Myoclonic Dystonia Syndrome Home Remedies

Myoclonic Dystonia Syndrome (MDS), or alcohol responsive myoclonia, is a disruptive movement disorder. Myoclonic Dystonia Syndrome results in both myoclonic movements -- jerking motions (typically of the upper body) due to quick, uncontrolled muscle contractions -- and dystonia--twisted or otherwise distorted postures. Symptomatic onset usually occurs in childhood.

Myoclonic Dystonia Syndrome is a genetic disorder that can be exacerbated by social anxiety. As such, sufferers can be locked into a self-reinforcing cycle that can make them more susceptible to depression, anxiety, OCD, alcoholism, personality disorders, and similar psychological conditions.
