The human body has some strange ways of telling us when things are up. For instance, have you ever noticed yourself twitching just before falling asleep? Well, here is what it means.
You have finally gotten to that comfortable spot in your bed, the blankets are just right, the same as the pillows, and you are just about to drift off. All so softly until the body twitches and scares the piss out of you, it ruins your sleep, and drives your partner crazy. Sounds familiar? Here is what it means.
Scientists called this phenomenon the hypnic twitch. While it was described differently by numerous people, common descriptions include the feeling of falling. Supposing that you experience this phenomenon it is recommended that you do not consume any caffeine before going to bed. It is also a common side effect of drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall. It’s most common in people that are extremely exhausted and finally make it to their bed. It’s when you fall asleep too fast and the brain can’t keep up with the phases of sleeping.
