Last night I felt like I had an electrical shock on my right side. From my hand all the way up to my right cheek. It didnt really hurt but it was something I've never had before Could it have been a mild stroke or maybe a silent heart attack?

no this is neither stroke nor heart attack. this is likely due to stretch / irritation of the nerve from wrong posture. heart attack and stroke doesnt present this way. stroke causes numbness, weakness, loss of power or slurred speech. heart attack doesnt effect right side. also causes nausea/ sweating just eat healthy, sleep in good posture.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
