Yes miny ppl with anxiety and other things like MS have these brain zaps, kind of feels like a shock or buzzing feeling that can run down into your body as well, and some have said that a P/A will follow from it but I have not had one with this brain zapping myself and I do eat a lot of fish with omega 3 in it but has not helped out with this but you never know till you try it for yourself and others have said that it can help with your anxiety as well.
the zaps are like an electric shock to the head, Ive had them, I dont think they are caused by meds, but I dont know what they are
they do no harm so best to ignore them
Ive had them, like an electric shock in the brain, I think they are from anxiety rather than from meds
many report them they seem to be from anxiety and stress
Great discussion. As usual this is one of those topics that has conflict re what is and what isn't the cause of these "brain zaps"
I have heard them described as shocks, fullness in head, shock down arms and tingling in fingers, just about anything related to the head.
The brain zaps are not a common symptom of anxiety, but its unclear what that really refers too. Worry and focusing on symptoms creates all sorts of odd sensations that are usually meaningless in terms of a medical diagnosis.
Many people have had CT scans and EEGs, plus a multitude of tests without finding a cause.
People on meds, however, experience brain zaps from a fair amount of the antidepressants and yes Klonopin can but rarely is associated with brain zaps.
I hope that the people suffering from these zaps may soon find relief.
Remember your physician is your professional on any of these conditions so please do not substitue the information here for a visit to your physician.
I believe that these brain zaps are called lhermitte's ( a shocking sensation that can radiates down the back and in the head)
