what in the world could that be?? i get this "Quivering"
in the bottom of my right foot.......i dont know how else to explain it!!!! could thid be related to my neck? Leslie


  • Does your foot tremor, or is it just a feeling? If there is an actual tremor, this is called clonus (I think), and it definitely could be caused from your neck.

    If it just feels like it is quivering, this is also something that could be directly related to your neck. I get it too. My symptoms have varied from strong shock type sensations to bee stings to prickles, to now just a feeling like a cat is purring or something like that. doesn't hurt at this point, unless one of those lovely hot bee stings hits, but it sure is annoying. Be sure to report this to your doctor, and keep track of any changes in intensity or frequency.

  • I have been describing the feeling in my foot as a phone vibrating but you are right it feels like a cat purring. Thank you that will make it so much easier to explain to the Ortho/neuro. My foot has been purring for about 36 hours straight. I would think she would be tired.

  • I get those weird feelings in both my feet, but worse on the left one. Alot of the time it's so strong that I can look at the bottom of my foot and actually see movement under the skin- like a tendon is pulsing through my arch. Ever see anything like that?

  • I forgot to mention that my L5S1 disc is herniated to the left side. I'm over the back pain, but I still have this weird vibrating and throbbing in the bottom of my foot. I thought it might be tarsal tunnel sydrome in my ankles, but all the electrical studies were negative. The Dr. said though, that all they show is whether or not you have permanent damage to the nerves in the foot, but they don't rule out that tarsal tunnel is actually occuring. I'm supposed to have an MRI with and without contrast of my feet and ankles to look for anything else that might be wrong, but have hesitated from fear of the dye. He says there's a strong chance that my lower back discs are causing the problem. I'm curious to know if anyone else can see anything jumping around in the arches of their feet.
