Severe Twitching When Sitting or Laying Down

Hey there. About a month or two ago I started twitching when ever I sit down or lay down. I have full body twitches which can be quite jarring. It happens about once every minute or two. It is very annoying especially when I am trying to fall asleep. It doesnt happen when I am up and moving around, only when I am still but I am worried it will start when I am driving or something when rapid jerky movement is bad. The only medication I take is Advair for my asthma. Also I think I have REM behavior disorder. I sleep walk a couple times a week always negative dreams. I have hurt myself a little a couple of times. Could twitching cause these sleepwalking events? I dont think I have the really bad things like MS but ill take any suggestions. Thanks!

Hi skorps,

I'm not a doctor but as far as I know, the MS tremors do not occur when you are still.
