What causes electric shock sensation on my face?

Hi. I periodically (maybe once every 6-8 weeks, I guess) get the sensation of small electric shocks over most of my face. This is usually accompanied by a rush of heat over my face and body, and sometimes a feeling of lightheadedness, almost like I could faint. Any ideas? Thank you.

History of any herpes infection over your face. Because your complain is like post herpetic neuralgia. After herpes zoster infection they develop this reaction. Better go for neuro consultation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
