10 yr old son having Involuntary Leg Spasms

My son is 10 yrs old and having involuntary leg spasms.. He describes his symptoms as his legs going numb and then the spasms looks like jerking in one leg but can be in the other leg as well..after the spasm he can't feel his legs for a few seconds..He says it feels like twisting when it is happening...After it happens he feels the need to move his legs or bend them to comfort himself... Normally one at a time. We have done an EEG that came out normal. I am waiting for MRI results. Dr's want to do an EEG Video monitoring next.. I also have a video recording of the spasms.. Please can you give me some information and/or guidance?

For the MRI the doctor put Jacksonian Seizures and Pseudo Seizure and Spasms ( he thinks this what it maybe)
