Turns out it’s shingles! The electric shock feeling on my scalp is because my rash, now lesions, are on my neck, behind my ear and half way up the back of my scalp. Believe me, I have wondered…could i possibly have two things going on at the same time?? I have to go back to the doctor on Tuesday so they can see the progression and make sure the path it’s on is not a danger to my eye. If I’m still having the electric shock feeling on my scalp, I’ll address TN once again. I think they dismissed it after they saw the rash on my neck going up into my scalp. Also, I have NO facial pain, and that seems to be the most prominent symptom.
I am currently having this very thing going on. It started last evening and I am still experiencing it 20 hours later. I have had it before in the past, but never this painful or lasting this long. I timed it and I’m having between 4 and 6 episodes every minute with the episode lasting one or two seconds max. I barely made it through the grocery store today because I’m in so much pain and it’s hard to not wince, distort my face, or call out when its happening. I had to call off work today because of it because I work with the public. I got very little sleep last night and unless this lightens up some, I don’t think I’m going to be getting much tonight. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning. I’ve taken 9 motrin in the last 12 hours. It helps for an hour or two and then it’s right back to where it was. It’s maddening. How does one put up with this for long periods of time??
