I started experiencing the symptoms of Myoclonus 6 months ago.The Jerking started due to the contraction in my neck muscles.My head bend toward my left shoulder ,3 to 4 time in a minutes ,some time in a sequence and some time without sequence. I was so worried as it was so embarrassing.Everyone had eyes on me when I go in public places. My friend recommend me Dr. Padmaja Aradhya MD is the neurologist who helped me to over come Myclonus. Dr Padamja Aradhaya recommended exercise and massage beside medication. His doctor profile can be found here: http://www.alsforums.com/als-doctors/us/ny/massapequa/dr-padmaja-aradhya-md
