Last night out of the blue I started getting a shocking feeling in one area on my left arm what could cause this? It happens every once in awhile and always happens in one area on my arm.


Welcome to Spine-Health

Based on your sentence above, I doubt if anyone could even begin to guess.

It would be very helpful if you could provide us with more details. Here are some questions that you
should answer:

  • - When did this first start?
    - Was it the result of an accident or trauma?
    - What doctors have you seen?
    - What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?
    - What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results
    - What medications are you currently using?
    - Has surgery been discussed as an option?
    - What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?

Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.

Please take a look at our forum rules: Forum Rules

Also please remember, there is no one on this forum site that is a medical professional. Therefore, no one can provide you with a diagnosis of your problem. You need to discuss that with your doctor.

    Hard to say, what brings on the shock? Too many details needed to confirm. Best to discuss this with your doctor.
