    Vibration in pelvic/hip area
    An_198590 posted:
    I started working out about a month ago. Mostly push ups and free weights but I recently started doing some sit up and leg lifts. About a week after i started the leg lifts and sit ups I am not getting this weird muscle spasm/vibrating feeling in my pelvic area at the top of my leg. Almost the hip area.

    If i stamp my foot down really hard a lot of the time i get a vibrating feeling in that spot. I get the feeling mostly from movement or from something like stepping down really hard. It does seem to randomly happen on its own as well, but mostly seems to be related to some type of pressure or movement.

    Any idea what it could be?
