Can you feel a mitochondrion?

I don't usually tweet health&fitness in the evening, but this is fascinating. – herpetic virus protein channels – Many people have latent herpetic virus infections. These channels could be the explanation for some annoying random pinprick sensations. Like you are just sitting there, and if feels like you got bit by a mosquito, but you look and there is no bug. Aberrant channels maybe. I think the sensation is caused by ruptured mitochondria, resulting from these aberrant open channels. I realized this tonight on a bicycle ride. Sudden mitochondrial depolarization should produce a pinprick or static shock sensation. If true, it is incredible that something so tiny should produce such an immediate and tangible effect. Just like when you rub your feet on the floor, and touch a piece of metal. Pins and needles.
