Buzzing in my foot!
« on: May 18, 2014, 09:35:17 AM »
The last couple of months I've been noticing a kind of "buzzing" or "vibrating" in my right foot. I only notice it at rest.

What could it be? I'm thinking it's something circulatory?

Since my biggest fear is ALS I'm scared that these vibrations are actually very small fasculations. Although I'm not weak i this foot and I can walk on my toes and heals without any obvious issues.

I get this and it's super common as an anxiety symptom... It used to bother me more when I was very worried about MS or ALS until I realized how many people get this. Funny enough, once I stopped worrying about it - it doesn't happen anymore....

Hi Joyce, as crazymommy said, this is a symptom of anxiety and also a symptom of restless leg syndrome, which is no big deal either.....try to distract yourself when it's happening or take a short walk and it may improve for you.

Good luck!

Oh wow who knew! Thank you so much!

I've wondered about restless legs actually. Since last fall I've noticed this kind of restless sensation in my legs when I'm about to go to sleep - it's like I feel stressed in my legs. Usually they my legs will twitch and do big jumps as I'm about to fall asleep as well. My doctor said this is not restless led though. She actually couldn't answer to what this was about. Any thoughts?

Not sure Joyce....could even be your body finally trying to relax when you get into bed?
