I've Not Yet Been Dx With Ms,the Dr Wants To Wait To See If I Have Another Attack.i Was Just Dx With Fibro,but My Last Attack Lasted 9 Weeks With Alot Of Ms Symtoms,now I Only Have The Tingly Crawly Feeling,but Lately I've Also Experiencing What I Think Are Vibration Sensations,if Feels Like A Tuning Fork Under My Skin,top Of Foot And Legs.also Even Though It Is Extremely Hot And Humid Here I Sometimes Get This Shivering Cold Feeling In My Left Arm.
Was Hoping Someone Could Describe Their Vibration Feeling.just Something To Compare,my Last Mri Without Contrast Was Neg,but Ya I Know That Doesn't Mean Much.and Also Could These New Symtoms Be The Start Of Another Attack.
Thanks For Any Input
I have not been dxd, but have been experiencing ms symptoms and am awaiting Neurologist appt. I can definitely relate to the vibrating sensation, which I have felt in feet, legs, arms, hands, shoulders, head and face, and even, on one occasion, in my teeth! This was the most disturbing, and it seemed that when I spoke, the vibrations resonated in my head - very wierd! Sometimes the vibrations are brief, like someone pressing a buzzer; other times they are constant. If I had to describe them to anyone else, I'd be afraid they would think I was crazy. It helps me to know tht others are experiencing the same, and that I'm not losing my mind!
I've had a lot of experience with "vibrations" and my MS.
It can range greatly in degree and intensity. I find it helpful to rate it on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being just slightly tingly, humming and 10 being strong vibrations) as a way to quantify it for my doc. Sometimes it's not even what i would call humming/buzzing, but just an altered sensation that is different than what i feel in rest of body. Other times it can be pulsating, throbbing, really very unpleasant tho not painful. Along with these sensations i think there is a degree of numbness and inability to distinguish hot from cold in the affected areas.
A tuning fork that's been pinged is a very good way to describe the feelings at times in my legs, where the sensations would build up with each step i took, then gradually diminish when i stopped. It has been so severe in my legs that it interfered with walking becaus i felt i couldn't feel my feet and was afriad i'd lose my balance and fall.
When I started down this road, my main symptom was L'Hermittes. One of the frustrations was that it kept changing. At first it was the "electric shock" sensation down my spine when I bent my head forward, but at it's worst I had a constant, pulsing vibration in my lower spine. It was like a cat's purr living in my back.
