My husband is 29 and Healthy. He just started having severe muscle spams and jerks. We live in mexico and right now are not able to travel back to the states for tests.
The Neurologist here thinks that he has Adult Myoclonic Epilepsy, he has ordered a electromyograph or something like that to test and be sure. Are there any other test i should be asking about to make sure he doesn't get the wrong diagnosis.
My husband has been under alot of stress lately with his work and hasn't been eating as good as he normally does.

thanks.

Also have your husband increase his doses of vitamin D and eat high antioxidant foods ie. blueberries, goji berries.Good luck.
