Shock down leg and chest


Q: Hi my name is zach im 22 years old and just recently christmas day 2011 to be exact i was sitting down and all the sudden my left shoulder had like a twitch or shock then the shock went down my left leg and also across my chest. this all happened in about 1 second then immediately after my face turned red and felt like my blood pressure went up. i have never experienced this before and in the last few weeks since christmas i have experienced it about 4 more times at random times. i work out but at the time the first two times occured i was not working out at all . also about a year and a half ago i pinched my sciatic nerve so have been having troubles with that since then but i dont feel like its connected since it felt so different, like i said it was just a quick shock down my leg and across chest. Any suggestions? Thanks Zach
