Two weeks ago I experienced something which sent me to the ER. I was sitting down and felt a wave of weakness run from my upper body down through my arms into my hands. It's like getting a mild electric shock. It's happened before but always passed within a few seconds. This time it caused my hands to tingle slightly, then a second wave hit and the feeling didn't go away. so I went to the ER. They tested my heart, fluids, and did a full blood test including heart gases. Everything was fine. Since that day I have had a few other days where I feel like the wave will hit, but it doesn't. Today, I have had a sensation in my arms and chest like restlessleg syndrome. It feels weak, like I could stretch it out, but exercise doesn't help. I found a website where others have had this feeling but no one knows what it could be. I just need a place to start-any help would be wonderful.
