Clinically, irregular jerks of the shoulders and arms are manifestations of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). The onset age for this syndrome, which affects 4–6% of all epilepsies, is typically between 12 and 18 years of age. The condition usually starts with solitary jerks and then progresses to widespread tonic-clonic seizures (TCS). Valproate or primidone can effectively control JME. Dr. Sita Jayalakshmi, a Consultant Neurologist at KIMS Hospital, discusses the diagnosis and successful management of JME only on Medflix!
