Constant buzzing/vibrating sensation in left leg

MrTMMrT Posts: 1
Hello All,

So for about a month now I've noticed a non-stop buzzing/vibrating feeling in my left leg. No pain, just vibrating. This vibrating is not intermittent. When I'm laying in bed it feels like there's an earthquake. I know several people have posted about this exact same condition before, but no one ever seems to come back with a diagnosis or to say that it went away.

I'm getting quite worried about this now. I have a brain MRI scheduled for tomorrow with my nuerologist so I'll keep you all updated on my status but I'd love to hear from anyone else who has/had this condition who actually has figured out a legitimate reason for this.

  • Hi
    Welcome there are great people here and lots of information
    maybe researching we can both get some information on this.
    Mine just started a few weeks ago and I thought it was my cell phone
    against my leg. It does not last long and is not painful like you say plus
    it does not last long at all. I have other nerve issues so I thought it was just
    part of that. How about you do you have any other nerve stuff.
    So does your Doctor think it is due to an issue in the brain? I bet you are
    worried, please post when you find out something alright.
    I am going to do some reading and if I come across anything that relates
    to this I will post it here alright.
    Sure wish I could be of some help, hopefully you get some answers.
    Take care
  • Did you ever get an answer from the cause?

    Hi MrT,

    I've been having that sensation in my left leg, increasingly, for the past couple months (although I also get pain and cramping in lower leg).

    I have a ruptured disc, si joint dysfunction/disorder, and ddd. I'm pretty sure it is one of those causing it. Pretty sure it's not my brain, if that is any relief. 

    Are you aware of any disc problems?

    I hope you get answers very soon. Until then, take care of yourself and try not to worry too much.

    Sara :)
