  • Movement Disorders

    Hello all! I did a quick search and couldn't find anyone asking about this topic.
    I'd like to inquire if any one else here is afflicted with a neurological movement disorder. I'd love to talk to others that have this sort of disorder as well as IC/PBD.

    Wikipedia's list of movement disorders:
    • Akathisia (inability to sit still)
    • Akinesia (lack of movement)
    • Associated Movements (Mirror Movements or Homolateral Synkinesis)
    • Athetosis (contorted torsion or twisting)
    • Ataxia (gross lack of coordination of muscle movements)
    • Ballismus (violent involuntary rapid and irregular movements)
    • Hemiballismus (affecting only one side of the body)
    • Bradykinesia (slow movement)
    • Cerebral palsy
    • Chorea (rapid, involuntary movement)
    • Sydenham's chorea
    • Rheumatic chorea
    • Huntington's disease
    • Dystonia (sustained torsion)
    • Dystonia muscularum
    • Blepharospasm
    • Writer's cramp
    • Spasmodic torticollis (twisting of head and neck)
    • Dopamine-responsive dystonia (hereditary progressive dystonia with diurnal fluctuation or Segawa's disease)
    • Geniospasm (episodic involuntary up and down movements of the chin and lower lip)
    • Myoclonus (brief, involuntary twitching of a muscle or a group of muscles)
    • Metabolic General Unwellness Movement Syndrome (MGUMS)
    • Parkinson's disease
    • Restless Legs Syndrome RLS (WittMaack-Ekboms disease)
    • Spasms (contractions)
    • Stereotypic movement disorder
    • Stereotypy (repetition)
    • Tardive dyskinesia
    • Tic disorders (involuntary, compulsive, repetitive, stereotyped)
    • Tourette's syndrome
    • Tremor (oscillations)
    • Rest tremor (4-8 Hz)
    • Postural tremor
    • Kinetic tremor
    • Essential tremor (6-8 Hz variable amplitude)
    • Cerebellar tremor (6-8 Hz variable amplitude)
    • Parkinsonian tremors (4-8 Hz variable amplitude)
    • Physiological tremor (10-12 Hz low amplitude)
    • Wilson's disease
