The onset of the disorder generally occurs in early adulthood. The tremor may start in one extremity and later spread to involve the whole voluntary muscular system. Usually, arms get more affected that legs. In some cases, the condition also occurs because of mitochondrial abnormalities.

Treatment of Dyssynergia Cerebellaris Myoclonica is symptomatic. Myoclonus and seizures may be treated with drugs like valproate.
