134 Possible Causes for Myoclonic Jerking, Nocturnal Seizure, Syncope

  • Hypoglycemia

    In newborns, hypoglycemia can produce irritability, jitters, myoclonic jerks, cyanosis, respiratory distress, apneic episodes, sweating, hypothermia, somnolence, hypotonia[en.wikipedia.org] A 64 year-old African female was brought to the emergency room with a 1-month history of recurrent syncope, weight loss, and abdominal bloating.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] or convulsions loss of consciousness Kids who have nocturnal hypoglycemia may have bouts of crying, nightmares, or night sweats (with damp sheets and/or pajamas), and might[kidshealth.org]

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    People with syncope do not have the rhythmic contracting and then relaxing of the body's muscles.[stlukes-stl.com] In one half of these patients with poor outcomes, repeated minor epileptic status and nocturnal generalized tonic seizures persisted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The involvement of these structures might predispose to the typical seizure semiology of myoclonic jerks observed in MAE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

  • Focal Onset Impaired Awareness Seizure

    Myoclonic seizures A myoclonic seizure is a seizure where a single jerk or series of single jerks (very brief muscle jerks) occur.[epilepsy.org.au] This is the first report of a partial epileptic seizure precipitated by vasovagal syncope and the first example of an epileptic seizure induced by syncope in an adult.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most SUDEPs occur after one or more seizure(s) during sleep. Nocturnal seizures may go unrecognized.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] EPILEPSY IMITATORS OVERVIEW SYNCOPE AND ANOXIC SEIZURES Vasovagal syncope Reflex anoxic seizures Breath-holding attacks Hyperventilation syncope Compulsive valsalva Neurological[epilepsydiagnosis.org] 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]

  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy Type 6

    An electroencephalogram ( EEG) should not be performed in the case of probable syncope because of the possibility of a false-positive result.[nice.org.uk] Thirty out of 57 (53%) recently had nocturnal seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the affected children grow up, they develop myoclonic jerking, and their seizures may become refractory to treatment.

  • Nocturnal Myoclonus Syndrome

    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] The most important imitators of epileptic seizures are dizziness, vertigo, syncope, complicated migraine; and somewhat less frequently sleep disorders, transient cerebral[books.google.com] ., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p387) MESH News Feed Trends & Statistics View and search the latest papers on Nocturnal Myoclonus Syndrome.[rareomics.healx.io]
