tooth sensitivity to acidic food (?)

YNMD, and I have an appointment with a dentist next week. until then, I am just hoping to find some information and calm myself down, because I freak out irrationally much about teeth stuff. I think one of my teeth is sensitive to acid food? but I am not sure, and I am not sure how to describe this to the new dentist.

my last cleaning and check up was at the end of last July, during which I got a clean bill of health.
in the last couple of months, one of my back teeth (either the last one or second to last one) has occasionally have this weird feeling. it's not pain-- but it feel like a little electric shock. the best I can describe is that it feel like when I suck my teeth really hard, but from inside. either way, it's not painful, just weird. It only happens when I am extremely sleep deprived. when I am exhausted, it some times just do that on its own, other times it follows when I drink coffee, or eat carbs and not brush my teeth right away and it turns acidic. when I am we'll rested it doesn't
t happen at all.
I won't see a dentist till next week, and either way ibis is a new dentist so I am really nervous. what might this weird kelectric shock feeling be? how should I describe it to the dentist? I brush twice a day and floss most days, but I have had a lot of dental problems when I was younger so now I am super paranoid.
