Muscle Pain After Electric Shock
Muscles: Shocks: At low energy levels, electric shocks stimulate the individual muscle cells to twitch singly. At medium energy levels, the muscle cells contract as a group within a muscle bundle. At high energy levels, the whole muscle group will contract. Excessive energy will damage the muscle and release proteins that can cause kidney failure. ...Read more
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
I'm having muscle cramps & electric shock sensation in my traps/supraspinatus. The cramps are so intense that they're sore. What causes&whatcan I do?
The effects of an electrical shock depends upon the amount of current and how long of a contact was made.
Mostly, small shocks cause some local tissue swelling and pain. Unlikely to affect your brain as the way electricity runs is through the low resistance parts of the body. Might get some neck pain, some neuralgias of the scalp. Again, effects depend upon the amount of current really. ...Read more

Yes and maybe: Certainly arrhythmia can occur at the time of and immediately after an electric shock. Usually. That would be transient. As to whether a shock can cause ongoing arrhythmia that is harder to answer. Palpitations, unexplained, are so common that it would be hard to prove that the rhythm problem was caused by the shock. So I doubt the relation between electric shock and chronic arrhythmia. ...Read more
Breast pain: At mid-thirties, in a normal cycle (no oral birth control) the hormone levels are much higher than in one's 20's, so breast stimulation is higher as well.

I touched a light switch with a wet hand, had a slight electric shock, didn't hurt but was surprising. Hand tingles a bit but that's all, serious?
Not from what you:
Describe but I wouldn't repeat it again! Sometimes its better to be lucky. I'd get that light switch looked at by an electrician and put some electrical tape over the switch (with dry hands and gloves) so no one has that happen.
If the tingling stops ok, if it persists get evaluated as the shock may be the precipitant that highlights the issue rather than the cause of the problem. ...Read more

Am diagnosed with MS having 2 lesions on spine causing electric shock symptoms up spine into head, could I safely take hypericum to dampen pain.?
Why consider this?: Hypericum is a homeopathic remedy for anxiety and depression, and would have absolutely no effect on a Lhermitte's phenomenon, which you describe. You would likely find better benefits from gabapentin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, Gralise, or Horizant, all prescription meds which your doctor could provide. Also, make certain that you are taking a potent MS medication, such as one of the orals, or Tysabri (natalizumab). ...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
