2 year old waking up from shaking

My son has had this since he was 3 months old. He is sleeping and will wake up from shaking (only his arms). Sometimes, his body seems to vibrate. It only lasts for about 10 seconds, but it is a frightening 10 seconds.
We have taken him to the doctor, and more doctors, only to be told nothing is wrong with him. He had an EEG that came out completely normal and even took him off of milk products. I dont want to be paranoid, but I need answers. I thought he might have nocturnal myoclonus, but am finding out that it is only the legs that shake. It is my sons upper body. Please respond, does anyone know what this is, is this familiar to you?
