What is the difference between myoclonic epilempsy and benign myoclonic epilempsy?

In brief: Not much

Benign Myoclonic epilepsy may be simply "twiching" of a muscle or group of muscles.
With increasing severity the twitching may spread or be prolonged. A neurologist should be consulted since treatment is available.
