Rule out epilepsy: Probably not epilepsy but is important to see your primary care physician first and if necessary a Neurologist.

Twitching/jerking: Not all twitching and jerking is epilepsy. it may not be epilepsy but it's still a neurological problem. if your negat diagnosis of epilepsy was made by a neurologist, go back & ask, "If it isn't epilepsy, then what is it? Just give me a name to put on it." Then learn everything you can about what (s)he tells you it is. Caution: A lot of things in medicine don't have a neat, tidy explanation.
