Felt like electric current through chest, arms, vibrating muscles. Why its happening?

Hi. 31 yo M. I work in an office and exercise regularly. It happened last week, that strange feeling of like electric current or something, running through my chest and arms. My muscles are vibrating, sometimes shaking. I have no longer that smooth muscle motion. Don`t know what to do? Should I rest? Why is this happening?

Hello, as you are an office worker you might have developed cervical spondylitis with peripheral nerve root irritation which caused the electric current sensation and the same is reason for weakness in muscle as a result you are experiencing vibration (fasciculations) and shaking. You should have a clinical check up and will require a basic cervical spine x-ray and might be nerve conduction velocity study. If all ok, you might get relieved on conservative treatment. Thank you.
