  • Nocturnal Myoclonus Syndrome

    Myoclonus may develop in response to infection, head or spinal cord injury, stroke, brain tumors, kidney or liver failure, lipid storage disease, chemical or drug poisoning[ninds.nih.gov] It has frequently been confused with, and should be clearly differentiated from, other normal jerking movements of sleep, such as partial myoclonic jerks and massive myoclonic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] failure, infection, head or spinal cord injury, or a metabolic condition.[medicalmarijuanainc.com]

  • Alpers Syndrome
