Is Twitching at Night Dangerous?

Casual twitching at night is nothing to worry about, but regular muscle spasms may point to different health conditions. Experiencing twitching in your sleep on your luxury mattress can cause an increase in wakefulness and decline in sleep quality.

What Causes Twitching at Night?

The surprising part is, for many of us, that we don’t understand why we’re twitching while we’re sleeping, and that twitching can make it harder to sleep through the night.

 

Nutrient Deficiencies

Nutrition is essential for sleeping well, but even normal functions during the day. And if you’re twitching daytime and nighttime, you could be deficient in Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, or an imbalance of Calcium.

Anxiety and Stress

If you’re experiencing twitching only at night, however chances are there’s another cause. Twitching at nighttime, often referred to as hypnic jerks, may be caused by chronic stress and anxiety

 

Exercising Too Late

Exercise is essential  for our overall health and even our sleep; regular exercise helps regulate sleep wake cycles, our mood, and helps us live our healthiest lives possible. Avoid exercising right before bed, especially intense exercise, could at least worsen twitching while sleeping.

 

 

 

Get Assessed by a Sleep Specialist

 

If you’ve tried  everything above, you must get assessed by a sleep specialist for sleep disorders like restless leg syndrome. While there’s still not a lot we know about restless leg syndrome, some treatments include addressing a vitamin and iron deficiency; using muscle relaxants and sleep aids.
