I'm wondering if I can get the right diagnosis

I had an accident last 06Sep03 in the Philippines which left me deaf and disabled, plus I suffer from what my first neurologist then termed it as Myoclonus from the brain trauma. My symptoms are:
I couldn't control my right hand
I couldn't control the tips of my fingers of my left hand (though I could control it)
I couldn't control my right toes
I'm sleep-deprived. => This is my primary concern now. I've read that it's symptom, not age, related. Most likely it has something to do with my accident. My current sleep now only averages 3 hours. I sleep at 8, then I wake up at 11. My target now is to normalize my sleep, for even if my eyes are really sore, I still couldn't fall asleep.
I feel if I'm prescribed the right muscle-disorder drug, I would regain control of my hands, and get adequate sleep.
Maybe a web can come up with a site where you can enumerate the symptoms, and the site can provide possible diagnoses, you print them out, and present it to your doctor.
