It is time to discuss things that lead to myoclonus. On the whole, the signs of this problem may be noticed each time some muscles receive an abnormal electrical impulse. Most often, the signals of this type are sent by the cortex and nerves themselves. People have some nerves outside the nervous system. In case of their injury, this effect takes place. Numerous health conditions and diagnosis are the causes of regular myoclonus. Those are epilepsy (running out of breath), head traumas, kidney issues, toxic poisoning, different tumors, and genetic defects.
