View Full Version : Vibration sensation in legs/Neuropathy?/Lupus?

11-04-2009, 03:22 PM
So I have recently noticed intermittently I get this really light vibrating sensation in my legs and I think its my cell phone vibrating but when I check my cell its not. Does anyone get this sensation? Can it be from peripheral neuropathy and/or Lupus? -Brittanee

Oh my God...I have it too!! I thought I was crazy the first few times it happened...No phone in my pocket. I get it in my feet too sometimes...glad I am not alone.:wacko:

oh girls, hold on, people are going to start wondering about you if you keep looking for a phone that is not there. ha ha ha .........I am constantly amazed at the many twerks that we share with each other. (i don't think twerk is a word)

Me too. I get it all the time. It is so anoying. I call it it buzzing. I am not sure what it is, but I do like to find out.


BTW twerk is a perfectly good word, but only makes sense to lupies.

I just got my skin biopsied on my left leg in 3 places monday for the small nerve fiber peripheral neuropathy. I will have the results in a few weeks but the woman who did the testing said my symptoms are typical of that type of neuropathy so I really think its whats going on. Im on neurontin 300mg once a day but its not helping a whole lot. I hope you guys get some answers. I also have an appt with a new neuro the 25th of this month so I will def mention it and see what he says :) Good luck to you all!

Hi y'all,
I've had buzzing in my left hand for a week or so now... I love this site because it sure does help you feel human to see so many others with similar issues!! :wacko:
You are all a blessing to me,

I have buzzing/tingling down my left leg. It comes and goes. It doesn't hurt and that makes it less of a concern for me. I also have major areas of numbness too.

In my upper thigh I first felt a sensation like there was hot air blowing on my leg - then tingles - like little pin pricks. It has been over six months and now the surface of my leg is kinda numb. I googled and read about how it could be a pinched nerve, loose weight, etc. Although I can certainly go on about my life - would just like to know if causing some sort of damage. I still don't know what is causing it, but knowing there are others out there is somewhat comforting.

I thought it was just me!

I've had neuropathy in my right leg for a long time. It also happens occasionally in the other leg and in my arms. I had a muscle biopsy in Houston over a year ago. I was surprised that they took the muscle sample from my arm, rather than the leg which gives me the most trouble. The docs didn't seem too impressed by the results, so nothing ever came of it. I think that those docs were looking for some specific things, which they didn't find. The problem for me is that they never gave me any real answers about my neuropathy.

I get the buzzing sensation in the upper prtion of my body mostly up and down my arms but I think mine might be more from my Disc herniaton in my neck I have herniations from c3-c7.

Oh me too!

It started a few weeks ago. A buzzing like there is something, like a fan, running in the floor beneath me. I ignored it at first, but, now it's happening more and more frequently and noticeably. It's annoying more than anything else.

I was having this vibration sensation for about 4-8 months, I don't remember exactly how many but it seemed like a long time. It was mostly my legs, at first from time to time, then all the time. It was getting worse and most of my other symptoms too. I got rid of it, thank god, and I can,t believe it is so simple. When I went to my rheumatologist 3 months ago I told him about this scary vibration sensations, he almost jumped from joy and said that all of his lupus patients report having it and asked if he can touch my muscle to see if it is vibrating in reality. What a jerk! I already wrote in another post about this appointment. Anyway it turned out that I am severly Vitamin D defficient, I am taking Vit D3 for 3 months now(7000 IU a day) and I got rid of most of my "lupus" symptoms, including the vibration sensation, muscle twiches, muscle cramps, headache, tingling in my arms and legs, unexplained muscle and bone pain, shooting nerve pain in my legs and arms, feeling like someone is spilling hot tea over my legs, I have more energy, I sleep better, I don,t wake up to go to the restroom at knight anymore. All the symptoms that i though are because of neuropathy are gone. It was just a vitamin D defficiency.
Now I have my lreal upus symptoms left only.
I don't know how to tell this guy politely that his patients have Vit D3 defficiency, that is WHY they are vibrating.
I hope I could help you and the cause is like mine and not lupus.

Unfortunately my vit D levels have been good because of my daily vitamin I take everyday...so this for me is not the answer :/ I am waiting on more specific vit results though..b12,thiamine,vit k and something else....gah.

Good that you are testing all the other vitamins too.
Why don't you test the D also just in case? When I did the blood test I was already taking D3 2000 IU daily. I was still very defficient and I had the symptoms. They disappeared with much higher dosage. Dosage is really important.

I have the same issue in my arms and legs (sometimes in my left cheek too). I feel like I am going CRAZY sometimes with this.

12-12-2009, 08:35 PM
I've been on mega-doses of vitamin D for two months. It has done a lot for giving me more energy, but not a thing for the neuropathy.

I wonder if the twitching in my eyes is related as well. I have one eye that will twitch, I guess more of a spasm, in the upper eyelid. Its just this intermittent twitch that, after a few hours will drive me crazy. There is no rhyme or reason to it.
