I have exaclty the same problem. I have turned of calendar notifications in notification center to see if that is the issue for me.
I will also add that I can not select anythign in the notification pull down. I have to reset my iPad to remedy the problem.

I had the same problem, and tried turning off syncing with my Microsoft exchange calendar. The jitteriness disappeared, and when I turned the synci back on, everything was still calm. So hope this fixes it for you.

Tried freebie's advise and it worked once I turned off the exchange synce for several minutes.

Confirmed freebie's solution works. Thanks for the reply!

So that's Settings-> Mail,Contacts,Caldndars->Click your Exchange account->switch Calendars to OFF and then exit back to Springboard. Then re-enable it by doing the same and switching to ON.
Semi-miracously the shaking, flashing, jittering of the Notifications Pull Down on my iPhone 4S is now gone. Thanks guys.

I encountered this issue for the first time today. After reading a different discussion (found here), I realized the only time the 'jittery" notifications happens is when I have a meeting request I haven't responded to.

The solution provided by "louisfromchristiansburg" was a simpler way of resolving the issue for me until a fix is released by Apple. Just open your Calendar and tap the Invitations button in the bottom right. Then review the invitations listed and Accept/Maybe/Decline as appropriate.

That isn't a valid solution for me as I get at least 5 invites a day. I'd be doing this all the time. The switch it to off and then back on solution was a one and done kind of deal.

This particular situation (jittery calendar invites) must be confined to a certain subset of users. I sync with Exchange 2010 and have not experienced the jittery notifications, either on the lockscreen or with a swipe down on the notification center. I just sent a test invite from my wife's Exchange account and, again, did not see the jittery notification. Also, I've been running iOS 5 on both my iPad and iPhone 4 since July (beta) and did not experience any issues.

Yes, I totally agree with this observation, there's a bunch of us at my work who updated to the new 4s models just over a week ago, all syncing over 3G with Exchange 2007, I had the battery drain/jittery calendar notifications issue however, the others don't.
As recommended above, disabling and re-enabling my exchange calendar syncing seems to have cleared the issue....for now.
Settings-> Mail,Contacts,Caldndars->Click your Exchange account->switch Calendars to OFF and then exit back to Springboard. Then re-enable it by doing the same and switching to ON
I'm now wondering whether it was some glitch when I was setting up the new device, we use a product called MobileIron to manage our fleet of devices, it handles pushing the Exchange capability/config out to new/replaced devices and installing it...with a couple of prompts. Something may have gone awry there, perhaps corrupt calendar data? Anyhoo, turning Exchange calendar on/off as per above seems to flush the old data out and voila!
Good luck all.
