Hello Mela, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Movement during sleep like shock that you mean might be known as hypnic jerk. Hypnic jerkatau myoclonus, which is a condition when the body suddenly experiences strong contractions in a short time during sleep. As it progresses, the body experiences a brief and sudden twitch or spasm during sleep. Jolt occurs quickly, irregularly, and covers all or certain body parts. This is caused by several things, such as anxiety, stress, caffeine / alcohol consumption, activity before going to sleep, lack of sleep, etc.
Hypnic jerk or myoclonus is a natural phenomenon of the body. This condition is not a sign of disease in the body and does not cause any complications. However, if this causes you anxiety and disturbs your sleep, you should consult a doctor. At the moment what you can do is reduce the things that can increase your risk of experiencing a jerk like:
Reduce caffeine / alcohol consumption.
Manage stress well.
Try not to do heavy work at night.
Maintain a healthy and nutritious diet.
Consumption of enough water.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
