I have been asking my doctors for quite sometime now about something that has been happening with my body. Please do not laugh! I am not making this up.

My body at times will vibrate or hum for lack of better explanation. I only notice it if I am sitting or lying in bed. It is very disconcerting especially since no one has an answer. Could it simply be the nerves vibrating at a higher frequency? It is not something that happens all the time, but I would feel a lot better if there was some kind of explanation.

Thanks,
Violet

I always get a strange vibration/thrum before I have a panic attack. Kinda like my organs are on vibrate mode lol Obviously, yours isnt related to a panic attack because you would have noticed that. I guess it could be your nerves, since they are already over-active.

I get a sensation like I am leaning against a washing machine that's on the spin cycle.  Yes...it's very disconcerting and I was told it was anxiety.

I don't feel anxious or stressed. I can be relaxing and feel the vibrations in my arms and legs. I tell my husband I know it sounds crazy, but it feels like the hum in the stabilizing cables on the electrical poles.

As a 'crazy side question', Those of us that feel this vibration, do you have trouble wearing wris***ches? My husband, since becoming disabled sometimes complains of the vibrations. He quit wearing watches because they stop. My oldest can't wear a watch because she has always made the round dials run backwards and just breaks a digital. I quit wear a watch because after all this started, I was reacting to the base metal.

Hi, Voilet, and welcome!  I'm so glad you found us and joined in.  Oh, yes.  It's like sitting on a buzzer for me.  I also get feelings like water is running down my leg or bugs walking along my arm.  You will learn to ignore it.
 
Be sure to read Fibro 101...the second thread on the forum.  There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot there.  Good starting links are called Symptoms, What Else Could It Be, and A Thorough Explanation of Fibromyalgia.  You just might see yourself there.
 
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.  Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you.  Hope to hear more from  you soon.

Violet, I think that my phone is in my pants pocket and is on vibrate instead of ring. The thing is, my phone is not in my pocket.

I just ignore it now. Sometimes I feel like we are having a small earthquake but we are not. I guess it is me shaking. idea

OMG, puppylove.....That happens to me ALL the time, and I also can not wear watches any more, because the hands move around. I have had fibro since the 80's. It was diagnosed interesting enough while I was on a cruise with my husband. I spent 4 days in bed, feeling like a truck hit me. The doctor on ship was from Sweden, and he proceeded to ask me if I was experiencing a whole list of things (all the things that my regular doctor said was in my mind, at that time). He said that they had been treating women in Sweden for years for fibromyalgia. He wrote an extensive letter to my US doctor and it was from then that my doctor stopped telling me that it was all in my head.

Wow Violet! That is an amazing story! I'm glad you shared it sometimes I think of us with fibro as having horrible luck or some kind of black cloud over us,but that's pretty amazing. I'm glad you got a good diagnosis at last. I was pretty lucky in a way with mine too. I can't say enough good things about my dr he knew long before I or anyone else suspected it and was prepared and brave enough to help me with the diagnosis.

I have the same thing.. I feel it in my left foot most of the time.. It's like a motor running some where and you feel the vibration from it.. I have had this for some time now .. it is very annoying !!  Sometime i even get it in my rump !!  very odd indeed !! Fibro is a very strange and confusing disorder !!  I hope you get to feeling better !!  Hang in there your not alone in this battle !! even if it does feel like it sometimes !!  :)

Interesting about the wris***ches. I cannot wear a normal watch, as it always stops running. My brother (who also has fibro) has the same issue.

The gentleman bought me an Eco-drive watch years ago, and it the only wris***ch I have been able to use.

And, yes, vibrations, especially in my pelvis and legs, when trying to relax. Oh, dear, that sounds vaguely dirty.

Yes! I get this. At night it does feel like light earthquake tremors, I have even asked my husband if he felt it. I told my md it feels like a hum, or sorta like a high powered electric line hum, if that makes sense lol. But I know what you feel like, I am not at all nervous or feel anxiety, just feels as though your nerves have alot of "energy"

I get this too! Everyone thinks I am crazy. I am so glad I found this forum. I feel it in a couple of different ways. Usually I feel like I am rocking back and forth like there is an earthquake. But lately I have also been feeling like a vibration in different muscles like someone pushed a button. I am usually at rest when it happens and totally relaxed.

Hi, everyone, I'm new here.  I'm sure I have fibromyalgia after doing some reading on this site and others.  I already see a rheumatologist for rheumatoid arthritis, and I will be seeing her next Monday for what I suspect is fibromyalgia. 
 
Anyway, I get this "body humming", too, and I notice it at night...I live near a highway, and for awhile, I thought it must be big trucks going by at night that were shaking the ground...it's so weird!
 
