buzzing / vibration bottom of left foot

Ok, this has happened before, but it happened again tonight. My left foot in the arch, same exact spot everytime, has a low vibration buzzing feeling. It feels like if something like a cell phone on vibrate is under my foot. I feel it for 5 seconds and then it stops and then it does it again and stops.

Hi my name is Julie and have been a member of this comunity fro over 2 years now.
We have not met yet so "Hello".

Now on to the buzzing/vibrating feelings you have been having.

Well first off they are very common with most of the members here.

I personaly started the way you have with it being an on off thing for quite some time.

Well not any more mines are now my constant companion with most of the buzzing vibrating in my feet it has been constant for around 8 months or so now.

If you look at the health pages on the upper right hand side of this page click on that and got to the Section that is titled " Things that go buzz in the night " you will read a bit about what you are experiencing.

Lastly it is nothing to worry about just another sensory symptom just so annoying at times. Well i hope yours stops annoying you sooner rather than later but if not its just something we have to live with. Sorry but thats the way it has been for me.

Take Care and be Well and if you need us for anything  answers or just an ear to listen we will be here for you.

Hugs and kindest regards
Julie xx

Yep, this has happened to me but included internal buzzing, like in the very core of my body (spinal cord?).  It was short lived (a few weeks on and off) but has since gone away along with the majority of my other symtoms (symptoms).

I get this in my hip, oddly the same spot my cell phone is when it is in my pocket, so I'm constantly feeling to see if I accidently shut the ringer off LOL

When I was having the really bad foot pain a couple weeks ago, I had the feeling that one of those tuning fork thingies was on my inner heel.

Every time it seems to last a day or two, buzzing for about 20 seconds every hour or two. I try to just ignore it :-)

I get buzzing in three specific spots on my head. A quarter/half dollar sized spot on the back left of my head, my left ear lobe (!), and the left side of the tip of my nose. I am undiagnosed, so of course it's all stress/anxiety according to the doctors (but oddly not my therapist or psychiatrist). It really freaked me out at first, but then after talking about it in therapy I realized it's really not that big a deal. For me it's more about what it symbolizes, that something real is actually happening, than the actual feeling, which is just a minor to moderate annoyance.

I cant agree more... my therapist knows something is going on with me physically not mentally,, that feeling I get doesnt bother me either, its just something else to let me know something is going on.

I get the buzzing in both feet, but only get the real bad heel pain in the right foot.  I also get buzzing down my whole left arm from between my shoulder blades right to my finger tips.  Worse at night when I'm trying to relax or sleep.

What kind of heel pain do you feel.. ?? I ask this because I was experiencing some heel pain in both feet for a while but it only happened when I was resting and my feet were up in a crossed over position. They were very painful and I had to keep repositioning my feet, but could never get comfortable. Thank God that has passed too.

You described exactly what I have been having in my right foot lately! Left foot toes have been numb for a year+ now.
Just went for results of MRI follow up (3 years ago first one) today with no answers as to why I'm having neuroapthy.  I go for second spinal tap Monday (3 years ago first one).
Neuro said never heard of buzzing under foot! Feels like sliding on ice at times! I hate this & am having a hard time walking plus tingling & pins/needles throughout body & face along with leg cramps!
I just want to know what I am dealing with! I could just scream at times!
Take care & I hate to say this but it made me feel better knowing someone else knows what I feel!!!

so you get the buzzing vibrating phone under your foot too?? LOL When mine first happened, I was sitting on the steps in my garage having a cig. and my left foot vibrated. I moved my foot and repositioned it and it happened again, I thought my heat was kicking on and the pipes below me were vibrating, until I noticed it was only the left foot.
I was like, " what the H***"  Ever since then I get it, but its not daily. On again off again. for the past year.
I could scream too, I would love to know what I am dealing with, the good news is,,,,,,, we are all in this together :)
I cant believe your neuro said he's never heard of it! he's full of bologna! Ha Ha, maybe he never did, who knows, I learn more on this forum than I have anywhere else about all of this stuff, maybe he should join.
Take care, and I hope you get answers soon, please keep me posted.

I'm not dx at the moment I'm stuck in limboland...I too recently started getting the vibrating in my right foot....I noticed it a few weeks ago I was sitting on the sofa and my right foot was going off like it had a cell phone stuck in side of it...it freaked me out at first but now I'm getting use to it....
I was wondering if yall ever get weird senstations in your back hard to explain it's more then a tingling feeling it kind of like a zapping feeling...I use to get it now and then but it seems like the last two days its been my  daily friend ..it does not hurt but really annoying....
Sorry my last question...do yall have any problems with your legs for the last month or so my feet are in constant motion...I not sure if its  tremors or what but you  really notice when I cross my legs.. my legs and feet bounce on their own...they are constant motion...I finally decided to video tape it so I can show my neuro dr in a few weeks....

