sunshine, I'm new to all 'this' as well. And, it sounds like we may have had a similar introduction to this 'thing'. My introduction has been optic neuritis and occasional quick, sharp, 'stabbing', 'electric', pains. And now another mystery seems to be less so thanx to this thread. I hadn't heard the term, L'Hermittes before much less know what it was.
I did mention the pain to my Neuro on my first visit but I'd only had one or two at that point and she acknowledged it but didn't elaborate. Since then there's been at least one every other day somewhere on my body. Mine aren't bad – tho, I do have pretty high tolerance for pain – just 'shocking'. Some do make me jump.
I've learned alot about MS in the past few weeks and my CIS Dx but the 'individuality' of the disease makes it difficult to get a handle on what I'm personally experiencing. Since I found this forum yesterday, that's already begun to change.
I sincerely hope I can 'earn my keep' in this forum.
