Has anyone found treatment for hypnic jerks?

I started having these "hypnic jerks" about 3 months ago where everytime I drift off to sleep, my body wakes me with a jolt. Sometimes it is my whole body, or it may be just an arm or a finger that move and sometimes it is just this weird sensation in my head. It prevents me from falling asleep and happens over and over all night. I usually am able to fall asleep eventually, but then wake up like an hour later. I have heard of people trying Klonopin, but I am so hesitant to take a benzo. I have tried remeron, trazodone, and various sleeping medications with minimal results. I also don't want to be reliant on a sleeping med forever. Has anyone found alternative treatment for this?? I am so desperate for sleep. Please, if anyone has any experience with this let me know. Thanks