Both of yall take care and I hope we all get answers soon

I have had upper back/neck pain shoulder blade area, numb, burning and stiffened up so badly that I couldn't move from my kitchen table for an hour. I was on the phone with my sisters chatting away and all of a sudden PAIN, BURN , STIFF, OMG I CANT MOVE feeling came over me. IT WAS AWFUL !
I also sometimes get a zap when I put my head down, but that happens in the morning  or if I have been in the same position for too long.
My legs twitch sometimes, but alot of the times, I cannot sit without contracting my muscles all over for some reason. Its really weird, I am never sitting without tighting up my leg or butt muscles, LOL I have no idea why, its something new I do.
Take care,

LOL, join the party!!  Isn't that an annoying feeling??

I asked my first MS Neuro who was not a "People Person", so to speak.  In fact he had a personality sort of like a saucer of cold pee.  However, despite his intensity he was very smart.  I asked him if he ever had people tell him it felt like they had a cell phone set on vibrate somewhere on their bodies.  He rolled his eyes (very uncharacteristic) and said, "Allll the time!"

It's a very MS thing to have.  Quite the fashionable problem.

The Health Page some one mentioned above is about Paresthesias - sensations that are there without a physical cause - unless you are one of the rare few with a cogenital, subcutaneous cell phone. :))

I love the " saucer of cold pee" LOL, I actually read the health pages regarding the things that go buzz in the night. Very informative. I know what I have is something along the lines of " MS"  if only I could just get the dx, it would get me on the road to start on meds that I should be on.

My buzzing that I have had on the bottom of my left foot, felt as though it was traveling up to my shin at one point.

I'm glad it doesn't hurt and it's just alittle annoying,

The funny thing is, I once googled something like "buzzing foot" or "vibrating foot" (I've had both in the past 10 years) and found ENDLESS posts on some forum(s) about people who have this. It's apparently pretty common, even in people who described no other weird symptoms that might be indicative of MS or some other neuro problem.

Of course, it can certainly happen with neuro diseases too, but it seems to be more common than one would think!

The irony is that I'm up late and can't sleep because of my buzzing foot.  So I decided to surf the forums and came upon this post.  How funny.  Well, not funny, but you know what I mean.

I'm glad to hear this is fashionable, Quix  =)

I was wondering if it is normal for your rib cage to fall asleep just from sitting curled up on a couch. I don't think I have ever felt that before, I was just curious if it is normal.

by the way, it stopped maybe after 5 to 10 mins. It was probably nothing.

Hi neil,
welcome to the forum,, I am still in limbo, so I probably will not be much help, but you will get alot of help and support here. I still get the buzzy feeling in the same spot, I think I am just getting used to it now, because sometimes I notice it and other times I don't.


Have you had seen a neuro, or mention this to your primary doc,?

Good luck to you,
Pam

Hi Pam, welcome!  

I think I have you beat at asking lots of questions.  I've been on here about two months asking them.  I was just diagnosed with MS.  It was funny to me when I read your first post about the buzzing left foot because just today I noticed in my left big toe.  It buzzes lightly about 3-5 seconds apart.  I have L'hermittes which is a shock that runs down your back and down when you bend your head downward.  It affects my right side along with most of my sensory symptoms.  

Anyhow, thanks for your post.  With all the responses I got an answer to my latest question!  

Wishing us luck to rid this,
Jeny

I used to get that when I was working in the hospital in 2006.  I think that was my first paresthesia sensation was "cell phone" vibration on the soles of my feet and in my right groin area.  I used to think it was a copy machine or something at the nurses station and would ask Doctors around me, "Do you feel that?" lol

Jeny,

LOL, I do ask a ton of questions,, my drs. know I have my list of questions ready when I go to see them.
Glad this post helped!
Take Care

Lisa,
Thanks ... and it definately feels like a cell phone, the problem with me is, I hardly ever use my cell phone, I am one of those that keeps it in my purse and uses it in case of emergency. So for me It feels like I swallowed it and it landed at the bottom of my foot. LOL

Hugs,
Pam

Hi guys
How are we all buzzing today? LOL

I get this a lot, at first I thought it was the vibrations from the car since I was travelling at the time but it didn't stop when the engine did so I figured it must be another weird and wonderful thing going wrong with me.

I get it in my feet and sometimes other places, I too pat my pocket to check if it's not my mobile going off on vibrate even when the phone is clearly on the table in front of me and not in my hip pocket.

I was wondering if anyone gets electric shock like sensations in their hands?
I often get them, they shoot up my wrist and up my arm, it feels like I've just touched a circuit or something really hot and have been zapped.
They can last for minutes and get better if I can flex my fingers and move my hands.
Sometimes I don't get them for a couple of weeks and then they're back again.

Good luck to all here, I hope that you all soon get some answers and the help you need x
You are not alone.

Still buzzing in the foot. No buzzing anywhere else at the moment.

I do get twitches alot in my thumb and inside the fold of my arm. I do not get a zapping feeling up the arm, but I have had a dull ache in the backside of my right arm for a week now.

I have something new it seems all of the time. I don't always want to bring it up to my doc. because I feel like I am noticing everything, even though it could mean something serious.

My buzzing  and twitching have been all on my left side and pain has been on my right. Just recently, the twithcing muscle in my arm was on the right side.

I also have a very prominent tremor that is only in my left hand and I am a lefty. It happens during movement not resting.

Are you dx'd with ms?

Take care,
Pam
