    O.K., this is a new one for me. I am getting these bizarre vibrating sensations in different parts of my body. It feels exactly like having my cell phone on vibrate function just under my skin in localized areas. I'm chalking up to the many weird symptoms of FMS, but I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

    Iv'e seen this referred to as a buzzing feeling on the GF boards. It's very common for gluten intolernance. I don't know if other chemicals could do the same, but I don't see why not.

    Have you been exposed to any new chemicals in the last day or so ?

    this has been a regular thing for me. Either all over my body or a small area such as an area of my back, top of my head or even my lips. I definitely experience it full body for no reason.
    Although, when i had my car detailed i drove it home. Within 10 minutes my face went numb. That was chemical exposure

    I have the exact same thing! I thought my cell phone was ringing four different times in a store today, but no it was just me.

    Mine seems to be coming from my lower abdomen. I found a thread on a different board about vibrations in the leg. It seemed many people had told their doctors, but none knew what it was. A lot of people had had mri's of the brain and back, but no cause was found.

    It must be a nerve going haywire? If I told my doctor every symptom I have she would think I have lost my mind!

    Hope yours goes away soon - it is annoying.

    and I'm constantly checking my cell phone.

    I get it mostly in my back and neck, and legs. It's when my purse is sitting on my lap that I think the cellphone is going off.

    I get it too! Typically, mine is in my leg and arm muscles. I told my doctor about it and he said it was most likely the FMS.

    i call it my internal tremor but, the buzz description is better...i will actually go to the mirror and look at my lips when they get that or look down at my hand to see if it is moving...UGH this DD!

    I get that too. It actually started in my foot after I broke it, and then it seemed to move around my body. Had it for about 6 months before getting sick with fibro.

    I am sure the twitching and buzzing is due to the nervous system problems we have with fibro.

    I get them everywhere as well. Especially the chest. Sometimes it feels as if the core of me is vibrating. Strange.

    I have the feeling my whole body is vibrating. I described mine as a motor humming in my body..

    Guess its another thing with this darn DD. I just ignore mine , never mentioned it to the doc.

    Wonder what could be causing another mistery, do you do anything for your vibrating or just tolerate it?

    Yes! My back from waist to shoulders does that under-skin vibrate thing and I pretty much ignore it...that is, I did until I saw this topic.
    I also get electric-feeling buzzes from the top of my spine, across both shoulders, down both arms and hands. Sort of the same feeling as sticking a finger in a light socket but moving DOWN shoulders and so on instead of the other way around.
    Just chalked it up to one of the many non-joys of this d'd. Dr won't talk with me about it.

    I could use all these words to describe the feeling I get - as someone else said - in the core of my body, at other times in certain parts only.

    I have it in my left hand and lower abdomen tonight.

    Very uncomfortable but seems lots of us have this.

    This has been my problem for the past several years. I have often described it as feeling "plugged in". It's almost like an electrical shock that never stops. According to my dr. this is a classic FM symptom.

    I'm sorry you're having to go through this. It can get very painful at times. I even have it in my head sometimes. It's awful.

    Hang in there. I hope you feel better soon!
    God bless,

    I know that FM has been listed as a Central Nervous System Disorder - part and parcel of this illness. It would seem logical the nerves are over-acting in areas of the body. It's all out of whack anyway!
