Is this clonus?

Postby jolt2 on February 19th, 2008, 2:20 am

If I bend my foot towards upward and slowly let it go back towards the ground and hold my foot before it touches the ground, it will shake. The shake is not really visible but if you touch it, it feels like something is moving inside my foot. If I put my foot back to the ground it stops. Is this what clonus is, or is this something else?

According to wikipedia Clonus (from the Greek for "violent, confused motion") is a series of involuntary muscular contractions due to sudden stretching of the muscle.

This sounds like what I have. Could it possibly be a postural tremor?

Thanks for your help.
