819 Possible Causes for Myoclonic Jerking, Onset of Disease between 25 and 40 Years of Age, Series of Focal Spikes

  • 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] Celiac disease (or gluten sensitive enteropathy): The age of onset may vary between 40 - 80 years and the mean duration of ataxia between 3 to 25 years.[neuroweb.us] ., 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]

  • Epilepsy

    So the jerks were considered as cortical origin and generalized myoclonic seizure was confirmed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , like EPC, presented with myoclonic jerks. [7] This thought process was later proven inconclusive after considering subsequent literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, it should not dissuade clinicians from the diagnosis of myoclonic epilepsy with normal scalp EEG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

    On the contrary, he found that spike-wave complexes appeared in bursts, in isolated form or even focal, with a gradual tendency to the normalization of EEG basic rhythms [[omicsonline.org] 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]

    myoclonic jerks of cortical origin.[mendelian.co] Generalized myoclonic-tonic-clonic seizures begin with a few myoclonic jerks followed by tonic-clonic activity.[medlink.com] jerks, or both. 4 EGTCSA is a diagnosis currently used by many groups that emphasize specific management issues including the importance of precipitating factors and the[mhmedical.com]

  • 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]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    A total of 33 patients (47%) also had myoclonic jerks with a mean age at onset of 16 years.[medlink.com] Myoclonic jerks are infrequent, mild and of random distribution.[pennsw.com.au] jerks (20%).[orpha.net]

  • West Syndrome

    Initially, he had refractory convulsions of focal, generalised, and myoclonic jerks, not responding to multiple anticonvulsants. He also had choreoathetoid movements.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient presented with segmental myoclonic jerks at the age of 6 weeks, and infantile spasms at the age of 3.5 months. Her seizures were resistant to treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] jerks of the upper limbs, mainly on awakening, synchronous with the generalized discharges of 4 Hz spike-wave occurring at 12 years of age and by co-occurrence of a later[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy Type 6

    Focal Seizures In Korff's and Norli's series of 69 infants, 6 focal seizures had various semiologies: tonic-clonic with secondary generalization (3); clonic (11); tonic (11[psiquiatriainfantil.com.br] 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]
