Is there such a thing as TOO MANY hypnic jerks?

I keep reading about how hypnic jerks are normal but is it possible to have too many of them or have them too often?

I seem to have a few every night. I sometimes only jerk in one leg or in my hands. Wake myself of course. Why does this happen so much?

Unknown, but it should be harmless unless it's disrupting your sleep or causing you worry.  In which case see a doc.
