I have never taken much medication let alone an Advil here and there my entire life. So definitely not a symptom caused by a medication change - in my particular situation. SSRI's defibitely has a lot of discussion and research to be had.

 

Agreed! I had these head shocks long before I ever tried an anti-depressant. Strangely, once I HAD tried and anti-depressant, and then got off of it... I DID get some head zaps, but they were completely different from the others I had before (the ones that prompted me to create this thread in the first place). I can easily tell the difference because they don't feel the same at all!

Come to think of it, I still do get some sort of a shocking feeling sometimes when I fall to sleep as well. Except to me it feels more like a knocking, almost as if someone was knocking on the inside of my head. It'll happen a lot with the HH.

I see this is an old post but i just had to reply as I think i know just exactly what you mean Wisher. Several years ago (not now) i kept getting what felt like a painless electrical current feeling going from one side of my head to the other near the front. It was a strange sensation. I was also getting periodic dizzy spells where i would physically hear a click in the centre of my brain and then would feel as if the room was tipping sideways. I never made much of it - don't know why although on one occasion the ambulance was called out after i phoned "out of hours" and they tested heart and blood pressure but all was fine. Eventually it stopped and i never experienced it or the dizziness again. I must add though that the electrical zinging did not occur at the same time as the dizziness but both were happening at different times in the same period. I have not yet been diagnosed with any sleep condition so do not know if it would be connected to one. You probs will never read my post...never mind.
