I had a rather intense episode of Lhermitte's sign two nights ago, the first time I've experienced this. I'm now three months post rads and chemo. I was at the infamous Diamondback Grill, trying to (very slowly) eat my half order of bacon-cheddar cheeseburger with sweetpotato fries washed down with copious amounts of water and tea. Did I mention that the tables there are very small? Every time I looked straight down at my plate I got a power surge that started at my head, shot down my spine, tickled my knees, and then exploded out the soles of my feet. ZZZZZZAAAAPPPP! It was such a jolt that I would jump, and my kid would giggle. I felt like something from "Young Frankenstein" where the monster is shooting sparks and bolts of electricity. If I'd put a light bulb into my mouth, it would have lit up. Twelve hours later, I wasn't noticing it any more. Is anyone else having fun with this one?
