Hello! I have mynoclonic jerks, my neuro (who sucks by the way) said it is mynoclonic sleep. Anyone know what this is all about? My body jerks everywhere when resting (not just going to sleep). It seems to be getting worse. I might have a "jump" in my back, then my leg, then my arm and then my fingers or toes. It lasts for about 20 minutes when it happens. BTW- the neuro quickly glanced through my MRI pics (only the top view ones) and said there was nothing of concern on the MRI. I asked if it could be in my spine and he said no. But, when having the MRI my body starting doing these jerk things and that is why he said mynoclonic sleep. Like I said, he is one of those docs that what to say "it's all in your head" or "you have some woman disease". Arrggg.... but any ideas on what this mynoclonic thing means? Thanks again!

After reading a lot of the posts that people put up I'm wondering if writing and typing difficulties are a common symptom of MS? The reason I ask is that I do medical transcription and have definately noticed that I mis-hit keys a lot. I always blamed it on dyslexia that I was never diagnosed with, but now y'all have made me wonder.
Has anyone experienced trigiminal neuragia? I have been plagued with it for 1 1/2 years on and off. Right now it's really bad. I was diagnosed with MS 4 1/2 years ago (relapsing-remitting). The symptoms from this override the MS symptom which seem to be minimal at this time.
