Anybody else get the twitching and shaking brain sensations. Its a symptom ive had in the past and has just returned in the past week.

I feel the twitching mostly on the sides of my head near my temple.

What causes this?

Its very annoying and kinda worrys me.

I also have been getting the shaking brain sensation and my vision will shake some too. Is this anything to be really concerend with?

Thanks,
Joe

i have this too.

It's hard to describe. Sometimes I feel like my head is hard on the outside like the skull, but within the skull I can feel another layer that is moving.

I know this is a strange description, but it feels sort of like a vibration.

I have also had pulsing sensations too and twitches in my eyelids and little muscles throughout my body.

Others can't feel the vibration. Say, if I ask my husband to feel my head when I am having the vibration sensation, he can't feel it. I wish he could, just so he could better understand my description.

Mine is worse when I am stressed or starving.

Thanks for the responses everybody. Yea this all started getting bad after i was sorta stressed.

Im guessing its a bart or blo type thing. IT comes along with different sorts of weird head pressure sensations too.

I just worry that the tiwtching and shaking sensations could cause some sort of seizure or something but i guess its juts the cns.

I have this off and on, but haven't had it for a while. To me it feels like my brain is itchy. A weird yucky feeling for sure.

yes, I have had this too

felt like my brain was vibrating, and my vision would shake

then I would completely lose my vision

testing for seizures was negative

however, I was told that not all seizures can be picked up with testing

tx for myco and bart has helped, but not completely

started an antiseizure med, and this also helped

both llmd's agreed that it is most likely from brain inflammation

I know how scary it is

I hope that your tx gives you relief
