I've had Hypersomnia and RLS since '97-diagnosed, although I had sxs long before, however.

I've not been taking anything for the RLS in more than a year due to its long half-life.

I find that as I'm drifting off to sleep, I am having increasing issues with an electric shock, of sorts, in my upper body that startle me awake. Then, I have some difficulty getting back to sleep--like I'm wide awake.

Also, last year I took up golf (love it!). Last week I went to the driving range and hit a lg basket of balls. I was there approx an hour and not hitting strenuously by any means. Afterwards, my arms were shaking for an hour. Is this merely because I'm out of shape?

Can anyone enlighten me as to why I'm spazzing in the upper body so much?

Ask your doc to check your electrolytes like potassium and magnesium. I had a lot of weakness in my arms after carrying things and now have to take both supplements on a daily basis. If your electrolytes are low you can get spasms/weakness like that. Let us know if you find anything out!
