I am paralised (T5) and noises trigger this electric shock type pain all through my body. The noises are shrill noises such as cutlery on a plate or drpped items on solid floors or even newspaper or magazines being flipped over someone coughing or sneezing and doors slamming and bins closing etc. I dont know if this is neuropathic pain but i read somewnere that pain can be apparent as an electric shock type pain which fits the bill exactly. When i search for noise hypersensitivity i get pages of hearing defect type answers but this isnt relavet in my case.
The pain gets increasingly werse as the day goes on untill even someone crunching a sweet can trigger a shock through my body. I am in hospital at the moment and dont know how I am going to get through it with all the noises going on particularly as its going to be a long stay of 6 months or so.
Does anyone else experience anything like this?
I dont know if its exclusive to paralised peaple either as i have searched and searched but cannot find anyone with the same trigger and symptoms.
For those of you that do suffer electric shock type symtems can it be relieved in anyway?
and does it sound like a neuropathic type problem?
Thanks in advance.
