep, but making sure my legs don't move. I laid on my side, I laid INDIAN STYLE (yeah, not comfy!) - everything. Finally I got my pillow and went to the couch.

I just want to know what this is and how I can finally stop it!

Background medical info about me incase it helps:
I have complex and simple partial seizures, but have never been effected in my legs before
I have strep throat and a virus and am currently on antibiotics and Nyquil
About a year ago I was diagnosed with polyneuropathy

But again, I've never experiences this before that we're aware of... he's a light sleeper too, so I'm pretty confidant any past "episodes" of this would have been noticed

Thanks for any help I may get on here!
