Does Anyone Post DBS Surgery Have Extremely Sensitive "zinging" Feeling At The Wire Site Behind Ear And In Neck,almost Painfil Tingling?

Does Anyone Post DBS Surgery Have Extremely Sensitive "zinging" Feeling At The Wire Site Behind Ear And In Neck,almost Painfil Tingling?

Wire behind ear and side of neck, after four months feels like a live wire. I don't think it is nerve from scar. Rather an electric feeling. Perhaps this wire is too short? Thanks for any input.

Am finally going to go see the surgeon because the zinging and little shocks have gotten worse. Will let you know what he says. Thanks!

MD says it may go away. Or not. I looked into if it could be a "lead fracture". Doesn't seem so. Not sure. Will keep you posted.

Hi, Sterling. The zinging is a type of burning tingling pain perhaps. Like when you hit your funny bone (elbow) . Not as severe
. Constant, though, unless i move my neck in a certain way which would not be possible to hold for long. As you can see, It is hard to describe.

Might be a broken wire most likely in the neck area.
