MS and "Shocks"

Hello to all!  I have PPMS. Lately, Ive been getting what feels like a jolt of electricity in my legs.  Maybe more like a bee sting.  It's hard to explain.  It doesn't hurt but it is uncomfortable as I never know when I will get a jolt.  
Anyone else?

Have you talked to your doctor about this?   That burning/stinging type of feeling is something a lot of people get called Dysesthesia.  Not sure if that is what you describe.  Here's info on it. https://www.healthline.com/health/dysesthesia  It usually happens because of sensory nerve damage. Does it happen enough and is it bothersome enough that you'd want to use medication to treat it?
