Hi Heather, the jerking thing right before you fall asleep is actually normal. Now it is not normal if it occurs during the day while you are active. The sleep study if not done at a great hospital will only tell you if you lost oxygen at different points during the night. Most local sleep study docs do not even know how to diagnose narcolepsy. So dont be surprised if your doctor does not mention anything about the "jerks." Let us know how you do, Good luck, Sam
