    Hi Pete,

    You might be right about that. What I did notice was that the areas prone to this "jerking" were my trouble spots. It was like they were trying to kick the door down or something. I didn't really mind them except that they were so sudden it felt as though something was misfiring.

    I stopped worrying about it long ago. And then they have chilled out as well. I don't know if it was the Gaba or not.

    Bas, you say such nice things. Thank you.

      Interesting video about Huntingtons Corea.

      Brief, purposeless, sudden movements.

        Myoclonus can be physiological and is observed when someone is in a hypnogogic state; falling asleep,waking or being treated. The most common variant I deal with is PNES/NEAD which is essentially a management problem.

          Byron Selorme,
          The video... I see nothing, only a black board.
          What is going on?

                I get those ideomotor jerks too; mine are pretty regular (sometimes like shaking head no) They always seem to end well, but for someone looking in, it must look lie I'm having a fit. Actually my wife accused me of that once.

                Do you find that you get into positions and just sort of hang out there for a bit?

                  That happens sometimes. But usually at the end of a ...spasm.. With the muscle staying "on" if you will. Often it is in cervical extension.
                  Who knows. The floor is pretty safe.

                    You both know what you are doing and I hesitate to advise, but I'm going to anyway. Myoclonic jerking once established is difficult to down modulate. Keep it vermiform and enjoy!

                      I would never miss an opportunity to admit I don't know what I am doing. Thanks for that info Jo. I have to read up on vermiform now
