Before starting this article, I would like to ask a simple question – Have you ever been rocked awake the sensation of falling, as well as drifted off to sleep? Well, ladies and gentlemen, if your answer is yes, then you are in the right place – because in this article we will answer that for you! But if your answer is no, then you should not be worried, because you are not uncommon! Why – well, that’s easy to answer! Because there are many people around the world who are experiencing the same thing! Just take a look at the following article and learn more about this!
How does this – well, these involuntary contractions of muscles in the arms, legs or the whole body are called hypnic pulls (or starts sleep), and are very common. You’ll be amazed when you say that up to 70% of people experience them occasionally, but do not know exactly what causes them. And many experts around the world have some theories. One of them is that they are a result of reduced natural marches of the nervous system that occurs as you are falling asleep: As your breathing and slow heart rate and low body temperature, your changes of muscle tone, and these contractions occur during this transition. Another theory suggests that as is drifting into sleep, the brain misinterprets the relaxation of muscles as a sign that really is falling and pointing his muscles to tense in order to protect it.
And, as mentioned earlier (at the beginning of this article) do not worry! Yes, pulls hypnic are nothing to worry about. If you wake up, just turn around and go back to sleep. And remember – intake high caffeine, strenuous nocturnal activities, emotional stress, or lack of sleep can increase the frequency and intensity of hypnic jolts. If you suspect that one of these factors can worsen their nocturnal muscle twitches, try cutting back on caffeine, use of relaxation techniques to help decompress, or practice better sleep hygiene.
Note: If you own, or have them pulls anxiety, prevent you getting enough sleep, you should consult your doctor. We really hope you find this article useful and do not forget to share with your friends and family. Thank you and have a good one.
