Electric shock sensation in hands/feet

HELP MEMBERS!!! Two weeks ago, I was spraying the roses for bugs. I did not have gloves on, and I got a few good puncture wounds from the thorns on the back of my hands. The next evening, I was inside, walked outside, and felt as it it was beginning to sprinkle. It was all over my body. Within the next 24 hours, I began feeling something like electric shocks going through my arms, legs, hands and feet. Now, it has primarily settled in my hands, occasionally my feet. I spoke with my doctor, who wants blood tests,, but I can see he does not have a clue because most infections from roses don't have my symptoms. No tingling, no numbness, no redness, no bumps -- just those awful electric shocks/bee stings all through my hands and feet. What should I do???

I get those blood tests done and go from there. If they don't give you any answers and you are still having conditions I'd ask my PCP to get me into a Neurologist.

Re: Electric shock sensation in hands/feet

Thanks so much for responding, Rising Parrot. I did have my blood work done
yesterday, and I will be seeing my PCP in a couple days.

This possibly could turn out to be temporary. Today (after three weeks) I barely noticed it at all. First time, but I will follow through. Thanks again!!

Re: Electric shock sensation in hands/feet

I'm brand new to this website, so forgive me if you already received a
reply from me ... Thank You, Rising Parrot, for responding. Symptoms
were practically gone today. First time in three weeks I have felt
normal; however, I will follow-through and see my PCP. Did my bloodwork
yesterday. Certainly something not to ignore, so thanks again. Judy867

Re: Electric shock sensation in hands/feet

So glad you had your blood work done. If you don't get the answers from your pcp you MIGHT have to see a Neurologist.

I'm SO glad today is better for you. It's nice when a user on this board has a good day.

Take care and let us know how your blood work comes out.
