Travels in Hypnagogia

In the last year or so I've noticed that, as I am in the process of drifting off to sleep, I tend to get strange spasms and twitches, at the rate of one every thirty seconds or so. They aren't violent, but they are noticeable, and can emanate from more or less any part of my body. I'm fairly sure this never used to happen! What can it all mean? It doesn't happen when I'm wide awake, mind, but only in the borderlands of slumber.

My chronic Hypochondria Melodramatica leads me to wonder about degenerative diseases, and to remember that my aunt had Parkinson's, but I doubt it's anything to worry about, and I'd certainly rather twitch than have sleep paralysis, which used to be quite a problem. Still, I wonder if anyone else has similar symptoms?
