    Leg vibrating 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?

    I don't know if this is exactly the same sensation, but for the past few weeks I've gotten the feeling of popcorn popping in my head and inside one of my arms.

    My neurologist feels this is tied in to all of my other symptoms. He hasn't officially diagnosed me, but right now MS is on the top of his possibilities list.
