Sometimes when I wake up my body is vibrating. What causes that?

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question!

Do you have any health conditions that we may need to know about to better help you?

One basic guess at what you could be experiencing is known as Myoclonus. This can be due to muscle contraction or by muscle relaxation. You can read more about Myoclonus here: https://www.empowher.com/media/reference/myoclonus

Please see your doctor so that s/he can go over your history, symptoms, and do a physical exam to diagnose your condition.

Best Wishes,
