Hi all,

This may be totally unrelated to VM at all but I have noticed a pattern of being more static, that is, getting electric shocks through my fingers when I touch metal objects especially if I am having a relapse of my symptoms. Maybe a long shot but thought I’d mention it in case anyone has ever heard of a link…

Hi Matty, I have no idea if it’s related, but I have always seemed to be very susceptible to static shocks. I also get odd/intermittent feelings of minor internal ‘shocks’ in various bodily areas, including my head. Sounds odd, but it is the best description I can come up with. Sometimes my short ‘spins’ fall more into the ‘jolt’ category. I have wondered about a connection, but never seen any other references to it.

Interesting theory Matty - not sure if there is a connection, but I have always had static shocks even before I had MVBD. My husband thinks I am weird when I get a static shock from touching my car door!

I’m always giving my wife and others shocks as some say Migraine is due to increased electrical activity in the brain there may well be a relationship, who knows…


I get electric shocks as well, usually when I open or close the car door.
