peripheral neuropathy/electric'shocks'

How can I tell the difference between a '1st time'  'electric surge' from feet to hands leaving right leg heavy/aching   for 24 hrs. and  the 'heart' type experience my Doctor said it miay have been?  I am a 70 + woman with non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy from 2010 and several chronic but minor mobility problems eg tense hip /adductor tendon inflamation (inflammation)/buttock pain all in the right hip area (having physiotheraphy and  do daily advised exercises) I have very little bone degeneration.

If a Neurologist does a basic Neurological exam they can tell if there is neurological damage. They can also tell exactly where in the Nervous system it is. I was on a Cancer drug that can cause periferal neuropathy. My MS Specialist used a tuning fork on my feet and hands. After the test he said I did not have periferal neuropathy miy neuropathy came from my spinal cord from the MS. He then did a MRI which showed lesions on my spinal cord consistent with MS. A good neurologist does not need MRIs they can tell by the simple neuro exam eactly where damage is.
