Denegeration shown, bone spurs on facet joints in lumbar region., No Diabetes, No history of High Blood Pressure, No Medications, No Osteoporosis, No Hx of Cancer, No Unexplained Weight Loss, No Bowel/Bladder issues

    Random Electric Shock Felling In Knee

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    Anyone have any ideas what would cause this? I get the pain at random, while walking, sweeping or just sitting.

    The pain is on the inside of my left knee, towards the back. Normally it's just one shock but sometimes it pulses. If it's happening moving or shifting weight doesn't change it. Sometimes it's several times in a day other times there's nothing for a week or so.

    Sometimes i feel the pain at the same time in the left side of my ribs, sometimes it feels like the pain joins up between the knee and the rib.

    Most of the time i can hide it and i just feel temporarily paralysed for a milli second but the bad ones i can't help but cry out.

    This only happens during the day although i'm a heavy sleeper. I do suffer from bad cramp in my calfs during the night occasionally.

    The Lumbar MRI showed a possibilty of impingment on a nerve by the bone spurs on the facet joints but i had no nerve realted pains at the time of the scan. The MRI of my neck showed a little degeration. If i lay down i can't raise my arms above my head wthout loosing feeling in them (like loss of blood circulation) and severe pain in the top of my left shoulder. Consultant thought the ligaments were being impinged because of the degeneration in my neck. If i force the arms down to the floor i will get sharp pains in my shoulder for the next few days which feel like sudden cramp or like the nerves are being sharply pulled past each other. I avoid pilates exercies whihc involve laying on your back and moving your arms above your head as my left shoulder clicks and grinds like it's getting caught in the socket. My posture is poor but i am working on this, i roll my shoulders forward and stick my neck out. I get stiffness in both my neck and back when i sleep which is improved when i get up and move about.

    I do pilates once a week and gentle walking about 20mins a day. I have a horse so i pick up about 3/4 barrow load of poo a day. I'm not on any medication and i'm not overweight.

    Thanks

    Re: Random Electric Shock Felling In Knee

    From the symptoms you describe, I would think that hamstring cramps and impingments (muscles, vasculature, and/or nerves) are likely to be the cause. If you're listing the picking up of poo, you are likely aware of tension and feel that this might be a cause. Always follow up on your own suspicions. Of you have a lot of tension, dealing with that first (massage, stretching, relaxation) might be a good idea.

    Thanks - we do hamstring strecthes at pilates which i find difficult so i may be overdoing it. The instructor is a physiotherapist so i'll see if i can have a word in between classes about it. The poo picking i tend to crouch down as i can't bend over from the waist due to my back. I do have to push up to stand each time so that may not help but i've been doing it for a long time without problems before.

    Re: Random Electric Shock Felling In Knee

    We recommend the Physio Shop - www.physioshop.co.uk
    For optimal hamstrikg stretching, use the contract/relax method. Using your legs when lifting is excellent to prevent further injury to your back. Working on your back seems of the utmost priority. Pilates usually focuses on core training, which is optimal. Stretching and mobility training for your spine might also be advocable. As with all these things, it is hard to give advice without being present oneself in order to examine, evaluate, and adjust based on what happens when advice is followed. Checking with your Pilates instructor is a very good idea since that person would be able to suggest and demonstrate specific excercises and follow up on your progress.
