Twelve familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) patients (6 with the I1811L mutation in CACNA1A, 3 with M731T mutation in ATP1A2, and 3 without known mutations) and 10 control subjects underwent single-fiber EMG. Mean jitter did not differ significantly between patients and control subjects or among patients. No blocking was found. The results suggest that neuromuscular function is normal in FHM.
