Leg Pains (feels like electric shock)

I have Spastic Diplegia CP and for years I have had these pains in my legs every so often that come and go that feel like electric shock. The pain lasts a couple seconds, goes away and then comes back. I have always called them "bee stings"

Does anyone know what this is?

Re: Leg Pains (feels like electric shock)

yep i do cuz i used to get them all the time. whats happening to ur legs is this: the muscles that line the back of ur legs are getting dragged off to the side as you walk. over time the muscle tone becomes to high and starts to sting.

sit on a chair, twist your foot out and raise your leg slowly. repeat on your other leg.

ask a physical therapist about it to make sure we're talking about the same thing. most doctor's tend to ignore a cp patients complains as "cerebral palsy is not a painful condition."
