Internal Vibrations : Am I going insane?



  • I'm sure i answered a post on this subject not to long ago.I also have vibrations of my nerves.I'm sure its due to the lesion on my spinal cord.It started quite a long time ago when my neck first started to bother me badly, about six years ago.I had the vibration everywhere from my brain right down to my feet.It was horrible,i felt like my brain was constantly being shook.I kept telling all my doctor but they never responded to it ,until i told my one neurologist she did a test on my nerves and put in her report that i had hyper nerves.No one ever did anything for it,but it slowly got better,i think for a while no one would beleive what i was feeling not even my family but every once in a while i'd have a child come and lay beside me and they'd ask me why i was shaking so badly and i'd tell them that i wasn't shaking it was the vibrating in my nerves.My husband said the same thing when he's lay beside me and hug me.Why are you shaking.My son touch my foot the one day and told me that the nerves in my foot were going nuts. LOL =)) Well like i said no one wanted to be bothered trying to get rid of it and to this day i still have some vibrations from my waist down.The rest of my body seems to have stopped but i still have it in my legs and feet.Your definitely not alone and it really sucks to have it but i have no idea how to get rid of it or i'd share the secret. :))(
  • :jawdrop: I thought that the floorboards in my house were loose, my air conditioner was faulty, the fridge was on the fritz.. little did I know that it was me! I has epidural scar tissue strangling my L4-5 L5 S1 and this vibration thing seemed to start after they tried a neuro stimulator trial and it only made me hurt worse. I am trying to get Doctors to help me but they just seem to want to give me drugs and tell me to go away..I do not want to take high doses of Methadone or Morphine for the rest of my life.. I am only 39 years old! Any advice on trying to get them to listen would be great.

  • I am fused with bone plugs from L4 L5 and S1 and told I have failed back surgery syndrome have to use a walker and cane to get around and fall alot. Diabled Army vet and not sure what to do..
  • I was contracted with RSD in 2005 from a neurectomy in my left leg. In May 2012 I had a Spinal Column Stimulator implanted which improved my symptoms. In November while reclining in my LaZBoy I noticed a mild vibration in my spine and thought it was just a symptom of the stimulator. By December the vibration was extremely strong in the core of my body. I described it as putting your hands on the counter while the dishwasher was running, or lying on a vibrating bed on max but all internally. Its was so strong it made me nauseous and i vomited 7x over a 3 hour period. Its seems to get strongest after sitting for a period of time and i would have to pace around until the energy had an outlet. When its in my chest my heart flutters like a reel to reel movie that has run out. My blood pressure is getting higher and higher and they cant take it with an auto reader, it has to be done manually. At its strongest It then progresses to Parkinson like tremors on my right arm, lower legs and feet, and head and I have numbness in my face and head. I turned off the Spinal Column Stimulator, had an MRI of my back and the ER performed a head CatScan, all negative.The ER didnt know what was causing my symptoms and just gave me morphine for the pain associated with the RSD and nausea medicine and told me to follow up with a neurologist. My pain management doctor assures me the Spinal Column Stimulator is not the cause but if i do elect to remove it I will never be able to install a new one if the problem resolves itself by some other means. My primary physician is leaving the desision up to me. He has prescribed Namenda to calm the nerves and Klonopin for antiseizures. I am trying to get referred to Barrows Neurological Institute. I will keep you posted with any new developments or diagnosis.
    Peace and Light,

    I've been reading everyone's comments and concerns. I have also been expeierencing the vibrations for many months. It started with the hip, then moved on to the whole body. I have diagnosed my own problem on my own because the lack of compassion and knowledge of my previous doctors. I literally had to do my own research of every single symptom I was having. I'm not stating everyone has the same issues as me, but definently something to look into for yourselves. I will put them in categories of symptoms and misdiagnosis. The last category is the best, the real source of the problem.

