muscle vibration / pulses

I have been experiencing electrical sensations in my left hand and both feet - very similar to the vibration you feel when your cell phone is on 'vibrate' but, of course, my cell phone is not under/near my feet/hand, etc.  Also, I have been experiencing quick electrical pulses in my left forearm and hand which may be a 'slower' form of whatever is happening when i feel the vibrations.  It has been happening for about 2 weeks.

Any thoughts to what it may be?

Have you had any trauma to your spine? Any back or neck pain?

Many conditions could possibly cause your symptoms and this would include nerve compression/impingement, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and some endocrine disorders. However, nothing can be ascertained at this point and some ancillary procedures would have to be done to come to a diagnosis.

You should consult a physician to undergo a complete evaluation of your present symptoms.

Hope this helps.

It could be due to pinching of nerve in the spine. Please consult a neurologist. MRI spine can help in making a diagnosis.
