I was wondering if anyone else gets electrical shock feelings in their limbs?
Yes, I do. They're so weird!
Yes I used to get them all the time when I was first dx with FMS/CFIDS then I went on Neurontin. I take it at night because if I take it during the day I get to wiggy and tired.
I have increased by 300mg initally to 1200mg right now it started working almost right away on me. My Dr said if they start to come back I can up it another 300mg, but for now it's seems to have stopped at the 1200 dose.
I have been having those for about a week really bad. in hands and feet. I hate those things. Not taking anything for it yet.
and isn't it fun!! the worse is in my feet. It kills me! I simply love it!! (please note the sarcasim!)
It's almost like your hand has touched a light socket
It comes and goes, thank goodness its not constant for me.
My mother has CFS and she has had the electircal shocks a few times. She told me that it felt like lightening had hit her.
when reaching up, etc. I thought it was a muscle zapping, like a rubber band that pops. It hurts though.
its horrid - I've found that if I'm coming off a medication I get it more.
Had them all my life. Move a certain way and it sent a shock down my arm. Strange thing is I haven't had them in a while...
Course then maybe the pain has taken them away?
In our library there is an article by Dr Cheney on Klonopin. He explains why this happens and how Klonopin can help. It took me a few years to discover this board. But thanks to that article, I zing no more.
