Brief Answer:
Neurologist assessment & EEG are must

Detailed Answer:
Dear friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Abnormal / Involuntary movements do not occur in sleep
If it does – it is some form of seizure (epilepsy)
One needs a thorough evaluation by a Neurologist (Specialist in diseases of the Nervous System) and EEG (Electro Encephalo Gram)

Take care
Good luck
