This might just be me being weird. I’m wondering if anyone else has had this experience, or similar. Sometimes recently when I have a really strong emotional response to something I get a really odd physical sensation like a truncated shiver, but a bit more complicated than that. I have multiple spinal cord lesions and I’m wondering if this could be connected. The feeling starts with an emotion - positive or negative - then it progresses to a physical feeling like it wants to be a shiver running down my spine, but it can’t seem to go all the way down, so it spreads sideways into my back and sides and becomes almost painful.
Has anyone else experienced such a thing or do I sound like I’m wittering? I almost want to avoid strong emotions cos the feeling is quite unpleasant and borders on pain. Today when my partner gave me a close hug I felt like a response to our physical closeness and that was painful too and I suddenly became very conscious of the neuropathy in my legs. This is embarrassing a bit. I feel lately like I’m wired all wrong and what I hadn’t thought of before is how much your body and emotional and intimate life are all bound up together and how this might be affected too by lesions because they break up the nerve signals that would normally communicate all these feelings quite seamlessly.
I’m either saying something off the wall weird, or else something really obvious. I don’t know which!
