Electric shock….edited…

When I say electric shock, I mean I felt a jolt in the nerve in my left leg, that transgressed up the leg (in other words it did the backwards action, instead of the brain, it was the leg nerve) and it hit my whole left side of my body… and than I could literally feel my heart beating stronger…this lasted less than a minute, but long enough to hurt, and not hurt in a cardio way….

This is a symptom of the neuropathy and the brain… When this happens, that is when I feel tired…

After a little bit, the nerve in my left leg will get hot, in fact right now I can feel things flexing in my leg, because the nerve is hot an active….it will feel warm to the touch, as if I had a hot mustard pack on my leg… not a fun feeling….

This leg had surgery in 2011, to release the nerve… The surgeon said the nerve was so compressed, it was amazing I could walk at all… an she asked have you had trauma to your legs??? At that time I said no, I had not remembered the beatings from childhood…

Having surgery, gave me stability… but the nerve damage is not reversible, so exercise is key to keep my mobility… Both legs are impacted, but I opted for exercise for the right leg…

Not comfortable when this happens and zaps my energy… Hoping to buy a elliptical when we move home next year, to help build more strength an keep that mobility…
