What causes electrical shock sensations behind elbow and right side of head?
Short lived electrical shock like sensations occasionally are benign. They may be mainly related to two reasons at this age:
1) Neurodegeneration because of factors like axonal disconnection, wear and tear, nutritional deficiency.
You may have heard about multiple sclerosis, myelitis, cervical spondylosis trigeminal nerve injury online which are rare cases.
In such situations I generally would not subject the person to too much stress instead prescribe Vitamin B injections for a week along with Amitriptyline/Gabapentin.
You may get the following tests done as well after discussing with local physician.
Blood counts, Serum Vitamin B12 level, Hemoglobin.
I can clarify if you have any other thoughts, we can discuss here. Please let me know.
