Detailed Answer:
Hi xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

How was your day?

Hope this message finds you in good health.

I have gone through your query in detail and understand your concern.

well,these symptoms are quite common in concussion cases. but at our clinic,we have found that these symptoms are usually temporary and gradually go away in a few days.

jerking and pain after waking up is ok, but what concerns me is the wetting of bed.
it is significant and should not be neglected.
if the symptoms, especially, wetting of bed, happen again,then surely you must consult a doctor and get the necessary investigations done.

for the pain in legs, you can take analgesic tablets and hot fomentation.

You should eventually get back to normal in coming few days.Nothing to worry about.     

I hope your question has been answered.

Feel free to consult me anytime for follow-up queries.
Take care,God bless.

Wish you a healthy life : )
