Thanks for your query.

You may have to continue Aspirin.

At Least a 5 year seizure free period is need to decide whether to stop antiepileptic drugs.

But Aspirin is prescribed to prevent any brain infarct(Stroke or Cerebrovascular accident). So seizure free period will not imply for Aspirin.
You need to continue it because it is a prophylactic drug here.

Myoclonus(Involuntary jerky movements of the arm) may be normal if occurring occasionally.
But it is very frequent for you. This may be myotonic seizure.
Consult your neurologist.

Hope the answer helps you.
