From what i’ve come to understand, this is fairly common with ms’ers and I have experienced these sort of tingly/shock sensations myself. Seems to be all linked to the whole ‘crossed wires’ thing of the brain. Hopefully this shouldn’t occur too often though as it’s just one of those niggly on/off symptoms that pops up from time to time.

I’ve gotten the electric shock in my neck. It’s called Lermittes (sp?) I’ve had it 2-3 times and it’s always been in the heat of the summer while I’m blow drying my hair… lesson learned now…

I’ve gotton the electric shock and the tingles too. In my case it is pretty regular. Neurontin and Baclofen are meds that help.

I get the electric shock feeling a lot!!! Mostly in my thighs, feet, and now recently my left hand and forearm. Not a good feeling.

jat712 – i had it in my neck too, years ago, can remember it began with an L but can’t remember how to spell it!!!!!!!! i had it whenever i bent my head down it ran from my neck, down my spine – very strange sensation and a bit like when you have a bad tooth and you keep prodding it and it hurts – i kept bending my head down and it set it off – WHY?!?!?!?!!? because i was a plonker!!!! i think it lasted about 6 months and i’ve never had it again!

Snap Becks I kept on doing that, why I dont know, think I was testing to see if it had gone away! Lhermittes drove me round the bend for about three months, it was so severe I could feel it travel down my spine and through my foot that it actually lifted my toes up, its gone now thank goodness! and I dont want it back!!!
