Periodic limb movements are repetitive flexion movements of the toes, ankles, knees, and hips, sometimes the upper limbs too, lasting from 0.5 to 10 seconds that recur primarily in stage N1 and stage N2 of sleep with a periodicity ranging from 10 to 90 seconds. Though representing an almost obligate accompaniment of restless legs syndrome and frequently associated with various neurologic and physical diseases, they are also widely prevalent among the general population.

Epilepsy & Seizures
Seizure is defined as "a transient occurrence of signs and/or symptoms due to abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain." First seizure (single or multiple events within 24 hours) represents a frequent presentation of new-onset seizures, accounting for up to a third of such presentations. However, the majority of these patients will not go on to have recurrent seizures, ie, epilepsy.

Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy is a syndrome classically characterized by (1) slowly progressive muscle weakness and wasting in a scapulo-humeroperoneal distribution, (2) early contractures of the elbows, ankles, and posterior neck, and (3) dilated cardiomyopathy with conduction defects. It can be inherited in an X-lined or autosomal manner and result from mutations in several different genes. Variations in the classical phenotype can occur as a result of mutations in the causative genes.
