Painful physical symptoms?

Does anyone else have painful physical symptoms that accompany their dp?

Other than my nose being clogged up 24/7 I have some other very bothersome symptoms in my body that aggravate my dp tenfold. If I lay down or sit for long periods of time, my neck and back will literally feel like they are on fire, and once i stand up I am struck with intense pain down my spine that radiates out to my ribs. This causes my dpd to flare up. Another bothersome symptom is neck stiffness. Sometimes my neck becomes so stiff I can't even turn my head side to side without intense discomfort. The scariest symptom I have though is an electric shock feeling in my head. It happens at random. I could be doing anything, watching tv, walking outside, talking to someone, and out of nowhere I get an intense painful almost instantaneous electric shock feeling in the left side of my head and it almost knocks me off my feet. It's very frightening, and I usually go into full blown panic after it happens.

It's just so hard to believe all that can be caused by dpd. I'm beginning to thibk I may be suffering with late stage Lyme, or maybe something else. 3 months before I got dpd from weed, I was on a camping trip and had been bitten by over 15 ticks or more.

Anyway, does anyone else have symptoms similar to this?

That could possibly explain alot. At around 3 times a month I will be jolted out of my sleep for no reason what so ever, and I'll have no clue where I am or what happened. I'll take your advice and try to get an EEG.
