Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
At this point the best thing for your son to do would be to have a complete medical evaluation followed by a sleep study.
This is the best way to figure out what is going on and what might be causing his jerks and problems with a good nights rest.
Does this make sense to you?

Yes. That would be very possible.
He might want to go to a Major University Teaching Hospital for this evaluation.
At an institution like that he could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.

In the USA? It just takes a phone call to make an appointment....
In the UK? Probably need to get a referral from your primary care MD and then wait......
But I'm sure it can be done...
I wish your son the very best. As a father of five I can understand what you are going through.

he might have to travel to the USA for treatment/evaluation or go back to the UK and be re-registered.
Paying out of pocket would be a (very expensive) option but would be possible.
Is there any indigent/medical hardship care available in Spain?
I'd check all sources of Social Services that might be willing to help your son

I do not know about places in the UK but in the USA I would suggest he consult at The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota:
