WHAT IS THIS ? IT IS TO DO WITH THE BRAIN.
I am sorry, I am not sure I understand your brief question. If you are asking what "paroxysmal" means, with regard to a "brain disorder"--this is a description of a brain symptom that comes and goes. Examples would include seizures, headaches, and transient ischemic attacks or "mini-strokes" all of which come on suddenly and without warning, last a while, and then go away on their own. Without more information, this is the best answer I can provide.
