I don't use WILD myself and I guess you are using this method. It is usually recommended to WILD after being asleep for 5-6 hours. Later dreams are longer plus you will enter REM faster.

I now remember some dreams I have in stage one sleep, they are half way between thoughts and dreams. I was in stage one sleep when I suddenly falling onto my bed from a height of about a foot, it felt very real and I have vague memories of this happening a few weeks ago but I somehow just forgot about it the first time it happened, it was mostly just the feeling you have when you are moving at a high speed and suddenly stop. Not scary or anything, just very weird. What happened?

I only do reality checks when I am thinking about lucid dreaming which is often in the real world but in dreams I don't think much about lucid dreams. How can I do it without having to think of lucid dreams first? I also may have a dream inside a dream if I think about lucid dreaming while dreaming. help! help! help!

Make it into a habit so it enters into your dreams too. But never do them on 'autopilot'

From the RC FAQ in the FAQs and Tutorials...

"When should I take my reality checks?
The main time you should take your reality checks is quite simply whenever you remember. However, there are a number of times where taking a reality check can prove to be very beneficial. So you could also try taking your reality checks:
- Every time you wake up
- Every time you’re talking or thinking about dreaming/lucid dreaming.
- Whenever you feel afraid
- Whenever you feel something is strange or out of place
- Whenever you see one of your dream signs
Remember that dreams could often reflect what is in waking life. This is something you can take advantage of. If you know there are habits or common events that can be found in your waking life, then it would be a good idea to associate reality checks with them. For example, if you always did an RC every time you see a cloud in your waking time, then there is a reasonable chance that you'll do that RC in your dreams if you also see a cloud then. Associations like this can be very helpful when you start taking reality checks. "

The muscle spasms you describe are not common. It vaguely sounds like PLMD (periodic limb movement disorder). Basically random muscle spasms in legs/arms during sleep. It can also happen while awake but it's less common. People with it also tend to experience leg cramps and/or sleep apnea. I have it, though not particularly bad.

When you start entering sleep paralysis, you twitch and vibrate as it’s your brain ‘testing’ to see if your awake. If you resist or respond to these actions, your brain will know you are awake. If you stay limb, you will enter sleep paralysis.

I see my dream signs almost every night and I always either fail to realize what they are or my mind comes up with some complex reason why I have no thumb. My mind invented a whole story about my brain being hooked up to an egg shaped space ship and me being under mind control for involuntary space exploration. Seems believable the way my brain does it. I always fail reality checks either from this or because I believe I am hallucinating, I look away than look back and all is normal.
