Myoclonic Seizures

Myoclonic seizures are brief, shock-like jerks of a muscle or a group of muscles. "Myo" means muscle and "clonus" means rapidly alternating contraction and relaxation—jerking or twitching—of a muscle. They're very brief jerks. Usually they don't last more than a second or two. There can be just one, but sometimes many will occur within a short time

As mentioned, some episodes of myoclonus are normal. Some myoclonic seizures occur in reflex epilepsies, triggered by flashing lights or other things in the environment. The seizures themselves are easy to identify. The symptoms usually can be diagnosed on the basis of the medical history and often QEEG patterns.
