Exclamation Help - Sudden Myoclonus Worsening - Full Body

Ok, folks, I'm striking out on Google here. My doctor referred me to neurologist, but so far the earliest appointment I can get is 40 days away and my symptoms are getting worse quickly.

Background: Male, late 30s, hypothyroid 15 yrs, history of depression and ADD.

Problem: For last several years, I've had myoclonus (involuntary kicking, twitching, some arm movement as well) when drifting of to sleep. Switched from SSRI to Welbutrin, no improvement. PCP and shrink said live with it so I did. Eventually I would notice it in the evenings when watching TV in the recliner, but figured it was just because I was tired.

Fast forward to the last few weeks and these symptoms are now all day whenever I'm sitting or, as of yesterday, just standing still. My legs smack together on their own, my arm flies back, my shoulders suddenly shrug. Last couple days, I'm noticing I'll go to grab something and end up throwing it or dropping it if it's fairly light.

Does anybody know what this is? I'm getting worried it's something terrible.

I have started taking calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and B12 in case of malabsorption, but no change.
