Leg vibration feeling inside?

Hello! I was diagnosed with Lupus around 6 years ago. I was diagnosed with Behcet's Disease about a year ago. For years now very sporadically I will wake during the night feeling like the insides of my body are vibrating, but it doesn't happen very often. For about 2 weeks now my left lower leg feels like it is vibrating inside, it happens throughout the day and night. I can't feel it vibrating on the outside when I place my hand on it. When it's bad it will do it for hours about every 10 to 5 seconds and vibrate for 2 or 3 seconds. It drives me crazy! One night it woke me vibrating continuously for about an hour. My internist examined me and is suspicious of MS. My sensory perception is decreased about 30% in that lower leg. She is doing some other testing. Has anyone ever experienced this and what was the diagnoses/treatment?

Hi and welcome

I don't have they symptoms you describe, but I know many people with lupus experience Restless Leg Syndrome which could be what you are experiencing. Here are some links for you:

Please let us know what happens at the doctor!

I get a vibration feeling once in a while, but it doesn't sound like yours. I usually get it in the hip area and it feels like my cell phone is vibrating in my pocket... but when I go to answer it, there's no phone. Lol. It only lasts a few minutes at a time.

Good luck at the doctor, and keep us posted please.

Thanks Lupylisa! It doesn't seem to be the same feeling as restless legs.
