Does Anyone Else Get Pain Like Someone Is Sticking A Pin In You

Does Anyone Else Get Pain Like Someone Is Sticking A Pin In You

Its like a sudden jabbing pain like someone has stabbed you with a pin or several pins. Its is so embarrassing when it happens and I have visitors. We can be talking away and suddenly I will jump up and shout OUCH!.
I feel such a fool, they must think I am nuts.
When my guest asks what's wrong I just reply I think I was stung by a wasp. Cos that's kind of what it feels like. Does anyone else experience this sudden random pain?😠

YES! Actually it feel like knives sometimes. I literally gasp out loud when I get the stabbing pain in the left side of my ribs. I freak my daughter out. I never know when it's going to happen. I get these pains in other areas too. I have gotten ice pick headaches too, those are the worst...

I get pains like getting stabbed with an ice pick randomly all over my body. I do feel embarrassed when this happens around other people. I find it hard to try to explain my body attacking me.

Those of us who swear a little...or a lot, maybe we should just yell “Tourette’s” afterwards and keep on walking?

Yes, almost like vines are curled around my legs especially, sudden quick, and... gone, pops up somewhere else.
my GP sent me to the neurologist and it is caused by blockages in the invisible nerves which carry natural sodium around the body. Unfortunately they were working on a treatment for this pre-Covid, cutting sodium intake is ineffective as its the bodys' own natural sodium, there are no supplements either, just our friend, good old pain management :) x

Yes, I frequently experience what feels like a pin sticking me out of the blue. Very disconcerting, especially went there's someone with you.
