Thank you for posting your query.

These symptoms could be related to focal (partial) sensory seizures.

In this condition, sensory symptoms (such as pain, tingling, vibration, electric shock like sensation, etc) travel from one part of the body to another. This is because of abnormal electrical impulses generated from the brain.

The left leg area is located in the right inner frontal part of brain. You should consult a neurologist for further evaluation.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,

My mom is 82 and has frequent feelings of an electric shock or severe pin pricks on her arms and sometimes her hips. She has stage 4 kidney disease and is sometimes dehydrated. She also takes 3 high blood pressure medications and tramadyl frequently. Could the feelings she s having be caused by dehydration or her medication? She is also become paranoid and it seems like she is having hallucinations at night. Other than that she thinks very clearly. I would appreciate knowing what type of doctor to take my mom to see and what you think might be wrong.
