I’m in the process of getting diagnosed with possible myoclonic epilepsy. Im curious if anyone else has the same symptoms? My legs for the last four weeks have been non stop jerking. My pcp diagnosed me with myoclonic jerks. But it’s getting worse and now I can’t stand without possibility of my legs buckling from the jerking. I started 250mg of keppra two weeks ago and it hasn’t done anything to help. I know I need an eeg but I’m just in the waiting and feeling stuck

      I was diagnosed with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy at 17. My symptoms show jerks everywhere. It includes my legs, they've never gotten to that extent. I take 300mg of Zonisamide for it

      I have myoclonic epilepsy. I'm so sorry about your experience. In my unprofessional opinion, yes it can be a symptom. What sucks is it can take time to get your ideal medication dosage or you may have to go on multiple ones. I hope you find out what is going on and what is right for you ASAP.
