Hello Eveyrone,

This is my 1st time posting. I have a question. I have a family memberwho has on 2 occassions felt what they describe as an electric shock or jolt feeling to their heart. This has caused them some concern and would like to know if anyone else has experienced this.

This is a woman in her 40's who had this feeling once several months ago and on yesterday. The first time - she went to her Dr. who chalked it up to a possible anxiety attack and prescribed medicine for that.

Since she has not been under any stress lately she is wondering if it could be something more. She really did not feel as though it was an anxiety attack the 1st time - but went with the diagnosis.

Has anyone ever experienced this where it actually stops you in your tracks and afterwards there is tingling sensations in your fingers and toes?
