Electrical Shocks

A MyFibroTeam Member

Hi! Wondering if anyone experiences electrical shocks throughout their body? I get them so badly my body actually moves on it's own. If I get one in bed, my whole body raises off the bed. Once, while drinking a glass of water I got a shock and hit the glass into my teeth. No broken teeth...that time and I hate drinking out of plastic! :)

I went to a MAPS clinic, just once...and when I told the PA about the above, using the bed as an example, I was told it was probably static electricity in my clothes and bed. NOT!!!

Jokey Jokester: A guy goes to the psychiatrist wearing shorts made of clear plastic wrap.
The psychiatrist says, "Well, I can clearly see you're nuts."

Yes, I describe them like a surge of electricity that just goes through my body.

I get the shocks as well and nobody knows why, when I would go to the e. R and they put medicine in the IV, as soon as they did that my entire body felt like I was being electrocuted , it only lasts a few seconds (thank God) I'm guessing it has to do with nerves 🤔 not entirely sure though. Plus , sometimes I get the zaps in my head.

Yes, I get the feeling a bee or spider has bitten me. Then shocks like a Tasker, I also get itching spells and deep muscle pains in my shoulders, arms, and neck that gives me headaches. Lyrica helps but someone said it causes you to feel like something is flowing thru your muscles and I accidentally touch the wrong mouse keys because of it. Lyrica also makes u gain weight. But Lyrica takes the pain and bite like symptoms away. I take Lyrica only when I get symptoms about every 3 days. But Tylenol also works but not as well as Lyrica. I am supposed to take Lyrica 2/day. But I take it 1/day twice week. Now weight is no problem, nor pain.

If it feels like muscles twitching, it's possibly what's called Myclonus. I'm sure other things can cause this, but one thing that can is Lyrica.
I've slapped my face with my phone a couple of times. 😳 I can't keep my hand on a mouse, because my finger will click it, on it's own. It's annoying but the least of my worries, compared to the pain I wake up & go to sleep with daily.
