    "Generalized rigidity and developmental neurologic reflexes are frequently present."

    Hi everyone, does anybody know what this means? I understand rigidity but not developmental neurologic reflexes.
    Is this the same thing as myclonic jerks?
    Hugs,
    Jo

    I wonder if anyhow is also having the problem of 'grinding teeth" with their AD family members ? I am being driven crazy as my husband grinds his teeth all day, never at night whilst he is asleep, so I can't put a mouth guard in all day. I have him on an antidepressant which may cause the side effect, however the neurologist disputes this, so I am at my wits end. I just wondered if anyone else has come across this problem ?

    Dear Louise.

    Lionel grinds his teeth constantly, to the extent that some of them are now in a very poor state. As Lionel is in a care home I only have this when I visit. (I seem to be immune these days, but agree it is so aggravating)

    As he resists all forms of dental hygiene, nothing can be done.

    He has suffered from myoclonic jerks for several years now.

    Are they linked, who knows?
