    Short Sharp Pains In The Head And Eletric Shock Feeling In Thr Brain

    For years I have had short sharp pains in my head sometimes just one and sometimes clusters of them. Lately I had elertic shock feeling in my brain and for a few seconds I'm dizzy. Any ideas what this is?

    Welcome to the boards, Regina!

    What does your doctor think it is? And what tests have you had done?

    I wish I did, I get the same BUT no pain as such,
    The best way I can describe the sensation is a very very brief pulse, 1 or two ata time, almost like the sensation when a blister is popped and there is a change in the pressure in the body, a little like an electric shock but not as sharp. I find it's worse just after waking up, sometimes can go for days without it occuring. but lately can have 4 every 5 seconds. There is a link to slight neck moevment and slight eye movement.

    spcfnz,

    I too seem to be having "pulses" also. At first I thought they were palpitations, but every EKG,x-ray, or holter monitor test my doctors have done is negative. My blood pressure runs high most of the time, so they don't think that's a contributing factor. I am on a number of meds, for depression, my high BP, and now I'm told I'm diabetic. The only consistent trigger I can find thus far, is if I forget to take my medications for a day. It's a feeling like touching an electric fence, without any pain. Just like a thump or two, disorientation, and sometimes I can "hear" a kind of swooshing sound when I move my eyes or turn my head suddenly. It usually subsides after I take my medications for that day, but it doesn't any less scary, or any less frustrating when the doctors can't find anything. Every time I bring it up to the doctors, they run another EKG, which of course comes back negative.

    Update,
    Ok I can now confirm that taking a small 1-2 day break from my antidepressants ( Effexor -xr) will cause a bout of these pulses in my head.
    However there is still a link to movng the eyes very slightly, which will trigger a one off pulse.
    How many others here have been on anidepressants, can you list brands ?
