me again! - Pulsing sensation in leg

Sorry it's me again...I do apologise if I am getting on anybody's nerves. I am just having such a horrable time.

A new one for me and what is keeping my heart rate up tonight heh and the last couple of days on and off. in my right thigh I have a pulsing feeling like I can almost feel the blood rushing through my leg after my heart beat. It's such an odd feeling not felt something like it before it's like a little bit of a buzzing sensation.

There is no pain or burning of something it's just more annoying but it is stressing me out in a bit way. When I put my leg up it doesn't go away...I just want it to go away!!!

has anybody experianced this?? should I be concerned?? How can I get rid of it?? any help would be great! I am just worried my BP is super high or something which is causing this but it appears to be isolated to my right thigh for now.

Appreciate any feedback, this is so doing my head in!!

Thanks ,

OMG, I get this all the time. I have been so worried that it is a clot or something. Truthfully I do not know what it is but because I have had it happen for so long and nothing serious has happened I tend not to worry to badly.

Re: me again! - Pulsing sensation in leg

Ive had this as well on and off the last few weeks. It can be anywhere from my legs to my neck/back /hands/feet. I am just ignoring it when it happens (as best i can lol)
I also have no idea what it is but notice it when im sitting or lying still.

Re: me again! - Pulsing sensation in leg

Does it feel like you have a tuning fork ( if you know what I am on about) and someone has hit it and its vibrating in pulses?? If so I first had this when I was 22 and I am now 50!! I have had 5 mri brain scans over that time and its def not MS or anything neuro. With me it lasted about 4 months and then went away but it has come back on and off over the years. I do have herniated discs in my lumbar spine which have been a problem for past 10 years and when my lower back really goes then I get terrible muscle twitching in my thigh that is directly related to the pressure on the nerves in my lumbar spine SO I would assume that the vibrating sensation could very easily just be from a very slightly iffy lower back, when I was 22 I did not have any back pain at all but experience and old age! has let me work out what was probably happening.

Re: me again! - Pulsing sensation in leg

Yep got this in my legs, everywhere in my body. It is annoying me and making me upset and worried. I don't know what causes it and I don't think it is anxiety.... it does feel like a tuning fork and it comes in pulses. It starts at my back and feet. I notice that it is very common. I don't want to be depressed over this.
