Specializes in Pediatrics
No: Myoclonus is a movement disorder not a seizure disorder, it can be physiologic; normal with no clinical significane, it can laso be related to other problems of the neurologic system. Keep requested follow up with the neurologist for continued monitoring overtime to determine if other symptoms will develope or if your child's movements are physiologic. Take care.
