Worry worthy or normal?

I realize newborns have a startle reflex and they will sometimes cry in response. Ds-12wks-is starting to worry me though. The last couple days he has been having what I would call an over the top startle response. Everytime he is wide awake. There has been no loud or sudden sounds when it starts. His body goes completely stiff with arms/legs striaght out. His eyes widen and mouth opens. It will last 5-8ish seconds. Afterwards he SCREAMS and it can take up to 10mins to calm him. Is this normal or does it warrent a trip to the ped?
