That DOES sound funny! ;o) I have burning down the right back side of my neck, into my upper back and down my arm, I always thought it was 'something else' not related to the (MS?) aching I get normally, but since I've been on neurontin, the burning has almost subsided completely, I still notice it once in a while when I, like you, get the electrical shocks down my arms and back and into my butt, but I don't feel it hardly ever now. I guess it still could be something else, but the neurontin is taking care of it so we'll see how the spinals come out in the next couple of weeks, if something shows up either as lesions or something else going on in that area.
Hang in there!
I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.
