Angry 10 yr old son having involuntary leg spasms

My son is 10 yrs old and having involuntary leg spasms.. He describes his symptoms as his legs going numb and then the spasms looks like jerking in one leg but can be in the other leg as well..after the spasm he can't feel his legs for a few seconds..He says it feels like twisting when it is happening...After it happens he feels the need to move his legs or bend them to comfort himself... Normally one at a time. We have done an EEG that came out normal. I am waiting for MRI results. Dr's want to do an EEG Video monitoring next.. I also have a video recording of the spasms.. Please can you give me some information and/or guidance?


For the MRI the doctor put Jacksonian Seizures and Pseudo Seizure and Spasms ( he thinks this what it maybe)

Just got a call that MRI results are Normal....
What could this be?

pm for for video

Welcome to the NeuroTalk Support Groups.

I'm sorry that your son is having these problems.
Is it just the legs? How often is it happening?

As well as posting here, you might try for information over on our
Epilepsy Forum

Default 10 yr old son having involuntary leg spasms

Thanks.. right now they seem to be once a month but are starting to progress...They are happening more often and he is having more spasms each time. Yes it is only in his legs..but switches legs.. I'm not sure if I can post a video here but I do have a video of his spasms on youtube.
