I get a lot of electrical shocks - in my legs, arms, back... but usually my legs.
For me it's usually just one area at a time, but I have had them in several places at one time.
Some get quite painful.

I drool a lot while sleeping, because I have an enormous amount of saliva. If I'm not careful, I can choke on it really easily.

My Dad also had too much saliva, not sure why he had this problem.

For me one of my most common symptoms are those electric shocks, I get them every day in different parts of the body, can be a small muscle but also and much more often the bigger muscles. It only lasts a few minutes, and it can be one shock or 2 or 3 and then its stops.
Lyme is sooooo confusing!!! Am I going mad???

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.

What would I do w/o mi friends with no faces?
It is so comforting knowing u are here, I was treated by a lyme doc for years I did get better but never cured? I have no slpeen which I hope explains this so that all of u will indeed get well. drugs are prozac a beta blocker (blocks the feeling of mitral valve) and xanax when needed. at least mi brain is working this time the electrical shocks in mi left thigh have preceded the numbness in legs but because knees hurt i know legs are there. having a dinner guest from hubbys work i willhave to wash this sweaty greasy hair. whew. dog hair all over too. wish me luck as I wish u. if only there were a pill
