    Nerve Buzzing

    I'm at my wits end to say the least. I constantly (and by constantly I mean every minute of every day) feel like I stuck my finger in a socket. I have a buzzing sensation through my entire body but it is most obvious in my hands/arms and feet/legs. It gets a lot worse after eating and even more so (almost debilitating) if I have anything like caffeine. It also flares up at night when I wake out of a deep sleep. I haven't found anything to reduce it yet such as dietary supplements.

    It is getting to the point where I eat just because I have to. I am already weak enough which I think is related to the nerve issues and I get fatigued very easily.

    On a side note I have had digestive issues for a little over a year and a half now so I don't know if it is all related or not but the buzzing does flare up if I eat something that disagrees with me. I can't eat anything spicy or rich or it makes a hasty departure through the back door

    I have had my blood tested-everything normal, an emg and nerve conduction study - everything normal, sleep study-everything normal, tested my thyroid, for lyme disease, for heavy metal poisoning...etc etc everything normal.

    This is driving me absolutely batty. I am so tired of docs thinking I have anxiety that it is GIVING me anxiety. I can be laying in a hammock reading a book about kittens and I feel the buzzing. I have a busy life but nothing to stress me really, job is boring, we have good income, my kids are adorable and fun...I'm not anxious!! Yet I still have the feeling like I could have an anxiety attack any second. It's actually kind of amusing to test out how far I can push things. I can almost induce an anxiety attack if I do think about stressful things but then again I can turn it off again. I think my nerves are just irritated and therefore more prone to over stimulation. But what is causing it? I have cut out almost everything I can think of from my diet that is known to cause adverse reactions but that hasn't helped, I still feel the buzzing.

    Ok I will stop rambling. Any clue what this could be?

    Oh and I almost forgot, I have had so many MRIs of my head and spine I know my insides almost as well as my outsides! Everything...you guessed it...normal.

    I did have a Chiari Malformation surgery last year but I think it was for no reason now as most of my symptoms are still here but all my docs say my brain looks fantastic! yay...

    Re: Nerve Buzzing

    Kc,

    You may have multiple issues going on simultaneously (Hickam's dictum) or one etiology causing all of them (Occam's razor principle).

    I have to say, reading your post was like a trip down memory lane.
    "sticking finger in a socket" and lying on hammock reading a book on kittens?
    GI symptoms are common with lyme disease as well.

    Note: The conventional tests for lyme disease only have a 46-56% sensitivity and cannot be used to rule lyme out.
    A negative test does not mean that you do not have it.

    It's like flipping a coin.
    To be considered as a diagnostic tool, test sensitivity must be 95% or better.
    (to give you an idea, conventional HIV testing sensitivity is 99.5%).

    I STRONGLY suggest you pay a visit to the lyme board and ask for the name of a LLMD nearest to you. S/he'd be able to rule lyme in or out. There are other tick-borne diseases that can contribute to those sort of symptoms as well.

    A good LLMD or a good Integrative doctor will be able to address any adrenal or other issues you have going on as well. Conventional testing and diagnosis of thyroid disease misses components (i.e. thyroid antibody tests and clinical presentations are overlooked when TSH appears "normal").

    Since you seem to be into experiments of sorts, I'd suggest trying a low-carb diet to see how it affects your GI.

    Good luck.

    It is probably lyme disease. There is no perfect test for it, yet. They will try to blame it on a personality disorder because they don't know the cause. The reason they don't know is because there was a mistake with the lyme tests and treatment made years back and the people in charge of it refuse to acknowledge this. Hopefully this will change with the IOM Lyme conference a few days ago.

    You need to get a referal from lyme disease association dot org ASAP and go from there. You need to at consider all posibilities, but if you have tested for everything, it makes sense to consider a lyme specialist. It won't be covered by insurance, once again, because the IDSA refuses to acknowledge there is a problem with the tests and treatment, and since the insurance company goes by them, it will not be covered until that is corrected. < edited >

    Lyme bacteria cause these nerve symptoms.
