For the past 6 months I have had this HORRIBLE internal vibrating feeling that is making me nuts. At first it was in my chest so I assumed it was heart related. Similar to charly horses. My cardio, also my internal for 10 years did an ekg, echo, 24 hr. holter, stress test and all were normal. I went to an endo who ran extensive blood work, all normal. I went to a neuro who sent me for mri of the brain, mra of the brain, thoracic and lumbar mri , eeg, emg, 48 hr eeg and all seemed somewhat normal except I had a tiny lesion in my cervical spine and an increased signal intensity in my cervical and thoracic spine. I went to see a great neurosurgeon who assured me I was fine and did not need any surgery. I went to physical therapy and accupunture. I have checked out every possible cause, thyroid, diabetis etc.
As months progressed it shifting to my stomach,like a forcefal heartbeat. This is not painful. Its simply nerve wracking. Its as if you swallowed a cell phone on vibrate and you just want it to shut off. I noticed its worse when I am tired. I rumble all night long. Sometimes it wakes me up and I have learned to flip over so it stops or to rock myself to sleep to ignore it. I now have High BP too after all this nonsense started. My heart rate can be 74 and jump to 120 without exertion. I am also perimenopausal , my periods come once every few months and I have read online its from hormonal fluctuations. My gyn took a bunch of blood work, all fine. I would believe that but I have done my research and men also experience this problem. I do not know anyone personally who feels what I feel. Everyone tells me i am nuts but have found many case histories online so I know I am not the only one. My doctors are baffled. I just want it to stop.
Sometimes its a few hours. Sometimes it comes and goes for days but lately its ALL the time. Its as if my body was having an internal seizure. You do not see anything on the outside. No shaking. No tremor but my husband has felt it at night as I sleep. He will ask me if I am shivering but I am not. I am trembling inside.
This all started after I took Cymbalta once. Wound up six for three days and then my doc suggesed Lexpro which I took years ago. Once dose did me in and I have been like this ever since.
Any ideas? Similar stories? Now its primarily in my upper back and neck.
Any imput? I just want this vibrating to end!
I am exhausted. Sometimes
