Almost every time I start to drift off into sleep, I experience a full body muscle spasm (sort of like a "jump").

Sometimes this happens when I (for example) am having a "dream" of tripping or falling off a ladder or sidewalk, but often it just happens (without the "dream", I mean).

Has anyone else experienced this or got an explaination for what it can mean? It's driving me crazy.
