Hi all

Lately I seem to be full of electricity I put an earth strap on the rollator but the problem is it’s not bouncing off me now it’s staying in me particularly if I am in a shop .

It makes me feel quite on well any one any ideas is it dangerous is it any thing to do with my ms.
Thanks all

Please don’t be alarmed! It has nothing to do with your ms.
It could happen to anyone.
It’s basically a static charge building up.
The reason it happens especially in shops is they have floor surfaces that help build it up around you and your earth strap can’t do it’s job well as it can’t find a good way to do it’s job properly due to what the floors are made from.
If you touch a radiator as you pass it it won’t happen as frequently.
I taught my daughter to rub her feet back and forward very fast with socks on to give her mother a little buzz.
My wife gave a little slap for showing her how to do it!
Hope that made sense.
