Does anyone else have frequent experiences of Hypnic Jerks (also called hypnagogic jerk, sleep start, or night start)?
I ask because I found that there is a correlation for me now that's become pretty clear. In my martial arts training, I am learning more advanced kicks, such as jump back leg side kicks, spinning jump kicks, etc. Sometimes, I'll spend 30minutes to an hour working on one jump, trying to get it right.
I found that on nights when I was learning or practicing these advanced kicks, I'd experience 2-5 hypnic jerks at least. And specifically, instead of feeling like I am falling, which is what I normally feel during a hypnic jerk, I feel like I am trying to kick something instead.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
