CURRENT CONDITION: Shocking pain from or around the spine like lightning bolts usually moving downward and to the right, lasting an average of 2-3 seconds but can last 30 seconds. Pain causes inability to move during shock. It happens randomly at intervals of once every other month to over 9 times a day. I will not move until the after pain and weirdness in body stops after the shock, knowing it will happen again if I do, for at least 30 secs. Visited local doctor, who after short physical examination and blood work for vitamin deficiencies, gave me a referral to see a neurologist but informed me there was a good chance there was no answer for my condition; "Sometimes, this just happens - we don't know why." I did not visit neurologist due to lack of funds and previous explanation that there was probably no answer. Now, 5 months later, I experienced today something like a simple partial seizure in which I was aware of my surroundings, but my eyes and eyelids were jerking around for more than 10 seconds and my body became tense. Afterward I was fine, save a newly acquired headache. I've never experienced this seizure-like thing before.
What could the pain be? Could the pain and the seizure thing be related? Is there enough evidence here to suggest that seeing a neurologist would be fruitful? Or is there still a great possibility that there will be no answer to my condition?
