I get sharp electrical shock type pain in my clavicle area. Always the same place. It will last on and off for about 30 minutes. It's not horrible, but very uncomfortable. I have many different issues I deal with, but just recently began having this pain? Thoughts?
What I was told by the Rheumatologists & Neurologists that I have seen is that fibro attacks the nerves & muscles in your body, along with a lot of other things. Basically it can mess with our wiring and how our body interprets the signals our nerves & muscles are trying to give us.
this article is older, so its a little out of date but the answers it provides regarding the "electric shock" feeling seems to be right on. The article is not at the top of the page, its a little further down & is broken up by lots of annoying stuff (ads, pics, etc).
I've had them in just about every part of my body at some point along with the muscle jerking, cramps, creepy crawling bug like feelings, etc. Right now I am getting the electric shock feelings in the top of my feet. I broke my left ankle in 3 places & dislocated my ankle in dec. It is still swollen & the shocking pains are very bad & frequent in it. I also get these pains in my right foot due to compensating for my left foot. My ortho told me that the swelling, pain & shocking feelings could last for a year or more. In my left foot I also ge t shocking feeling on top & close to the incisions & at the joint of the ankle & foot. My ortho said this was due to nerve damage that would relieve when the nerves regenerated, if the fibro allows them to. I was instructed to message the incisions & foot with lotion to encourage the nerve regeneration.
I have started taking tumeric and magnesium and B complex it helped with the restless leg and muscle spasms
@A MyFibroTeam Member: Maybe you should still have your Dr. check out that clavicle shock-type pain, just to be sure it's part of having fibro. Women can have different symptoms than men, with heart-related issues. I'm sure you are ok, but check with the doc to be sure. Take care.
Yes. I get shock like pains all over. They come on fast and usually go away fast too. It makes me jerk when it hits my clavicle area. It hurts briefly but more starteling than painful. I've had fibro for 30 years but don't remember having this happen until the last few years. Its not just you at least. Hugs
