What is paroxysmal exertion induced dyskinesia?

Paroxysmal exertion-induced dyskinesia, a relatively rare form of paroxysmal dyskinesia has been described as episodes that are induced by prolonged exertion. Paroxysmal dyskinesia is sudden, transient attacks of abnormal movements involving muscle groups of the arms, legs, trunk, face, and/or neck.
