Reply To: Electric Shocks anyone??

I get these electric shocks too several times during the day and night. In different parts of the body–feet, arms, scalp, sometimes I feel 2 shocks at the same time in different parts of the body (in my abdomen or my side and in my extremity). My doctor prescribed Cymbalta–but I haven’t filled my prescription yet. I try to tolerate these shocks. The drug is pretty expensive–almost one hundred dollars for 3 month supply. Bny 806, What do you mean by creepy crawly sensations? I have had CIDP for 2 years and 2 months now. I asked my doctor “why I am having these shocks; isn’t IVIG suppose to help regenerate the nerves?” He really couldn’t give me a straight answer; he probably didn’t know the answer. I don’t get numbness with the shocks. But I get occasional numbness in my right fingers; on the ball of my right foot, I feel there’s something underneath it–the doctor says that’s “numbness”. Sometimes my legs occasionally feel like “pins and needles”.
