Oh yes!! I had it in the backs of my thighs and lower back before the whole twitching fiasco started. It used to wake me up at night - I felt like I was plugged into an electric socket. :x

I hadn't really had any buzzing to speak of since the first few weeks that my twitching started back in April. After seeing my neuro yesterday, I have been buzzing in different parts of both legs (like a physical sensation of a phone ringing for a few minutes). Then it will go for a few hours and come back in a different spot. I woke up this morning with a few "thumpers" in my arm and my other shoulder, and my leg twitching after a quiet start is in full flow. In a strange way I am relieved that this is all going on. It is so obviously a reaction to the immense stress that I have put myself through over the last couple of weeks. I was much more worried when it was my just legs twitching constantly. Instead of freaking at every little buzz and strange sensation, I am beginning to acknowledge, accept and move on.

Karen, that is fantasic news! My experience has been similar. Congratulations on acknowledging, accepting & most importantly, moving on.

Once diagnosed by a medical professional, this benign condition is not worth wasting your time worrying and/or researching it. There are so very many more important things in life besides BFS!

I am very happy for you. Perhaps your words will inspire others on this BB.

I had buzzing for a month on the bottom of my feet, over two years ago. At first it worried me, but one day I found a quote from a neurologist, an ALS specialist in fact, who said, about buzzing, "It's nothing! Don't worry about it." And from that day on I didn't.

I still have slight "electric current" sensations in my feet, quite often actually. I think it's caused by nerve irritation of some sort. I've also read on the 'net that most pyschiatrists will tell you that buzzing is a symptom of anxiety.

Whatever, it sure is strange....the strangest sensation I've ever experienced. BTW, mine was the one-second-on, one-second-off, sort of pulsating...anyone else have that?
