I have feet painful tingling sensation like electrical shock bothers me mostly when I try to go to sleep. My blood test did not showe anything in particular and I am not diabetic. My NCV test says:
NCS : absent sensory latencies
EMG : neurogenic EMG findings
Moderate distal symmetrical sensory-motor peripheral polyneuropathy in the both lower limbs; mostly azonal type, superimposed onthe chronic bilateral L4, L5, S1 roots irritation ( ?? spinal canal stenosis )
Welcome to the forum!
Your symptoms (painful tingling sensation like electrical shock in both the feet) and nerve study, there is a possibility of compression of lumbo-sacral spinal nerve. When there is pressure on nerve roots also called as irritation of the nerve roots, the first symptoms to appear are pain and tingling.
This is what has probably happened in your case due to canal stenosis and narrowing of the canal through which these nerves pass.
Please discuss this with a neurologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
