A great WordPress.com site

I thought I had experienced the gamut of symptoms that Fibromyalgia and Polyarthralgia could throw at me!  It has proven me wrong!!!!

For the past couple of days, I have had the strangest sensations!  Like little electric shocks followed by a feeling of being completely unbalanced.

So…being the inquisitive type like I am…I began reading through as many of the University reports possible regarding these odd prickly/electric like ripples……

I found the following:

“The feelings and caused causes of fibromyalgia electric shock sensations can be described as follows:

Sensations

Feels like an electric shock traveling through one’s body, sometimes accompanied by a “falling sensation”.
Feels like pins and needles but more painful, alarming and pulsating.
Jerks the joints of arms, legs, fingers and toes
Can come on at any time and is like a flash of light followed by electric shock tingling.
Feels like “creepy crawlies” or ants crawling under one’s skin and causes the skin to tighten and jerk.
Feelings of twitching scalp along with facial twitching of mouth, eyes, and eyebrows.”

In further reading, I find that this “Fibromyalgia Electric Shock Sensation” can happen anytime, anywhere, intermittently…..that it can last for days, weeks or sometimes months!

Yikes!  It is SO bizarre!  Like a current that is rushing, randomly through the body…..and that “falling sensation” is scary!

I am thankful that I have undergone so many tests in the recent months to know that my “body” checks out as “normal”….I am thankful that this is just one more symptom of my condition!  (No…it does not take the scariness away….it just helps me to provide some positive self talk as I deal with this craziness!)

  1. Hi, I’ve chronic pain too, eight years now from physical trauma; damaged nerves and soft tissues in my hip. I also get these tickles as if someone is stroking my skin or like touching a concern, anywhere on my body. These sensations are also like pins and needles, numbness, more intense hot stabs, and what I call lightning bolts, shooting up my spine. I get dizzy, wobbly, sometimes fall. Strange, isn’t it? 🙂

    • Yes! It is so hard to describe! I find myself touching the walls and utilizing all around me to keep steady! That falling sensation is very disorienting!

  2. Touching a cobweb. My kindle speaking for me again!
