Shooting Pains

Shooting Pains

I seem to get a stabbing/shooting pain that comes out of nowhere. I have had it in my arms, legs, sides, hips....everywhere. The intense pain hits me for about 30 secs to 1 min and it stops me in my tracks/doubles me over. Is this a common symptom, does anyone else get this?? I also find that after, that part of the body really aches for the rest of the day. What causes this?

Oh yeah, I get these! It usually starts with sore spots, then knots in the muscles, then spasms. It shoots down my thigh and calf making my feet tingle or knots up my lower back and shoots pain down my legs or up my back. I've had full leg Charlie Horse type hard spasms then knotting muscles that leave massive bruises. XX I hope yours gets better soon, they suck rocks! 😟

Yes you have to examine what type of pain. I have both muscle spasms that become seizures or long term cramps and I get the tingle, pins & needles numbness of neuropathy

I get those also! I can't help but cry out in pain some times when it first hits! My chest is where most of the "spasms" hit me. Double me over and frequently take me to the ground! People keep thinking I'm having a heart attack.... And yes, sometimes it's just a single short spasm, and other times the pain continues or recurs for several minutes. Even after the spasms appear to go away, I can't move a single muscle for a while for fear that they will return and when they do it's with a vengeance! Afterword's, my entire body feels like I've been run over by a car and I'm exhausted!
