electric shock

Hi
I dont know how to explain this, but just before i go to sleep, I get this strange feeling down my left hand side (arm and Leg) like an electric shock. My arm feels funny after this although it only happens for seconds. I have migraine and get the numb arm and spots in the eye i do take tabs for this condition Pizotifen. I dont know if this is related, but i dont think it is. This is really worrying me that it is a warning for a stroke.
