Shocking sensations

I am 39 years old and I've been experencing a shocking sensation that's starts in my neck and goes through my entire body.(like a flash)it happens a lot when I walk but it also does it when I'm in bed sometimes. I have lower back pain to but I don't think it's related to the neck thing.i am a patient at the VA hospital and they can't find anything wrong.does anyone know what might be causing these shocking sensations.

Sounds like a pinch nerve, does neck movement cause it to happen?
Have they considered doing an X-ray or MRI?

Yes neck movement and walking,the VA done a MRI and they said they couldn't find anything and it was prob just muscle spasms so they gave me flexirels but it don't help.i was thinking it might be a pinched nerve too.

Maybe you should see a Dr outside of the VA, did you get a copy of the MRI report?

If the flexeril doesn't help, ask for Soma.
It COULD I fact be muscle spasms that are actually causing pressure ON the nerve(s). That's a problem that I had and only until they had me on a STRONG ENOUGH muscle relaxer it kept happening. They were happening at times every few minutes & I started to look like I had a shock collar on, lol (NOW anyway).
Some docs don't like Soma, so if he balks at that idea, ask him if you can try 2 flexeril. Chances are, he put you on a low dose to start and that might work out ok.
Good luck.
