Has anyone ever felt the twinges I am?

Every once in a while I feel these twinges, shock sensation, surges in my head and in my nerve endings. Sometimes they last for days. I can't think or do much of anything as it interferes. Just wondering if anyone knows what this is and why.

still crying and want to sleep. First appt. with counselor on wed. can't wait. I need it.

Have a great day

hi there,

can't say I notice twinges. I have sort of shock moments, but that's just the alertness I have, i think.

Re: Has anyone ever felt the twinges I am?

I get the nerve twinges in my arms, hands, legs and feet. It frequently keeps me from sleeping and it just drives me crazy. I've been to see a neurologist and had nerve conduction tests, which are no fun at all. They say I have peripheral neuropathy. The doctors don't offer any help or any way to relieve the twinges. I just have to put up with it, but sometimes it is more than I can deal with. It is especially difficult after several sleepless nights.

Re: Has anyone ever felt the twinges I am?

I'm not sure if I expereince the same things, but I expereince something similar. Several times throughout the day my head does something really weird. I don't even know how to really describe it, but it feels like it is moving on it's own almost like a shiver. On occasion it makes me whole body shiver/twitch. It's not continual shivers or twitches but more like one big one. I also don't know what it is or why it happens but would definately be interested in knowing more about it!

Re: Has anyone ever felt the twinges I am?

I am very familiar with the twinges. For me, they started when I asked to be taken off of Lexapro and was prescribed Wellbutrin.

It feels like my body jumps forward in time for a split second and then my mind catches up to it. A very surreal feeling.

I have also felt the shocks go down my arms during these twinges as well.

Re: Has anyone ever felt the twinges I am?

wagon daddy, I also get that jump ahead feeling. What is up with that? I still get it sometimes and it seems to happen at times when I'm really worked up. but doesn't always. It is a very odd thing indeed.
