Electric Shock

After doing lunges as part of my pt program I feel something like an electric shock around my patellar tendon. Not painful, just like a mild shock. When I step then lift my leg, it happens when my leg starts to transition from heal to toe and then off the ground. before and when I lift my leg. If I exaggerate the heel strike I can pinpoint that it doesn't happen right at the heel strike, but every part after that until my foot leaves the ground. Not every step. And it seemed to start after doing the lunges and then tapered off to barely doing it at al hours later - now.

What's going on?

It has happened before, but the first time was a couple months ago. It's a relatively new thing, but since it has started, it seems to have become "normal." It even happened at work when I had to stand around for a couple hours - Not standing in one spot. I was free to move, but I was watching something which meant I wasn't out for a stroll.

Re: Electric Shock

Man, I don't know what's going on with you, but in my opinion you really should seek professional help as opposed to asking advice from strangers on the internet. You have numerous threads on this board complaining of very specific, very odd issues with your body.

In addition to this thread, here are 9 more threads you've started over the last several months complaining of various issues (all wfs)

If I recall correctly, no one here has been able to help you over the past year. However, you said in one of your threads that you found a doctor to help you. You also said this current malady happened during your PT program. My suggestion is that you talk to your PT about it, or ask your doctor.
Good luck.

Well my doctor and PT aren't as easy to get a quick answer from as internet people.

The doctor is 2000 miles away. Hoping for something within an afternoon's drive. For instance NYC. It's only the biggest and most important city in the country.

Easy, your knee is a piezoelectric. I suggest you contact Dean Cain, and get an episode of Ripley's Believe It or Not! to feature you ... The Electric Man! Might be some profit in it for you.

Or, since, as Sean said, you seem to be suffering from many issues, you could get some serious testing done by these guys.

Dude... Your cure can be found in a roll of Reynolds foil.
