Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy:

A form of idiopathic epilepsy or recurrent seizures of unknown origin, with symptom onset typically occurring from approximately 12 to 16 years of age. The condition is characterized by sudden, involuntary, “shock-like” muscle jerks (myoclonus) that primarily occur during the morning or with stress, fatigue, or alcohol consumption. Patients may later develop generalized tonic-clonic seizures associated with loss of consciousness and rhythmic contraction and relaxation of all muscle groups.
