I've been having unvoluntary movement and jerking of my arms, face, hands, shoulders and head. On rare occassion my legs will jerk too. I think it started about two years ago. In the beginning it happened so rarely that I thought it was just a fluke; but As time went on I started to notice it happening more often. And now it's every day. I was diagnosed with Lups (SLE) many years ago. A few years ago I was also diagnosed with Sjögren's Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I never told the doctors about the jerky movements because they were happening infrequently. But I will have to tell them on my next visit. None of my conditions symptoms include jerky involuntary movements, so what could it be? I really need to know.
