Vibrations

I looked around a little before posting because I thought I remembered someone else having this issue before, but perhaps I was wrong...

Anyway, the last two days I have had a new sensation in my right foot. It feels as if a tuning fork is being held against the side of my foot (specifically near my heel). I know what this feels like, as do all of us, I'm sure, because I have all to frequently had a neurologist test my sensation by doing this.

Some more info. It doesn't hurt, it comes randomly, I generally feel it for about thirty seconds (from the onset of the sensation to when it slowly fades away-- it's EXACTLY as if there is a tuning fork being held against my foot... it slowly gets softer and less noticeable) and it's only in my right foot.

I'm not too concerned; as I said, it doesn't hurt. More than anything I am just curious if there is a name for this or what the cause of it is.

Thanks for any info that you may have!
-Tim

Vibrations, thats how my Neuro discribed it to me. I get them in my feet also on occasion. It just another neuropathic pain, altho it never pains me, it only lasts a minute or so.

I get it in my back/spine and in my face. Sometimes it feels like my teeth are vibrating .It only lasts a few minutes and feels very odd..But it seems everything about TM is odd. :)
Take Care, Theresa.

I call them vibrations also. I have them in random areas, but especially in my right foot. I refer to this as a cell phone ringing in my foot on Vibrate mode. (that's how I explained to the doc anyway)

Did your Md say anything about them? I'm assuming they are of no concern, but I just want to make sure...

Is it weird that, almost five years after my attack, I have just recently developed this "symptom"?

Orthy, I developed other Neuropathic pain (the burning pain) on my back, this prompted my Neuro to order another MRI which showed no further de-myelination and the original lesion had completely healed. The lumbar puncture I had also showed nothing untoward. I put these pains and weird crawley type feelings as a residual of the original attack.

Have a great day

yep, I have that buzzing feeling in my right thigh from time to time - I used to carry my cell phone in that pocket, but the buzzing was much like the phone in "vibrate mode" and it got frustrating; on the one hand, I couldn't often feel the phone buzz; on the other hand, I would feel that buzz, and it wasn't my phone.

othy,

I never got to see the MD at the ms clinic last time, I saw his physician asst.

She asked if I also get the vibration/shock down my spine when this happens & it doesn't always happen. I do get the shocks/vibes often when I bend my head/neck through my extremities & I saw in my doc's notes one time that I do have L'hermittes sign/syndrome. many MS patients have this, but at the same time you can get it from arthritis/radiculopathies in your spine.

I still think it's from the Tm though. I have to make another appt at the ms clinic, they had to cancel on me last time. For some reason they see me every 4 - 6 months, ms was never totally ruled out as I also have brain lesions.

I wouldn't worry about it though, maybe just bring it up at your next doc appt or schedule one sooner if it is really bothering you.

My "vibrations" are a little different. Even after 8 yrs I still have the weird vibration or buzz of Lehrmitte's that travels down my back and legs when bending my head down. I also get weird burning, numbness and tingling sensations in different areas of my legs (and which are always changing) as well as cramps in my feet.

The weirdest vibrations are the ones in my chest especially when it's been a while since I took some klonopin. It started when I had my TM espisode 8 yrs ago and it feels like all the tiny molecules in my chest are vibrating rapidly. No idea what that's about.

[color=#4080BF][color=#4080BF]Yes, I get cramping in my leg muscles, feet and toes; usually when I'm very relaxed sitting watching TV, on this here laptop, and sleeping. What do you guys take or do or whatever? STILL STANDING

The cramping is what I refer to as spasms. I take Baclofen for the spasms during the day. At night I also add Zanaflex.

I get this also. I jave had it since my first onset of TM in 2006 and it's much worse now since my last attack. It is exactly how you describe it though, like a tuning fork is being held against that area. Some days it's worse than others, but mostly only last a few seconds at most.
