130906 Electric Shock like pain at the leg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Electric SHOCK ATTACK on my left leg Knee up to thigh. Felt like some sort of nerve attack.  Starting last week, I have been experiencing some sudden electric Shock attack feeling on my left leg.  It comes with no warning... some time while sitting at the computer, some time during TV when I extend my leg on sofa.  It came all of the sudden, and it lasted for 2-3 sec only.  Unlike "charlie horse" which I can pin point the muscle and rub it... it felt like a cranked up Physio electric simulator machine with high current sending though my leg.  It used to attack me once a day or once every 2nd day only... but since yesterday, it has been shocking me much more.

3-4 times yesterday. And this morning 3 times already. 

I am worried, is this the end of my vertical training adventure started since 2006? 

I had already visit a General Doctor this morning, which he admit he have no idea what is going on. 
A refer letter is given to me for a visit to an orthopedic bone doctor who I will be visit in a few hours.

could it be the excessive Hang Clean I am doing? the continuous 1 rep max attempt in dead-lift & squat?
or the Skip Lunch & drink milk trying to lose weight get lean practice..
or the continuous bad sleeping pattern with me waking up at 3-4 am everyday for no reason...

I don know... I just know that i want to at least slam-dunk before I have to put an end to this long journey..


if any one have any experience or suggestion, please let me know.

I've had it much worse than you... it could be a bunch of things: irritated SI joint or a piriformis mini-rupture or inflammation etc.

If it doesn't go below the knee it should be a hernia.

Sometimes if you have a rupture muscle you don't know about and that inflammation inflames the sciatic nerve as well, then you might get this. At least that's what I believe.

I thought this post was by Raptor, because i remember talking about having electric shocks on his shin from the rubbing of the bar during the deadlifting.

this happens mostly from compressed nerve, when people squat wide grip, the bar doesn't rest on the traps but above it and that compresses the nerve on the shoulders and people have experience shock from this also.

i used to carry a large bag to school and that compressed the nerve on my shoulders so i rarely now but used to get shocks on my shoulders.

its probably best if you go and see and neurologist, to detect for nerve compression or trapped nerve in that area.

get well soon

Got an x-ray and the orthopedic  doctor said, my L5 on my lower spine is a little close, but not serious, so an MRI is not required.
He suggested me to go physio and do some exercise.

The end day I went to physio, and 10 yoga poses are suggested.
1 Lie on back, bend knee, Turn L and R
2 Lie on back, Hug leg, push knee toward chest
3 Lie on back, Push Hip to sky (hip thrust), Extend 1 leg up, than the other
4 Lie on back, one leg extend, other leg bend and rotate to the opposite side, arm on Bend leg side hold on to bed (Twist of lower back)
5 Child pose, Child Pose with hand extend to left, and right
6 Cat Pose
7 Table Top Balance Pose (arm and opposite leg extended)
8 Snake Pose

Did it in the clinic, and shock attacked seems to be gone for the rest of the day.

Did it again the next day, and shock attacked never came back.

Lunch basket Jump training with no pain, and I seems to be getting constantly on the high side. So it is good.

I now Put a Big Tin Can on my back while sitting in office.  Crossing my finger!
