I get an electrical type tingling in my back along my spine. It happens mostly when I stand to for long periods. But I'm sitting at the computer and it's doing it now. If I don't sit it gets very painful I go in the walk in cooler at work. Or outside in winter and if I place my back against something cold in the cooler it starts going away. This started about 7 years ago. At the same time I started getting muscle twitches with my left thumb, right eye, right shoulder blade, calf muscles and chest. I never get the twitches all at the same time. On one area at a time and it generally goes on for several minutes in spurts of several days to a couple weeks. Then starts up somewhere else. Eye lids are the most common. Also occasionally my vision will lock up? Again right eye mostly. It just stops focusing. Sometimes blinking a lot will make it stop. Other times if I rub it. Otherwise I just have to wait for it to start working again.

  • It could be many things. I would have a doctor check it out.
