How do you know if you have myoclonus?


My leg jerk and almost resembling a kick but it doesn't happen all the time, but does happen every day.It's involuntary and painful.I have had epilepsy since I was 11 and don't think there is a connection there because I've had grand mal and petit mal seizures and this is nothing like them.I"ve even tried to sit on my leg while in the car and almost threw myself to the driver just by the jerking motion.I will turn over during the night and get a horrible case of the hiccups. I never get the hiccups and now they wake me from a dead sleep and I may have them for 30 to 40 minutes. I also have Restless Leg Syndrome on Requip and Skelaxin for it, but it does nothing for the jerking once it starts. Other meds are Lamictal, topomax, prozac, tricor, zetia, vicoden. I have RA, RLS, Hidradenitis Suppurativa,COPD,asthma,epilepsy.

I have read about this syndrome on the link you provided.

Can myoclonus develop into a disease of some sort?


My neurologist recently diagnosed me with Myoclonus. I was wondering if it could become any wores, like can it develop into parkinsons disease or any other disease?
----------

Did you doctor specify the type of Myoclonus you have? You did not mention your age nor the symptoms you have.

You would do well to register at We Move.org in order to take part in the discussion groups.

To read the pertinent info about myoclonus simply go to the link above and move to the next page by clicking NEXT.

What you will find is that while there are parkinsonian symptoms which may be exhibited with myoclonus, the possibility of developing Parkinson's disease is slim. Myoclonus can appear as a symptom of PD but there does not appear to be a reverse development unless the initial diagnosis is incorrect.

Myoclonus appears as a symptom of conditions such as epilepsy, spinal injury, MS, PD, brain tumors, liver or kidney failure and nerve damage. More often it is a central nervous system condition. The causes are varied for myoclonus and can range from medication interaction, drug abuse, anesthesia.

Treatable, often with anti-epileptics, myoclonus is often non-levadopa responsive. It is considered non-life threatening but it can make a serious impact upon quality of life.

You should probably get more information from your neurologist on the way he has diagnosed your condition and the classification he has applied to yours.

It's a terrible feeling to have a condition such as this because there is a "what's next?" feeling which pervades everything.
