Shock like impulse in the armpit. Weakness and dizziness. Reason?

I am experiencing a shock type impuse under the left back portion of my arm pit. It litterally feels like someone is shocking me with an electrical chord. I have had general weakness and dizziness for about 10 days now. The shocks and/or impulses are very painful. What could this possibly be and what should I do? Matthew Jones

Hello Matthew Jones
As per your history, you are having shock lke impulse feeling near armpit, the reason for this is maybe due to muscular spasm.

You should have EMG done of your left limb, and you are advised to take plenty of fluids, as there are many times its associated with electrolyte imbalance.