    Numbness in right side of face, lack of taste of food, lack of sense of smell, swollen neck(periodically), pins and needles sensation in both feet, migraines, vertigo, fatigue, brain fog, conginative problems (memory block), back of the eye pain, vision problems, dizzy, walking as if drunk, weakness in legs and arms, hearing loss, chest pains, hard to breath properly, digestive issues, IBS, leg jerking, body vibrations, anxiety, depression, irritable, lower back pain, lack of coordination, hand writing changed, numbness in the right thumb and right arm.
    CT scan, MRI, lumbar puncture, neck and body X-ray.
    Severe B12 deficiency, depression, and the big whopper after the ruled all of those out they diagnosed me with Multiple Scrosis.
    I did not feel right about the MS diagnosis. We are a spiritual family and the good Lord told us NO I did not have MS. I trust faith. If my family wasn't spiritual as they are I would be taking injections of unnessisary medications in my stomach daily.
    After trying every vitamin from probiotics, B12, and cutting gluten out of my diet and without any changes. I did more research, research, research, and more research. I crossed an image that shows which nerve cause facial numbness, it showed the trimgerl nerve that connects from the steam of the brain, all the way down my spinal cord. I said, "Thank You Jesus"! I scheduled an appointment with a CHIROPRACTOR the very next morning. The X-ray showed my neck being to far forward by almost 3 inches. Every single problem is was experiencing was due to my neck hitting nerves on my spinal cord. The day after one visit, relieved a lot of my issues. I have a long journey ahead to get my neck and spine corrected. However, this has lifted my spirit. The only thing I suggest is visit a chiropractor to eliminate possible neck or spine issues that can be corrected, and hopefully not to take unnessisary medications or procedures. My treatment with the chiropractor will last about 10 months with 3 times a week visits. Then proper every two weeks or once a month maintenance after that. I feel very blessed to know my issues can be reversed, instead of a disease without a cure.
    I hope my post helps all of you and future people. YES, PLEASE see a chiropractor before any dramatic decisions. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!

  • I'm 28 and my body from head to toes feels like I have a phone on vibrate and never stops this has been going on since 2009 I thought I was crazy but as yrs pass it's gets stronger to we're u can see it but if u touch me u feel it this is starting to get a lil scary be cuz it is so bad I wind up not sleeping in tell I finally pass out from exhaustion after 4 days and only get 3or 4 hrs sleep be cuz it is so strong it wakes me up I can't keep going through this my body is getting so weak from it cuz I can't sleep I have gone to doc ran test on litarily everything EKG MRI cat scan no luck
  • Weeks after injuring neck i reported with visual fasiculations in mid/lower back, phone vibrating feeling over legs and parts of body, and many other symptoms. The one thing they cannot place is the pulsing feeling from my brain to my toes, it does it so much my muscles are often very sore when it dies down as if they were constantly contracting. I now have multiple spasms and have had a myriad of symtpoms. My best guess is its to do with cervical spine.
    LindaM, congrats on finding issue, I will caution about some of the promises they make and the 10 months time period, a good one will go based off what he finds and what is working. Thats often how they make the profit, locking you in and then doing maintence work. But if its working and you believe in its results thats all that matters, just keep an eye out if its not working long term and they keep asking for money.

    okay i don't get it. i have had cervical c2 to t1 & t2, also lower lumbar fusion l4 - l5 and every single night when my wife goes to bed here i sit in my recliner vibrating from deep in my lower back, pelvic area. it's not that i can't lay down in bed with her but i will only keep her up all night. happens with more intensity when i'm tired but nearly vibrates 24/7. like others i get zero sleep most nights until enough time has gone by, usually 3-4 days and then out of total exhaustion i sleep for a few hours straight.

    with so many of us experiencing the same thing do no ns's or other specialists read our posts. i have had ct, mri, emg everything but a crazy person with a chicken foot chanting over me and no one has a clue. why do these so called award winning surgeons have no answers? my surgeries were performed through the( edited to remove facility name) i'm now looking at starting the entire testing process over at( edited to remove facility name) to try and get some answers. i am not quite 2years out from my cervical which was done first after we were rear ended on the freeway and just about 14 months past the lower lumbar fusion. if surgeons can dissect and repair arteries and things much smaller why do they have no clue about something evidentially common among back surgery patients. we deserve straight answers or dedicated dr's who will look into this until they do find the cause. it was caused by my surgery as i did not have the issue prior to my first surgery. thanks to the insurance bs i had plenty of time between the accident and the first surgery so i damn well know i did not vibrate before??????

    Has anyone checked for low frequency or infrasonic environmental noise? Sources such as generators, HVAC, Hot tubs, etc. Low frequency noise can have the effects described here. The problem is measuring it because the tools required are expensive
  • I get this, it's like a cell phone that is on vibrate. I feel it in my right foot, my right thigh, by butt & pelvic area. Everytime, I feel it in my butt, I immediately assume that I have left my phone in my back pocket and instinctively reach back for it, even though I will see it laying on the bar, coffee table or my couch. I never felt it before all this spine stuff began.

    I personally think that having spinal injuries/pain makes each of us special and it is aliens trying to reach out to us, *buzzzz buzzzz*
