Does anyone else out there experience this. It is like a humming in the head and body. Loud music makes mine worse. I take Zanex to deal with it, but it doesn't always help so they are putting me on Cymbalta. It has happened at each relapse but gone away, except for the last and now it stays. The Neuro says he doesn't think it is MS. I disagree.

" I have called Shared Solutions about it and they suggested I contact the MS assoc.
Which I am today. My Neuro keeps saying he doesn't think its the MS, but I feel different. Started the Cymbalta and it definately helps. Just can't sleep so need to take it early in AM. I am thinking about changing Neuro Doc's, I need one that will listen. Good Luck with your appt. "

" I have buzzing/vibrating sensations in various parts of my body. The first significant spot that really stood out was in the right ear canal about 2 months ago, then to my right hip, etc... I had noticed about a year ago that I was having a "bubbly sensation" in my abdomen but thought that it was just gas, or had to do with my acid reflux disorder (which by the way, is also getting worse!). Anyways, now that I'm having a more distinct buzzing/vibrating sensation on skin, ear, hip, etc, I've come to decide that it (bubbly sens.) was one in the same type of symptom all this time. In fact, I feel it in my abdomen alot now. One day I was driving home from work, and felt it all over my that was really weird!

" I talked to the MS Society today and they have heard about it from other MS patients, so I feel better about it. I am sure I need to find another Neuro who will at least listen to me and not suggest I see a Shrink or Ear, Eyes and Nose Doc. The Cymbalta does help, but makes me feel so werid and stress out. Can't sleep. "

" I'm so glad you posted this! I've felt kinda weird asking about it, hard to describe. I've said I feel like a cat purring, but it never shuts off! It seems to center in my back, but has gone to my arms, & legs, sometimes my head, & even my nose! Feel like Bewitched!! LOL! I always hope it can't be seen. I too like Heather have asked my husband to feel my arm or leg, but he says no. What a strange symptom, eh??? "

" YOU ROCK MARGO !!! Thank you for posting i dont feel as crazy as the docs are making me feel. I get this viberating feeling in my head,left leg and left arm a lot and then sometimes it travels to the right arm.Im on a whole slew of meds and none are taking this away.It drives me nuts sometimes because it dosent hurt or anything its just irritating.

" Interesting....I don't recall the sounds but who knows when you have so many symptoms but you did mention how loud music makes it worse.
I find when I am especially tired that loud or even noises that arent too loud just pierce in my head and like echoes ,I dont know one of those hard to describe feelings but does drive me crazy!!! I use to be on Cymbalta but stopped it a couple months a go or so, now I can't recall if it happened back when I was on it or not???
Hope you find relief with the Cymbalta!
Best wishes..... "
