If you have spontaneous head, neck or jaw jerks, will you need general anesthesia for dental cleanings?

Difference between tics and spasms? Involuntary foot jerks, leg movements, finger jerks, & jaw jerks that stop occurring when busy. What are these?
Tics: If they stop when otherwise focused they are tics. Have you had a recent strep infection?

Broad ddx: There may be a bilateral cortical/subcortical brain disruption and MRI could help identify a potential cause based on the pattern of abnormalities. For ex: adult-onset leukodystrophy would show extensive demyelination of the white matter sparing the periventricular white matter vs MS vs Cerebral Autosomal-Dominant Arteriopathy, and work-up is different for each disease.
An 82 year old friend possibly has adult onset tics. Been getting botox shots in one eye area, now jaw is jerking. What kind of dr to see?
Non-stop facial tics in 5yr old. Ct scan/eeg normal. Constant eye rolling, head jerks & jaw movement. What could this be?
Very unusual: Nonstop is unusual. While people usually think of tourette syndrome, there are other tic disorders of childhood. There is also a postviral syndrome of opsoclonus-myoclonus, which can be seen in other conditions (neuroblastoma). Sounds like the child needs to see a pediatric neurologist.
3 yr old normal speech until tonight. When talking her jaw moves left and right not up and down and she had a slight head/neck jerk. Is this bad?
Hard to say: Video this without her noticing what you are doing. Then schedule a visit with her pediatrician to review the video. It's just too difficult of a question to guess here. Seeing the video will help your pediatrician decide. Is this a new behavior? Is it worse if you are looking? Is there a family history of seizure disorder or tics? Does it resolve with sleep?
May have inherited epilepsy--generalized seizures on awakening, teen onset-- partial seizures with weird jaw sensation, too--possible myoclonic jerk?
? JME?: Not sure of your precise question, but will attempt an analysis. You may possess juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, and if correct, your best drugs might be either Depakote or keppra, (levetiracetam) (lamictal may not work quite as well here. Yet, you may be sub-therapeutic based on your description). Also, you seem to have several complexities, and I wonder how all these inter-relate. Go over this with neurologist.
My 5 year old son has facial tics (eye rolling, head jerks, moving his jaw to the side) non-stop since june 2013. What could this be? I have a video.
Can TMJ cause neurological disorders? When my jaw pain, jaw swelling started. Is when my tremors started and jerks while trying to sleep started.
Ear & jaw pain, lazy feeling right side of face. Sore/tight shoulders & neck. Tingling in feet. Small head "jerks" when relaxing. Also suffer anxiety.
Multiple issues: Jaw and ear pain, and sore shoulder and neck might be due to TMJ dysfunction. This is often the result of bruxism (chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching), which is often caused by stress. See your dentist for a diagnosis and treatment. See your medical doctor for the feet tingling, especially if it is recurring or lasts longer than 7-10 days.
Head jerks: Head jerks are distinctly unusual during the daytime, more common at night. Head jerks represent abrupt muscle contractions in the neck which can be due to a variety of "myoclonic" disorders or seizures. Rarely someone has a bad tic that can produce this. This deserves further evaluation.
Possibly Tourette: Tourette syndrome is within the autistic spectrum. On the other hand it may be just a bad habit. If it is only that do not call any attention to it and it will stop. Even a "look" from others will keep it going. If other behavior symptoms develop, see a doctor.
Normal wear and tear: You are young but as we age normal wear and tear, injury etc. Can lead to above discribed symptom. Consult your primary physician first if it becomes worse/persists.
