Hello doctor,

I experienced goosebumps in one arm yesterday. I am scared that it was some kind of seizure. However, I did not experience any other symptoms after that.

Please help me find out what may be the issue.



Welcome to

I have read your query and understand your concern.

You had just one goosebumps episode without any symptoms, such as confusion after that. This does not indicate a major issue. I suggest you not worry about it unnecessarily and be careful if you have similar experiences.

I hope this helped you out.

Thanks and regards.
