Internal tremors especially in my head

Posted , 13 users are following.

I'm a 28 year old female that lives a realitivly stress free life that is healthy and active. A month ago I randomly started feeling a INTERNAL  shaking tremoring sensation in my upper body this lasted for a week and went away. In this time I had a MRI of the head and an ECG that both came back as normal.

Last week the tremors came back and for the last 3 days they have been solely confined to my head. I only notice it at times of rest if I'm watching TV or in bed and when I'm active I do not notice it. My doctors do not have an explanation for this and because my tests have come back ok they think I'm imagining it because there's nothing visual for them to see. Also for around a year I've had strange feelings of pins and needles that go through my arms and legs and stay for days. I'm not sure if this is related. Can anybody offer any explanations because I really do not know what this is and I'm extremely worried.

    Also can I add I am not stressed or anxious although my doctors say it's anxiety. I've had tests for thyroids and diabetes and all have come back fine

    I am not a doctor but after 40 years of dealing with stress and anxiety, you could have a little anxiety.  You say your stress free, but are you fearful?  Only you will be aware of this and all others will be oblivious to your condition.  Do you exercise?  Walk 30 to 60 minutes everyday and see if this helps.  Now is not the time to worry.  It will only worsen.   Fear can cause these conditions and the doctors and all their exams will find nothing.  Eventually they will recommend medicine and try to mask the symptoms without determining the cause.  Medicine is sometimes worse than the bite.  Laugh more and be happy and it will hopefully disappear.

    Thank you for getting back to me I don't feel fearful at all and I'm really active I dance 4 times a week and also gym 3/4 times a week. I'm hoping it is just stress that I don't know I'm feeling

      Hopefully it is just stress, but it could be a form of anxiety.  You need to stay active and keep exercising.  Your only 28, it could be just chemical changes.  If  you worry about this, you can make it worse.  Laugh it off, be happy and hopefully it will just go away.  I have dealt with stress and anxiety for the last 40 years. I will not share symptoms with you, but freedom comes from a positive attitude,love and laughter.

    When you mention;”in your head”, do you mean you are having involuntary movements of your head/neck area?

      Yes it involuntary movement. For a few weeks now I’ve also had a pressure sensation in my face kind of like a pulling around the nose and central forehead area. I’ve been given propanol as my tremors became visable and this has helped a lot as I’m sleeping now but it’s stull not treating the cause of the symptoms. Tomorrow I’m going to see a Lymes disease specialist as many of my symptoms seem to relate to this. I’ll let you know how I get on.

      Saysha   I would love to hear what your doctor said. i have the same thing.  I fell down steps and now have vibrations in my head. Pressure so bad and the pulling around the nose and forehead. Also when i open my mouth wide it pulls on my face.  I don't sleep. i don't know how i'm alive. Pain all over my back, head and neck.is so bad.   I can't even go into how much pain and the vibrations feel.  I'm on ambien and it doesn't help at all. So much stress now.  Did you have any teeth work done? i had a bridge put it and it feels tight, my sinuses feel cloggedI was wondering if the teeth had anything to do with it. I also have extreamly sensitive ears now, if anyone talks loud the vibrations start.  I'm at a loss. I feel like i lost my life now.

    Hi, i also have the same but worst, i am always feeling this vibration in my brain and body but is not noticed outside and my head feels like heavy. Had an MRI and they found like white matter flair hypersensitivities but said that this don't usually goes with the internal shakiness. It is very scary, frustrating because i don't know what else to do, it does not let me sleep or enjoy life.  If you find anything that could help me please e mail me.  Thanks

    Hi, I have had the same symptoms as you describe for the last month: tremors confined to my head/face when resting/sleeping, and on again off again tingling in my arms and legs. I've also had leg weakness, finger cramps, and a lot of difficulty sleeping. I have seen my doctor and am waiting to see a neurologist but the wait times are very long here (I live in Canada). It was suggested to me that this could be stress-related, but seems unlikely to me. While I wait, I came across your post and I am just wondering if you ever received a diagnosis?

