Electrical Shock Feeling

Hi,

For about the past 2 weeks I have been getting a stabbing pain in my right little toe and a feeling like an electrical shock down the side of my foot when I move my foot a certain way. It happens mainly at night while I'm in bed. It will also happen if I stretch my leg out completely. Does anyone else get an electrical shock feeling because of moving your feet? This is the foot I went to the doctor about because of walking into corners of walls with my little toe, because I wanted to make sure I hadn't broken anything. Nothing was broken, but I'm still having this pain/electrical shock feeling. When I cross my feet and my other foot hits the side of my right foot, it feels like a nerve is exposed. Even just rubbing up and down the side of my foot causes a strange sensation.

Thanks for any input on this subject.

By the way, I go for another MRI of my brain on Friday with triple contrast, so if it is MS, I'm hoping that something shows up so that I can finally get a diagnosis. I go back to the neuro the following Friday for the results, so I will let you know what he says.

Hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Hugs,

Lynn

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

Hi lynn I too get these electric shock sensations, if i brush the top of my foot with my hand i can feel the nerves running all over my feet like static kinda strange thing, wierd city...!! also i get it on my back as if somethings sticking out of my clothes and creating like a static feeling hard to describe really. I don't know if this is ms related though as i am still in limboland as too whats up with me...

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

Hi Janito,

Yes, when my other foot or something hits the side of my foot it feels as if something is running inside along the side of my foot, somewhere between a strange sensation and pain/shock feeling.

Have a great day!

Hugs,

Lynn

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

I will keep you posted. Unfortunately, I have been going through this for 3-1/2 years now and everything else has been negative. I am okay if it's MS, I just want to find out what it is so then I can get on with my life and deal with it.

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

I know where you are at. ive been at this only about 18 months and im fed up!! to say the least. I just want a box to put it in and then just get on and deal with it what ever it is.. I havent looked any further than the symptoms i'll leave that to the if i have it stage. My husband has a cousin with MS its the worse one you can get apparently so i am fully aware of what could happen with ms. I still hoping its something or nothing and it will just go away as quick as it came ( fingers crossed)..xx.

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

Have you been to a neurologist and had any testing done?

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

I can totally understand where you're coming from! Have you gotten copies of all your medical records, tests, etc? I got copies of everything and scanned them into my computer, so that I have everything and can just print out copies for any new doctor I may go to see. Also, I have two lists of my symptoms...one from 2004 and one from 2007.

I wish you well in getting a diagnosis. I know this "limboland" isn't fun!

God bless,

Lynn

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

Yes, electricity can come with the shock that is MS (pun intended, albeit admittedly bad)!

Look up "L'Hermitte's Sign" or "L'Hermitte's" and see if this describes what you're experiencing.

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

Next time, when you GET The films done- tell them you need copies while you are there because you area taking them yourself to the doctors office afterwards...around here, if you are willing to wait 15 minutes, they will give them to you...maybe they will do that where you live?

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

They shouldn't charge you if you tell them you need them to take to a specialist. I have never had to pay to get my films.

Thanks Nikki for the advice! I am having another MRI tomorrow and I need my films to take to the neuro next Friday, but I didn't know you could get them that quickly. I will certainly ask about that tomorrow!

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Hugs,

Lynn

Re: Electrical Shock Feeling

Lynn,

I too have been having electric shocks. For the most part they have been limited to my face but a few days I started getting them in my right leg. Electric shock runs down from my hip to my right foot. Usually happens when I am walking. I will be fine and suddenly it feels like I have been hit by lightning. Hope you get some answers!

Blessings to you!!
Michelle
