1 Answer:

Good evening Chrysilla Irianti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Myoclonic is the occurrence of a sudden uncontrolled movement that can occur at rest, during activity or when provoked by certain stimuli such as sensory, visual, auditory or emotional stimuli.


This movement itself can be grouped into several types, depending on the location of the source of the disorder, the description and distribution of the movements that occur, the time of occurrence and the causes of myoclonic movements.


Cortical myoclonic is one of the most common types of myoclonic and this type is obtained from the division based on the location of the source of the disorder, where in cortical myoclonic, the source of the abnormality is the cortex (outer layer) of the brain.


In cortical myoclonic abnormalities, patients generally will give symptoms in the form of uncontrolled movements of the face and the lower end of the upper limbs, because the majority of the function of the cortex is to regulate the body's muscle functions in these parts, and usually the duration of movement that occurs quite short.


As for the causes themselves, it is very diverse, from head injuries, epilepsy, strokes, infections, metabolic disorders to genetic defects that can cause symptoms of this disease and it is suspected that stimulation of the sensory system or emotions can trigger this disease.


I hope this helps.
