I don't know if this is the same as what you all are describing -- I guess it feels more like a shock than anything else, but I would not call it painful. Especially when awakening in the nite (maybe they woke me?) and upon waking in the morning, these have become very strong and shoot all the way down my legs and all the way down my arms. Used to only be my legs, now most of my body is involved.
Whatever that feeling is, I have had it before in the past, but much milder. I noticed that it sometimes used to happen at the beginning of a hot flash when I was in menopause (long past)
My daughter says she sometimes has 'nerve shock'. I looked that up and it does not quite explain what I feel.
This does happen a few times during the day, but is most prominent while in bed.
These shooting 'shocks' or whatever they are used to not bother me, they were so mild. They have gradually become stronger and stronger and I will still not describe them exactly as 'painful', but the sensation is becoming quite uncomfortable.
Going back to Roses' original post: yeah, I guess it does feel sort of like being plugged into an electrical outlet. And I think I only drool at nite.
