Excessive fragmentary hypnic myoclonus, hypnic jerks, hypnagogic foot tremor, alternating leg muscle activation, and sleep-related cramps are less known sleep-related motor disorders (SRMDs).

Abstract

Excessive fragmentary hypnic myoclonus, hypnic jerks, hypnagogic foot tremor, alternating leg muscle activation, and sleep-related cramps are less known sleep-related motor disorders (SRMDs). These manifestations are frequently missed or misinterpreted polygraphic findings that can be frequently confused with the more frequent SRMDs. These symptoms can present as isolated motor symptoms but can be also the cause of otherwise cryptogenic insomnias and somnolence. Expanding the knowledge on these isolated symptoms and defining their polygraphic and clinical features are essential for their identification. However, clear cut-offs to discern between the isolated phenomenon and the disorder are still to be found.
