Advice needed on troubled baby sleep

About 2 weeks ago, he's now 13 weeks, my baby boy started jerking during his sleep in the night and repeatedly hitting himself hard in the face with his fists. He was waking up with bruises on his forehead. I've taken him to a Network chiropractor twice but it hasn't changed. Sometimes he wakes up crying as it hurts. He hit me once and it is quite hard.
Have you heard of this before and do you have any ideas how to stop him hurting himself. At the moment I stay awake holding his hand which is exhausting! I also put a soft glove on him to cushion the blow but it doesn't stop him.
Any suggestions to help him are welcome.

No advice I'm afraid as haven't experienced this, but a quick search online shows that it's actually a very common thing so don't worry

Yes he's fine now and apparently it's very common as you say.