    Internal vibration sensation - caused by stress??

    Posted 2 years ago

    I've found several forums where there have been posts from people experiencing this disconcerting feeling of an internal quivering or vibration but none of them are current, so I wanted to see if anyone else out there is having the same experience and can share an insight into what might be causing it.

    I started to get this feeling of internal vibration when I was mainly lying in bed and then occasionally if I shifted position it might last for 30 seconds or so before disappearing. That was about 8 months ago. Now I feel it every night and during the day as well quite often. The other day after a short walk of a few hundred yards followed by a period of standing still it felt like the ground was vibrating because it was in my feet. It seems to move around to different areas of the body - sometimes I feel it in my legs, an arm, torso - it's quite random but often felt when I've shifted position in bed. At first I thought it was circulatory but now I think it's probably neurological. I thought I was having palpitations but an ECG showed nothing abnormal. I've also had a full spine & brain MRI as I've been having other strange symptoms of occasional numbness and sensations of burning and cold areas of my arms/hands and legs/feet and a sore tongue which comes and goes and often feels like I've just cleaned my teeth with menthol toothpaste when I haven't. I thought I had all the signs of MS, but it hasn't been diagnosed. I've also had a number of blood tests for immune issues, evoked potentials and nerve conductivity tests. Nothing! The MRI does show a lot of wear to my cervical vertebrae and two anterior spondylolisthesis - one cervical, one lumbar, so I wonder if my spinal issues could be the cause. My neurologist was doubtful. He also couldn't explain the vibration sensation except to say that it can be caused by a migraine, which I certainly haven't had.

    I just don't know where to go with this now. My GP isn't interested and puts everything down to stress which I AM under it's certainly true to say, but I don't think she's right. I've had to pay for all my neuro investigations as a result because she won't refer me or do any more blood tests etc. I'm trying homeopathy, osteopathy and acupuncture as I want to find something that will relieve these weird symptoms and prefer to avoid drugs if I can.

    I'm 58, eat reasonably heathily, no alcohol, only 1 cup of coffee a day and my weight is normal. I broke my wrist badly at the end of August last year which is when my problems all seemed to start. i

    I also wonder if the metal plate that was used to fix the fracture could be causing some kind of strange reaction.

    If anyone else is having these symptoms please let me know if you've been able to identify the cause and how to deal with it.

    Hi there

    Ive experienced internal tremors, buzzing, zaps for over six years. Its much worse just after waking up in the morning where it feels like my head is in a vice. I dont know whats causing them however they started after i received several vaccines to work in the hospital.

    Ive been to many visits to the gp who in the end put me on Anti convulsants which helped me sleep but didnt stop them. I am now weening off them as

    I have recently found two things which have stopped them.

    I found that removing gluten from my diet elieviated the intensity of them

    But the best remedy was found by complete accident, and thats nutmeg.

    Not much is needed.. I sprinkle it in everything and in a hot drink of milk and tea/hot chocolate/decaf before bed.

    It works for me every time..the doctor cant belive it..from such a humble spice.. Less is more with nutmeg though as its psyco active in large doses..

    I highly recomend trying this.

    All the best everyone.. X

    Thank you for starting this thread. My wife is experiencing symptoms that started as tingling in her hands and feet, that progressed to "internal vibrations", and now to visible trembling. When she is having an episode she shakes so hard that she can't hardly stand. Her GP ran blood work tests and urinalysis tests which all came back normal. All organs appear to be functioning correctly. The next step was a Rhumatologist, and all results came back normal. Then the nuerologist started testing with an MRI and EEG; all results were normal. Since all of the western medical experts can't find a problem, we have begun seeing eastern medical specialists. Accupuncture seemed to have some affect on the trembling, but she does still have episodes that make her break down in tears.
