Vibrations after waking up from sleep

I've been having a strange occurance happening.  Sometimes after waking I feel a vibration throughout my body.  I live in California and I keep thinking we are having an earthquake.    I do have Sjogrens Syndrome with autonomic neuropathy.  Could this be caused by that?   I also have Celicac disease and I'm on a gluten free diet.

That's very interesting.  I just posted a similar question, am also a celiac and on a gluten free diet.  Maybe connected?

Great minds think alike!   I mentioned the celiac part because I saw an older post that was similiar and the doctor suggested that the person may have a gluten intolerance.  So,  I wanted to mention that to rule it out.  
Of all my many medical problems with Sjogrens this is low on my list but was just curious.   I keep yelling out to my partner that "we're having an earthquake".

interesting.  I often get a zinging sensation from my step all the way up into m y torso and down my arms.  It seems like L'hermite sign, but I don't know why I have it.  
I just had a positive antibody test for celiac, and have a biopsy scheduled next month.
I also had a positive anti-rho test, without sx of Sjogren's.... yet
What the heck!!

This could be related to narcolepsy.  Essentially narcolepsy is a defect of the control of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep so that it may occur when you are half-awake.  I have seen strange fuzzy-focus scenes.  I am self-diagnosed with Celiac 3 months ago but doing immensely better on a gluten free diet.  Unfortunately my sleep issues are worse: no more cramping, but more strange awakenings, sleep paralysis, and nonrestorative sleep.  All of this suggests that I may have narcolepsy.  Next month, I get a sleep study, and I may get a real diagnosis.
