The Verdict is in...

We are home and we are SOOOO glad to be here. Ty did very well last night and had many "episodes." They were happy with his cooperation that they all came him smiling. They also were smiling because his EEG looks so good. He has no underlying seizures and there is no abnormal acticvity. BUT the episodes do have a name.

The Diagnosis....... Benign Sleep Myoclonus.

What is it... Doesn't hurt, done during sleep, jerking. Most people have it but most outgrow it. Ty hasn't and still does it. His dad does to!!!

The plan: Keep doing what we are doing. Hope he outgrows it and if not learn to deal with it...

Overall... great productive information and Ty is once again a Miracle if ever there was on!!

Hey Nancy... yet another thing we have in common. Paige was diagnosed with benign myoclonus of drowsiness (sleep) when she was about 10 month old. As she got older her twitches got stronger. So, be prepared. lol

My hubby has it too. My Tyler is 21 months old and he already twitches.
