Is disjointed movement associated with MS? For a while I have noticed that if I turn over when sleeping, my head will do a side to side jerky movement. Recently when I wake up my arms, shoulder and head are jerky in movement. I can't find any information about this or anything similar online.
Tremors, the jerky movements you describe, do no occur during sleep but often emerge on awakening. When you role over you are transiently wakening up. A tremor is simply an oscillating movement and very common in MS.
