Did you mean: EEG Later Shows Generalized Spikes or Polyspikes and Focal, Spikes, Lower and Upper Limbs Affected, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Myoclonic Jerking

    ., 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] Attacks may last several minutes to half an hour and more frequently affect the lower than upper limbs.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] These involuntary jerks are a symptom and not a disease. Myoclonic jerks are usually caused by some type of central nervous system ( brain and spinal cord ) disturbance.[healthblurbs.com]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    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] Attacks may last several minutes to half an hour and more frequently affect the lower than upper limbs.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] ., 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] All of these patients were contacted and asked specifically about myoclonic jerks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Myoclonic jerks or seizures Myoclonic jerks or seizures without impairment of consciousness are the cardinal symptoms of JME.[emedicine.medscape.com]

    The involvement of these structures might predispose to the typical seizure semiology of myoclonic jerks observed in MAE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] jerks, by using burst-locked EEG averaging where necessary.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical manifestations Myoclonic-astatic seizures are the defining symptoms (100%), manifesting with symmetrical myoclonic jerks immediately followed by loss of muscle tone[epilepsy.com]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Myoclonic-astatic seizures consist of symmetric myoclonic jerks followed by periods of absent muscle tone that can result in falls.[symptoma.com] This epilepsy is characterized by absence seizures concurrent with myoclonic jerks, typically occurring several times daily.[en.wikipedia.org] […] six cases (18%) with myoclonic jerks and tonic–clonic seizures.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy Type 6

    As the affected children grow up, they develop myoclonic jerking, and their seizures may become refractory to treatment. Synonym: severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Generalized ictal myoclonic jerks: The generalized ictal myoclonic jerks are always preceded by clear-cut spike-wave discharges.[icnapedia.org] Myoclonic seizures, often called myoclonic jerks, are common. Over time seizures occur more frequently without obvious triggers, and resistant to treatment.[secure.ssa.gov]

  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy Type 3

    Both patients had early infantile seizures characterized by fragmentary myoclonic jerks associated with burst-suppression pattern on electroencephalography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early Myoclonic Encephalopathy starts in the first 10 days of an infant’s life with erratic small jerks (i.e. myoclonic seizures).[seizuresinfant.com] […] epileptic encephalopathy which began between two days and ten weeks of life. at onset it is associated with: myoclonic jerks, partial fits and periodic paroxysmal EEG abnormalities[semanticscholar.org]

  • 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] 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] [[sturge_weber_center]] Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy People with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) have myoclonic seizures, characterized by small, rapid jerks of the arms,[hopkinsmedicine.org]
