Hi, I'm new to this, my 9yr old son has started having abdominal jerks (Dr said Myoclonus) for going on 3mths., we've done the EEG and MRI's and all came back normal. Dr started him on clonidine at bedtime and he is in his 2nd week of taking this with no improvement that I can tell. However his does not bother him during sleep but seems to be more severe with stressful situations, excitement and nervousness! I feel like the Drs really don't give alot of thought to it but just want to write a prescription and keep the assembly line moving!!! They have not even done blood work to check for abnormal levels which I have read can also be a cause. We are planning to see Pediatric neurologist this week and I'm going to question that???
Good Luck to you,
Already had tests..(EEG,,,,EMG...& MRI)---all normal-
Both my neuros tell me that what I have....(My back....shoulder & neck muscles ONLY "act up"....when reclining..)...on my back..or on my stomach!
Drs....say....the HAVE seen it--not uncommon...(I never heard of it...
)---but that it's not serious---tho they have no idea WHY this happens! Just that it makes it really difficult for me...to sleep-!
Anyone else have anything...like this?
HOPING to hear from some others who have experienced this...or have a friend...who has? Thanks--Chris[/quote]
