Electric Pains

Electric Pains

The last few days I’ve had these electric shock pains. Currently along my forearm and pelvic area primarily. Its almost like my skin is irriated by clothes touching it. Does anyone else get these sensations often?

My neurologist diagnosed me with neuropathy (can also effect autonomic nervous system) I thought I was having an allergy to something, itching, twitching, electric shocks. Lupus has a distinct kind of neuopathy from the diabetic type. It started out on my face of all places felt like I was getting stung. All of this is worse at night. I'm on Neurontin that helps some. I can't describe how just felt on edge since this started. Felt for sure he would say it was anxiety he was all over ordering neuro. blood work.

I get those everytime im in a flare, they happen all over my body.. a warm bath will help. If you try epsom salt in a bath it reduces inflammation, also motrin
