  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Most nocturnal seizures occur in stage 1 and stage 2 , which are moments of lighter sleep. Nocturnal seizures can also occur upon waking.[healthline.com] By the jerk-locked averaging method, a positive spike time-locked to the myoclonic jerk was demonstrated in four patients before 15-20 msec of myoclonic jerk.[ci.nii.ac.jp] ., adj myoclon ic. A single myoclonic arm or leg jerk is normal when the person is falling asleep. Myoclonic jerks are severe with grand mal seizures.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    The myoclonic jerks occur rarely in EMA. They are usually mild and are freqently restricted to the upper extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are repeated seizures (nocturnal seizures), especially in the waking hours of the morning, which can sometimes be due to awakening earlier than usual or due to insufficient[medindia.net] It is also a common cause of noncompliance to AED therapy, which leads to poor seizure control.[annalsofian.org]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

  • Unverricht-Lundborg Syndrome

    Tonic–clonic seizures occurred in seven cases; these were often nocturnal and did not have an early morning peak.[academic.oup.com] Treatment with different neuroleptics led to an increase of the myoclonic jerks. Sleep deprivation also led to an increase in myoclonic jerks.[frontiersin.org] […] symmetric muscle twitches, which often were painful, caused anxiety, and reminded Lundborg of clonic, tonic-clonic, or tetanic seizures ( Puschmann 2009 ).[medlink.com]

  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

    In such cases, massive myoclonic jerks, myoclonic-atonic attacks, as well as atonic seizures may occur, though much less frequent and severe than the other manifestations.[epilepsyontario.org] Tonic; atonic and atypical absences Myoclonic, atonic and myoclonic-atonic Tonic seizures Common and characteristic, diurnal and nocturnal Probably exclusion criterion (nocturnal[icnapedia.org] Lennox and Davis first correlated the slow spike-and-wave EEG pattern with a distinctive group of clinical manifestations including specific seizure types (myoclonic jerks[medlink.com]
