So How Common Are Myoclonus and Dystonia? — 12 Comments

  1. I learned something new today. Honestly, I viewed these two disorders as being part of a conglomeration of mytonia, but didn't know the specifics.

    I hope you and your new friend can help eachother cope with the day to day difficulties. It always helps to have someone to talk to, especially so when they have such a deep level of understanding.

  2. Frankly, I'm surprised that you even knew what Mytonia was, let alone Myoclonus or Dystonia. I didn't, until it was first suggested as a possible diagnosis.

    Do you have neurological problems in you family history, Cube?

  3. I didn't know anything about either of them.
    It's wonderful that the internet gives us the opportunity to contact people and form support groups as well as finding out information

    I found your blog on ExposeYourBlog! and I remembered to use the link!

  4. I didn't know anything about them, either, Anji…until I had it! Over time I've learned a lot about different Neurological Diseases as people find this blog and comment about their situation. I've tried to add some useful resource links on the sidebar, plus links to lots of well done disability blogs.

    And yes, we found each other on ExposeYourBlog. It's a great place to meet some very nice people and read lots of interesting blogs, too.

  5. Thank you for the information on these disorders, they are complex.

    You asked about the plants on my blog post and yes there were a variety of plants suitable for all conditions.

    Will think about a future blog on no dig gardens. They are a great concept for opening up new areas for food growing.

    Take care.

  6. Thanks for stopping by, Greenearth. That's another blogger I've met since I joined ExposeYourBlog.

    What's so frustrating with many of the neurological diseases is that there is no diagnostic test for them. So getting the right doctor is all important. Even then, as in my case, the diagnosis can change as symptoms become more prominent.

    I look forward to a no dig garden post!

  7. No history of neuro problems in my family, thank goodness, but I do have a degree in biology, a lifelong interest in medicine and science, and I was an office manager for an internist for 8 years.

    I am the go-to person for all things medical and/or science-related in my family.

  8. LOL! We have a lot in common. I have a major in Chemistry and a minor in General Science. I've always been the family nurse and to some extent at school for many years, too.

    Glad you don't have these diseases in your family.

  9. DB: I knew there was something about you that I liked right off the bat. You're a science geek just like me 😉

    I took lots of chem, but they weren't my favorites. If I must choose one, I did enjoy biochemistry the most. There is that biology bias in my make up that I won't apologize for. For me, chem and math classes were just something I had to accomplish for my biolody degree.

    Don't hate me for that 😉

  10. LOL! Cube, we ARE both geeks!!

    I felt the same way about the Biology classes I took!

    I have a sad memory of Biochemistry. We had done the lab where we used our spit with some strips of some kind of meat – kind of hazy on that part. Anyway, it was supposed to take several days. In the meantime, President Kennedy was assassinated, and we missed a lab class. When we got back our experiment was ruined. I have a vivid memory of how bad that lab stunk as we all cleaned our Erlenmeyer flasks!!

  11. I feel your pain about the failed experiment… but you are older than I am 😛

    Hey, if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

  12. It wasn't the failed experiment, but its association in my mind with the turmoil going on right after Kennedy was killed.

    Sometimes precipitates are the good part! LOL!
