Is this a Lyme thing, or a coinfection thing? I've tested negative for coinfections.

The buzzing is different from tingling, which I had for a long time in fingers and toes, and which has gotten a lot better.

But I feel a little worried that a new symptom is showing up. I've been on the same medication for a few months now.

Hi Janice,

It is definitely a Lyme thing!

I get it all the time in my feet and lower legs. It feels almost like a vibration.

I have severe neuropathy and in my case I think it is related to that.

Have you ever had your B12 tested? My B12 shots seem to help with this annoying symptom.

Also, my PCP put me on a new med called Metanx which I think is helping.

Hope you get some relief soon.

I get that too and was wondering if it is a build

up of toxins as I don't seem to be able to detox

well after taking a year of antibiotics. My body

is also itchy under the skin.

I never had this buzzing in my feet and legs before my antibiotic treatments. Any thoughts?

I get a "buzzing" in my legs and in my shoulders. It doesnt happen all the time but its like a fast tapping sensation. I cant feel it on the outside but sure the hec can feel it inside. It will happen for a few minutes then subside.

i get that weird "vibration" feeling. happens most in heels or shoulders. have that sometimes

in legs in randaom places. had this before lyme

dx. and nero. said is def. poly neuropathy, as well

as redicular pain, myopathy. i loose sensation

on pin prick test, and the tuner test. on cymbalta and neurontin which has helped lots!1

i also have these weird muscle spasms or i say
"twitching" and have added baclofen, is little

better. my neuro. is treating all those kind of
things, LLMD agrees with his tx. basically tx me

like and MS patient. Pain doc even increased

the neurontin dose, that has helped. have not had

the buzzing/vibrating since i think. really need

to journal. but, yes that is nerve damage. one of

the docs i see for the bio-identiacal hormone

stuff was involved in studies 20 yr ago on

lyme when she practiced in N.Y. She is co-author

on paper from back then. she was telling me how

she "happened" into it all by happenstance, but

when she saw the Bb actually go into the nerve

cell and cause demylnination she tried to show

anyone she could. she told me was most amazing

thing to ever see and is aware of how much

damage this can do. she has not kept up with the

new info but, trying to recrute her for out side...lol hey, may work!! tried with my

neuro but he said no way, not after the way

they go after doc for tx. leaves the lyme tx to

LLMD and he helps with the neuro stuff.

--------------------
i am not a Dr. any info is only for education, suggestion or to think/research. please do not mis-intuprest as diagnostic or prescriptive, only trying to help. **

dx in 08:lyme, rmsf, bart, babs, and m.pneumonia.

I'm not interested in medication to stop the sensation, unless it would actually help to prevent damage. Does neurontin prevent damage, or just mask the sensation?

Can the nerves heal eventually?