I'm so glad to have found this forum...it's explained so many things that I thought were "just me".  I was starting to feel like I was losing it!

This is interesting about the watches. My oldest actually made a watch run backwards once. I had to quit wearing my watch as well because it quit. I wonder if this has anything to do with the vibrations we feel?

Hello - I've been reading some of the posts re vibrations, fibromyalgia and Lyme Disease.  I'm Australian, but in 1996 we were living in the US.  I began to feel like an 80 year old (I was in my late 30s) and had tests for Lyme Disease which came up negative. My husband also had Lyme Disease, but with all the symptoms and a positive blood test.  We were about to return to Australia, but I still felt bad, and I knew if I did have a false negative and it was Lyme I'd have great trouble dealing with it in Australia, as virtually no one would have heard of it.  I went back to the doctor and asked for the antibiotics, which he gave me.  I took them for 4 weeks and then one morning I woke up and knew I was better.  For some time after that I would have hip discomfort on standing for long periods, but eventually that went away.  18 months ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and I've wondered if there was a connection, but recently I've started having the vibrations that people mention here (do you get used to them?!  I hope they disappear - they're not great!).  I asked the doctor who said he thought it was probably the medication I'm on.  I'm going to ask him for more details.  It kind of freaks me out that I may still have active Lyme Disease, though - is that likely after 4 weeks of antibiotics, and would there be such a long period before any real symptoms showed up? I'd had some muscular pain issues about 6 years ago but they went away for a few years, too. I'd appreciate people's opinions!  There's still dispute as to whether Lyme Disease even exists in Australia - a man in NSW died a while back and his wife believes it was Lyme Disease, but that's the only reference to it that I've ever heard here.  I had a general blood test quite a few years ago and that indicated that I'd had Lyme Disease. 
Thanks for your help!

Violet,

I also feel the humming sensation sometimes. Isn't it curious you only feel this in bed? I posted a thread a couple days ago about being around electrical appliances and fibro. Maybe this has something to do with why you only feel this sensation in bed.
 
The thread was called melatonin and fibromyalgia and electricity.

I have written about this on other threads here and in the menopause board.  I have had this internal vibrations for about a year.  I have told my doctor about it.  I feel it in my right leg, foot and head.  The head part scares me the most.  My doctor first thought it was my blood pressure so he put me on medicine but the vibrations did not stop.  Now he is checking my thyroid.  He also said it could be the hormonal imbalance due to menopause so I am using bio-identical progesterone.  Anxiety just might be the reason because when I take a xanax, the vibrations  calms down.  Originally I had thought it was the tractor trailers flying by my house all hours of the night but that was not the cause. I usually only notice it at night when I am trying to sleep, but today I have anxiety from the impending superstorm on the east coast and my right leg and head are vibrating as I type this.

Googling vibration symptoms and neuropathy brought me to this past healing well.com thread:

http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=29&m=1634233

I know I have nerve damage from a couple injuries. Do any of you think you might have nerve damage?

I noticed one poster in that thread said that they trip easy....I have tripped so much through my life. During college I was constantly stepping wrong and spraining my ankles or hurting myself.

Very interesting thread....

Well, I am diabetic, and I know I have some peripheral neuropathy going on--mainly in my feet and lower legs, but when I get the vibration sensations, it's over most of my body, and it only happens (or is only noticible) when I'm lying in bed.
 
It comes and goes, and like sawa said in an earlier post, I thought it was the semi-trucks driving by my house!  One time when I was experiencing it, I got out of bed to check, but no traffic...got back in bed, and it started again.  I reached out to feel the bed, as it was kind of freaking me out, and the bed was totally still...that's when I figured out it was me! 
 
I was so relieved when I saw people posting here saying they had the same thing.  Interesting about the "tripping" angle, too--I've always been a klutz that way, but have had rheumatoid arthritis since my twenties, and it affects my feet, so I chalked it up to that, but maybe there's more to it.  Interesting stuff!

I get the vibrations occasionally while in bed. I used to think I could feel the earth's hum. Sounds crazy I know but I just needed to identify it as SOMETHING. rolleyes

It doesn't sound crazy at all--it's human to want explanations for things that we experience.  As a matter of fact, I like your idea better!  tongue

I get it in my chest and arms worse. It scares me because it is so strong. I also get the creepy crawlies, and such. I am glad I ran across this thread. It is such a comfort to see so many others with this. Now I can just chalk it up to fibro. I was worried that it ment I had heart problems or multiple sclerosis.

And no, I am not prone to anxiety/panic attacks

about watches ... I cant wear them either. They stop working shortly after I do.

SimplyUs,

The creepy crawly feeling, are you talking about the itching that can come with nerve damage? Mine started in my back years ago, now it's in my arms and legs too. It feels like healing sunburn.
