I was diagnosed with lupus about 10 years ago. From time to time I get a sensation throughout my entire body as if it is humming. It last sometimes for days. Makes it hard to get a good nights sleep. Could this be a symptom of lupus or perhaps something else?

What meds are you on?

Could you be eating or drinking less than usual? That sometimes makes the meds a bit stronger in relation to food intake.

This can also come from anxiety (which can be a side effect of prednisone, if you are taking it.)

Let us know how it goes.

In the past I have experienced the humming sort of feeling you are talking about before generally in relation to if I have missed a dose of my Effexor. But recently I have experienced it and and have not missed any medications, the humming is most intense in my head and upper body. I do have some small fiber/nerve issues caused by lupus and I'm thinking it may be related to that. I will be seeing my Rheumy in a couple of weeks, this issue is top on my list to discuss with him.

Hope you find some solution for yours as I know the annoyance you are feeling. Best of luck to you.

Fibromyalgia sometime causes that humming sensation.

That's really interesting. I have no answer for you but I CAN say that I experienced this for about a week straight around the time my husband got sick and stress was extra high. It almost felt like I was standing next to a subway whizzing by...but all the time, like even the ground was moving. I chalked it up to maybe some weird neuropathy and since I had an awful lot going on I kind of ignored it. It eventually stopped. Still don't really know why it happened.

I'm newly diagnosed, but the humming feeling throughout my body is something I've experienced off and on for quite some time. It's always worse at night and makes it very difficult to get a good nights sleep. I'm on no medications, so for me it's caused by something else.

This is an oncoming flare signal for me - at least I only seem to experience it when I am exhausted and stressed and is usually followed by flare symptoms. Most noticeable after waking in the morning, but it happens at night, too and it is hard to fall asleep when it sounds like your shoulder is humming. I figured it was muscle exhaustion or a neuro thing. None of my meds would be associative.

Have y'all ever tried taking a mild anxiety medication, like Xanax, to see if tht helps it? I start feeling funny sorta' like that sometimes, and Xanax (or a good steak) sometimes calms things down.

Makes sense, Lynnewood - the steak would add protein and Vit B's - which are good for muscles and nerves. I wonder about magnesium, too.
