Does anyone have rare myoclonic jerks/twitches or involuntary tics with migraine?

These aren't seizures, I just sometimes get the odd few myoclonic jerks snd involuntary sniffs/intakes of breath several times a day during migraines. Anyone else?

  1. Hi Kayeff,

    Thank you for your question. There could be a correlation, as many other condition seem to go hand in hand with migraine disease. If you haven't had a chance to speak with your doctor about this I would encourage you to do so. Hopefully he/she can provide you with more answers,

    In the meantime, I found this article that may be helpful; https://migraine.com/blog/movement-disorders-and-migraines/.

    Wishing you a low pain day,

    1. Yes. I do. Most often , I exerience nystygmus and movements in the arms and legs similar to hypnagogic movements excepting I am awake.

      1. That's exactly what i get, except not nystagmus even though i'm dizzy. Thanks for the reply, it's reassuring!
