Head - neck position affecting buzzing sensations?
« on: August 28, 2008, 09:54:47 PM »
Has anyone had changes in their tingling / buzzing sensation's frequency / intensity by adjusting their head and neck posture... I have had buzzing, twitches, and alot of other things before in the past. I found out at work today that one little buzz in my upper right leg would increase when I put my head way down. Scared me to death. I'm going to the doc again to discuss this new one as it reminds me of something ms related. I have talked to at least one other member here who has had this... and she had multiple clean mri's, but i still worry.

thanks

I may be completely wrong :spineyes: but if your buzzing alters when you move then it could be because the buzzing is caused by a spine problem and the movement alters the pressure on a nerve.

I have spinal damage and I get vibration feeling in my legs on and off that is coming from damaged nerves in back.

Do you have any back ache or am I barking up the wrong tree here :question:

What I have is a sign of MS. I think its called Lhermitte's sign. Moving your neck mostly down makes a slight small buzzing in my leg. It could be a disc issue or whatever but often it is your nerves irritated by ms from what I understand.

Ugh whoever invented MS needs to be shot. LOL  :fighting0010:
Why is this disease so deeply rooted in our brains?  :fragend005:
99% of us Don't have it, but think that we do, and it SUCKS.  :dazed:

From wiki:

"Lhermitte's Sign, sometimes called the Barber Chair phenomenon, is an electrical sensation that runs down the back and into the limbs, and is produced by bending the neck forward."

well i don't have this.... don't have anything in my neck or back.. its not electrical either.. more like a slight "the vibrating phone" phenomenon.

I get the tuning fork sensation in my legs - not an electric shock at all its just like someone has banged a tuning fork for a few seconds - a def buzz, I have it for months at a time then it goes away for up to a year and I have had this for past 20 years and still funtioning fine!

Yep,, like a dull tuning fork.. i think i have an answer sort of...

 Britannica Concise Encyclopedia | Date: 2007

Pain along the course of the sciatic nerve, from the lower back down each leg. It often begins after lower back strain and is associated with spinal disk herniation. Pain is increased by coughing, sneezing, or bending the neck forward.

Basically compressed muscle, joint pain and stress in lower back cause this. Not enough pressure to cause pain, instead you get buzz, or very slight discomfort.
http://www.chirogeek.com/Sciatica_Real_PAcut-away.jpg . Anything that tugs on the chord such as muscle stress, posture, neck posture, lifting, etc, can aggravate it..

I guess that's just another one of the many things it could be besides something big...
