Follow-up To "Neuropathy Suddenly"
Dec 14, 2010

I know you often ask for input from readers. The questioner said he was having pains down his leg and into his foot. At first, I thought maybe this could be a back problem, because I've had those shooting pains down my leg due to disc problems. I also thought about the Zoloft. I remember when I was on that med, I would often have muscle twitches. I mainly got them around my eye--causing the muscles around my eye to twitch. With Zoloft and other depression meds, I would also get these strange electrical pulse type symptoms that would shoot throughout by body. I've heard others describe that feeling, but they said it usually happened if they missed doses or stopped cold-turkey.

Just thought I'd throw that out there. Of course, it could be something else.
