Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for May 12, 2005



Today I mentioned to my wife that I had a feeling of a fine internal vibration inside of my body (like a cat purring) and I only feel it when lying down at night in bed. It’s been happening for a few weeks now. Maybe I should get it checked out.  I’ve always been in fairly good health, so much so that I never bothered with a family doctor since I moved out of Orangeville in 1991. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink alcohol or coffee and I don’t drink carbonated drinks. I eat a fairly healthy diet although I could probably eat a lot more fruits and vegatables.

So to the Walk-in clinic I go for internal vibrations!

Six months ago I moved to the Oshawa area from Scarborough and although the commute is a bit longer, it’s a great place to relax and not think about the big city life. (NOTE TO SELF: Canandian winters? Always buy a house with a garage.)

My wife is now four months pregnant with our first child.  How exciting!!! They have told us the due date will be November 4th.

I met with the doctor in the walk-in clinic and I mention the internal vibrations. She appeared quite puzzled and she checks me over. She starts by shining a bright pen flashlight in both of my eyes, takes my blood pressure and listens to my lungs. She says everything appears normal and orders a blood and urine test.

That will have to wait until the weekend as the lab is now closed.

  1. Did you ever figure out the vibrations? I had this symptom for about 2 months, my dr said b vitamin deficiency so I dutifully got a b-complex and took them. Nothing. After a whole lot of Googling I discovered that the supplement I was taking was woefully inadequate for someone with a deficiency, so I started taking 4-5000 mcg/day of sublingual b12. The vibrating stopped in less than a week and has not come back. It was never painful but it was really distracting and annoying. People around me thought I was crazy. I discovered that the meds I take for T2 diabetes can inhibit b 12 absorption which is probably what caused it to begin with.

    • Yes, I actually did find out the cause of the vibration… but it was by accident. And I did discover that B complex stopped the vibration but it wasn’t consistent. Sometimes it worked and other times it didn’t. I also found a number of other things that would make it stop, but nothing would ever get rid of it until…

      Don’t want to ruin it for other readers who wish to read the blog.
