Two of my kids,one boy age 13 and one girl age 9 get random shocks in their bodies everyday. The shocks go st.raight through their body from front to back. It does NOT run along a nerve. There can be just one or up to about 10 in a row. It can be so painful it makes them moan out load in pain or ones they barely feel. They last for just a second or two. The only place it does not happen is on their head.
My oldest son has seen a Cardiologist and a Neurologist where he had tons of tests done showing absolutely nothing. He had a MRI of the Brain, EEG, MRI of the Spine and EMG on the arm and leg. All of his blood work came back normal except the TSH said slight elevation of 5.69. The following are the tests that he did:
A & A, CBC blood count, CMP, Full Rate Count, Heavy Metal Screen, Lyme disease, Magnesium RA Factor, SED Rate, T3 total, T4 Free, T4 Total, TSH and Vitamin B12.
The only thing that I can see that these two children have in common that my other five do not have, is that they both often get nauseous, headaches and vomit when riding in a vehicle for longer than 20 minutes. My son has the sickle cell trait but my daughter does not. Any suggestions of further tests would be great.
Again these shocks go straight through their body from front to back. It does NOT run along a nerve. Everything I find on shocks run down the body. These never do that. They are always starting on the front side of the body and going out directly through the body, out the back. Ex. If it happened on the hand it would go out the palm. On the top of foot it goes out the bottom of the foot. On the chest, out the back directly behind it.

  • Does anything trigger these shocks?

  • A TSH of 5.69 is no longer considered a slight problem, especially among alternative doctors. Read the information about the new standard for TSH at the about.com website. For the younger child, thyroid blood tests are even more misleading. Read the book Hypothyroidism by Broada Barnes, MD. Get help from the Broda Barnes Foundation. Motion sickness suggests kindling in brain. This can be caused by irritation in the intestines. Enough thyroid will help the brain, the intestines and the nerves.
