After bike n swim, hip joint inflamed. Sometimes pain n electric shock sensation when i stand n twist body left n right. Lumbar MRI fine. What's wrong?

Arthritis/bursitis: The hip could have osteoarthritis, which can be diagnoses by xray. If the hip is tender on the outer side, it could be a bursitis, which responds well to local steroid injection. Lumbar MRI often doesn't show pinched nerve, which can cause electric shock. Responds well to lumbar traction/physical therapy, or even epidural steroid injection. ...Read more

MULTIPLE CAUSES.: Most serious ican think of is pinched nerve but very unlikely. Atypical migraine-unlikely if daily. Arthritis in neck-would expect more non electric pain. How long have you had it? Does your head feel like being squeezed? Getting better or worse? Do not anticipate anything serious but visit to pcp should help ease your concern. ...Read more

Yesterday i had a pretty rough massage and i discontinued 25mg of anafranil (clomipramine) i'm getting these electric shock feeling all over is this dangerous? What

See your doctor.: Some people may experience withdrawal from meds including Anafranil (clomipramine) even at that low dose. I am not sure if your physician is cross-tapering you to an ssri. I assume you are being treated for ocd. If you began an ssri, then the symptoms should dissipate somewhat. If you had a thai massage w/ passive stretching, then you could have irritated nerves such as the sciatic one down the back of your leg. ...Read more

I had a very strong electric shock feeling in my left arm in the middle of the night that made me jump up out of bed. My arm was tingling afterwards. ?

Not worrisome: in and of itself, this is not too worrisome - probably you had your head angled in a way that a nerve root in your cervical spine became briefly compressed. That said, if the electrical pains and numbness persists and worsens, or (and especially) if you develop weakness in your arm somewhere (eg biceps) then a short steroid taper might help and an MRI of the C-spine may be warranted. ...Read more

Electric shock feeling lasting a second like 4 times in my stomach. Not really painful just weird above belly button on right side.

Abnormal sensation: When these kind of feelings happened one time and does not happen again it is hard to say. It could be your intestinal movements which were little stronger than usual for some reason. If happens again and again then we might want to think of underlying pathology like mal- absorption with excess gas production or intestinal obstruction. Most probably it is nothing to worry about ...Read more
