Does anyone get strange pulses all over their body?

I can literally see my skin bulging up and down as if there is a mini-heart under the skin.

It migrates.. lately more on my right arm (where my PICC line is) but when it first started, it was in my upper back near the lats. Then it migrated toward legs too.

The other day I saw it in my belly area.

Do you think this is a parasite? It doesn't hurt, just a heart beat all over my body.

Or maybe it's blood clots?? I am overthinking this..

Sounds to me like muscle spams or "tics". They can look just like a vein pulsating under the surface, or they can be more jumpy.

I used to get very similar and at first it confused me because it was so evenly-timed, just like a heartbeat.

Yep, Have experienced the same thing all over. I always thought it was parasites for some reason. They seem to have a beat all their own.

this was one of my first symptoms. It worsens when I am stressed.

YES!! I had it REALLY bad about 2 weeks ago. It almost felt like electric current or internal vibration of some sort coursing through my body. Sometimes even my face! But mostly my limbs. I did NOT like it!!

I don't know if this is related or not... but since stopping ALL abx last Friday... my body is much more calm now. The vibration/current is about 70% gone! It's so quiet in there finally. Thanks God!

I don't know what caused it... but I'm just glad it's mostly gone.

Hmm - so is it bart? I'm on Rifampin too.

But I had these symptoms before starting any abx at all..

Well I am doing parasite treatment so that could be irritating them (now that I feel the beats more often).
