No problem. And thanks for getting back to me. So the movements don't stop at all, even for a few seconds while you hold your breath? In the pt I've seen, it didn't stop the pain, just the movements temporarily. Sorry you're not doing well.View Thread
Hello, I'm a neurologist and recently met a patient with this condition who noticed that when she holds her breath, the involuntary movements of her toes disappear. I would be grateful if anyone with the condition reading this, would try breath holding to see if the same thing happens. It may simply be an idiosyncratic feature in my pt's case but it would be very interesting to know if other people experience this. Thanks very much!View Thread
