Does anyone else get this strange electric shock sensation? I'm not sure how to describe it.

I'll feel a shock in my arm, and my arm slightly jerks. Later I'll feel this shock in one of my legs. I never really have these in my head. I some times have it in my back.

I recently relapsed and developed this symptom (among others) while off abx for a short period of time.

I'm now back on abx, but wondering which coinfection to attribute this to, or if anyone else has this?

yes, i've had it on my face a few times.

the one symptom that can send me through the roof.

i had it soon after my tick bite when all i seemed to experience were lyme symptoms.

after a few months of doxy, those symptoms went away (dormant,not gone) and bartonella symptoms were left.

my best guess is lyme.

I use to get them in the head and neck all through childhood maybe a dozen times a year.

I haven't had one episode sence being in treatment.

I think theres something to that. Not sure which infection to blame.

All the time!! I had Bart too when I first got sick but they were actually able to eradicate that part of it so since it still happens to me I'm guessing it's the Lyme.

When I first contracted Lyme, I used to get them all over. The worst place was in the eye.

I do not get them in my neck or face at all. I only get them in my extremeties; arms, legs, some times my back too.

Anyone else get them in places other than their face?

I'm trying to distinguish between electric shock sensation and pinprick sensation, as both, in my opinion, could cause you to jerk.

I get what I describe as a pinprick sensation in my legs from time to time, and my leg will jerk from it.

I haven't had it in a while though, so I don't know what it is from.

I guess some times mine could be considered pinprick. Its so difficult describing these sensations!

However, mine are certainly not from time to time. Mine are about twice every hour. Some times, they are very mild, and other times, much more noticeable.

The weird thing is, I did not have these a year ago as one of my initial symptoms. They recently came with my relapse.

I get the electrical shock feelings in my arms and legs. I also get the pinprick feeling. These are new symptoms for me and I've been treating lyme and co for almost 4 years now.

I've been actively targeting bart and babs lately and am wondering if this is a part of the herx reactions.

Do these sensations come and go? Mine have been fairly constant for a few months now.
