I'm starting a thread for you Wish I Might so everyone can welcome you. Sometimes newbies get lost in old threads.

Hi Everyone,
I'm new to the site and so glad to read some of these posts.  I've experienced this as well.  The first time it happened it was in my eyeball.  Just a quick painful shock that scared me to death.  It stayed in my right eye for quite awhile.  It would just come and go randomly, and at first I thought I'd gotten something in my eye.  It was only later that I realized it was something quite different.  Since then, I've been nearly driven over the edge by intense itching and electric shocks all over my body.  I've been reading up on myoclonus, and am beginning to believe this might be what's involved.  Has anyone here been diagnosed with myoclonus?  If so, I would love to hear more about it.  Thanks and God bless.

Hi, and welcome!  Well, I hadn't heard of myoclonus so I did a search  Some with MS have this.  Have you been checked out for that?  It is one of the illnesses that have many of the same symptoms as fibromyalgia.  There is medication to help if you do.
Doctors usually run a bazillion tests to rule out other illnesses that have many of the same symptoms as fibro before a diagnosis of fibromyalgia is given.  Hopefully you did have everything ruled out first.  If so, this could be something associated with fibro.
I find that if I do too much searching, I find out more than what I WANT to know!  I used to read medical books and then my body took on many of the symptoms of what I was reading about.  It drove me crazy and jacked up my anxiety.  So, I don't do that anymore and I feel much, much better!
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  There are links to good information about fibromyalgia there, including a list of symptoms and a link to What Else Could It Be.  You will learn a lot there.
I'm so glad you found us and joined our fibro family!  Don't hesitate to ask questions.  We are here to help you.  Hope to hear more from  you soon.
