This past week I've been getting bad convulsions where I'll get shaky and my whole upper body feels like it's electrocuted. This morning I woke up having them constantly. I fell pretty hard from it, dropped coffee all over me twice. I had 3 attacks. I get these sometimes but bad today and lately. A few years ago I had a really bad one that sent me to the ER from excessive caffeine and sleep deprivation, and I hallucinated and foamed at  the mouth. 

Does anyone have any clue what this could be?
