S. Romero on Apr, 10, 2011:
Female. Motrin. Myclonic jerk. Can actually "hear" the "electrical" surge right before the jerk. Maybe about 3-5 in a row about 5 minutes apart. The whole series is always preceded by vertigo. Happened to me twice before I suspected it was the Motrin. Haven't taken Motrin since.
