I was diagnosed with myoclonus 3 years ago, just a few months after I started dated my now husband. I have been on every medication for this under the moon, with some relief, but not any that get rid of it all together. I mainly have my condition at night. So I woke up this morning with a thought. My husband is away on a fishing trip, and I have not had any myoclonus since he left. Then I started thinking about days he was gone on business trips. I did not have myoclonus on those nights either. So I woke up thinking.my husband wears the same hair gel everyday, and I run my fingers through his hair every night before he goes to bed. Could I be having a allergic reaction to his gel? Can an Allergy cause Myoclonus? I have violent jerks all night long for hours at a time most nights going on 3 years now, and I am out of answers, and the doctors have no more tests to run.
