Random Nerve Pain


I'm hoping someone can help me with the symptoms I'm experiencing. This probably isn't the right board, but as I mention in the bottom of this thread, I suffer from acid reflux and thought maybe there is a correlation.

I've been having random shooting nerve pain for almost 2 years now. It has gotten much worse over the last 6-8 months. The pain is not constantly there, but comes randomly, anywhere on my body and last just a few seconds. But, when it comes, it is sometimes very intense and sends a wave through my entire body. Overall, I have some days where I experience over 30 zaps in a day, maybe more. They almost feel electrical in nature. Also, when I'm active and/or busy, they are much less frequent. A couple more things...i get them while sleeping (but more so upon first waking up) and they are much more frequent after lunch. My job involves sitting at the desk for extended periods, which is the time when I seem to notice them more.

I have talked with doctor about it who eventually referred me to a neurologist. The neuro really didn't know what it was. They decided to do a brain MRI and other tests, which all came back normal.

Overall, i'm a very healthy guy, 30 years old, 6'3, 210 lbs. I played collegiate basketball and played professionally in Europe. I continue exercising to this day. My body feels okay, otherwise. I don't have any muscle weakness or anything like that.

Other medical issues: I have sufferered from anxiety in the past and high stress over the years. I have never taken any medication for this, though my brother and cousins do take anti-anxiety medications. I also have had twitching in eyelids and other places in body. My only other condition that may have a relation is that I suffer from acid-reflux. I do take prilosec semi-regularly which helps.

I look forward to hearing from people.

Re: Random Nerve Pain

Quick question...What were these other tests that the neurologist did on you?
