    Essential Myoclonus

    Sometimes I feel I am the only one with this condition which I've had for 10 years since perimenopause. I suffer this weird anxious dizziness, and then the jerking of my head and left upper body starts. I've had several tests and workups (MRIs, EEGs etc.) and happily do not have epilepsy or MS or any other more serious issue. Nonetheless, at times of stress or schedule changes or sleep loss (holidays, anyone?) I feel like a basket case! I have a neurologist and have been taking 1.5mg clonazepam....

    Severe TMJ problems

    I have TMJ following orthodontic treatment. This has caused me problems such as strange sensations in the right side of my face, I cannot open opening my jaw straight without deviating to the side and have constant aching.

    Brain fog and muscle weakness

    Sorry I don't know if this belongs here or not... Anyways for the last few years I have been suffering from a range of problems. Mostly mental things like brain fog, confusion, inability to focus and think straight. Also a lot of muscle aches and weakness. I find it particularly hard to walk up and down stairs because my legs and lower back seem weak and wobbly and I have difficultly balancing/controlling movement. I also often drop things especially when feeling particularly weak. I am lethargic....

    I scream at the end of every seizure. Is this normal?

    I am an 18 year old female and had my first seizure 2 months ago. Since then I have had 5 seizures. Every time at the end of each seizure I always sit straight up and start screaming. My family describes the scream as if I'm terribly scared. Is this normal? I've been told that it is common for someone to scream at the beginning of a seizure but they have never heard of one at the end. I have done research online and have talked to my neurologists but no answers.

    Unable to track moving finger.

    Tonight, while playing with my wife and children, I noticed that my wife is unable to track a moving finger when moving in a circular motion. (To the extent that her ocular movement is 180 degrees in the opposite direction.) Even when I tell her the route I am to take with my finger, she is unable to follow, always going in the opposite direction. Yet when this obvious fact is put to her she denies it, claiming that she has successfully followed the finger. This began to freak her out a little so....
