Myoclonic Jerks Return


In September 2012, Vera had fits presenting in the form of Myoclonic jerks for the first time. They went away after she was started on Epilim.

Less than 2 years later, they are back again.

Again she stares at nothing with a stunned look. This time, the pattern is non-stop clapping interspersed with the jerks. (0:05 and 0:33) She goes into 'The Mode' once she is left alone.

We should have increased her Epilim dosage as she grew but we didn't. Lesson learnt.

Now let's hope that we can move up quickly to a dosage that will put this under control and I can have Vera back to her normal self.
