Paroxysmal Dyskinesia

Paroxysmal dyskinesias are a group of conditions characterized by episodes of abnormal movement that are self-limiting. The term paroxysmal dyskinesia is used to describe the clinical disease. Their infrequent occurrence within an individual and their abrupt nature has meant they appear to have historically been underdiagnosed. The catalyst for the increased awareness of these conditions has been the popularity of the smartphone. Observing these episodes in real time has allowed greater recognition of these conditions and in turn, we are gaining more of an insight into what they actually represent.
