Syncope with generalized myoclonus

This syncope starts with a stiff fall, followed by some minor multifocal myoclonus in the right hand and both feet. The second half of the syncope is characterized by synchronized muscle activation of both arms and legs (generalized myoclonus). (Contributed by Dr. Thomas Lempert.)
