Numb heels and internal vibrations

Posted by @kward86, Fri, Oct 12 10:18pm

Hi I've been dealing with a severe numbness in my entire heel for about two weeks now. Prior to that I start feeling a vibrating sensation in my feet like the floor was shaking. It would come and go and I didnt think much of it it has since progressed to my whole body. It will last anywhere from a couple minutes to an hour or more. It feels as if my body is shaking on the inside with no visual signs of shaking. I was labeled as pre-diabetic other than I had trouble with alcohol for years. My doctor is leaning towards alcohol induced neuropathy but has no explanation for the internal tremors. In my research I see things like Parkinson's and MS and I fear that multiple sclerosis is the cause and my doctor has been hesitant in going forward with any tests. More or less tells me to stay off Google and webmd. I'm 31 the heel numbness seeming came out of no where but then again years of alcohol abuse would explain it but not the internal tremors. Does anyone have any insight on internal tremors and other things that may cause them or should I seek a second opinion from another doctor and try and push for more testing.

Hello @kward86, welcome to Connect. I can relate to your wanting to get to the bottom of your health problem. I have idiopathic small fiber PN and Connect has helped me learn a lot about my condition by sharing my story and learning what others are doing for treatments. It's good that you are searching for answers. Another tool you can use for research is Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/) – it will find more medical and research type information and you can sort by year which lets you get the newest information. I'm not familiar with the internal tremors but there is some reliable information on Mayo Clinics site here:

Essential tremor
https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/essential-tremor/symptoms-causes/syc-20350534

Sometimes if there is doubt it can be helpful to get a second opinion. I’m not sure if it is an option for you but if it is, the Mayo Clinic is very good at diagnosing health issues that are difficult to diagnose. If you would like to seek help from Mayo Clinic, you can contact one of their appointment offices. The contact information for Minnesota, Arizona and Florida can be found here:

@kward86 have you made any lifestyle changes prior to the tremors starting?

I have that internal thing too. It feels like my bones are vibrating. Then I start twitching with muscle spasms. Medical marijuana helps me. I’m 45 and don’t have a firm diagnosis yet. ~Beth

Hi @bethchev, welcome to Connect. Thank you for joining the discussion with @kward86. You mentioned you don't have a firm diagnosis yet. Do your doctors offer any thoughts on what they think it might be?

Hi @cathy514, Welcome to Connect and thank you for sharing and joining the discussion. I have no medical training or background but a lot of the symptoms you shared might be related to the medication Clonazepam that you mentioned you are taking.

@cathy514 It seems like you are struggling with many issues. I am hoping that you had a pharmacological consultation before trying any cannabis product. You are right…some of it is very expensive and unless you have the right mix, e.g. 2:1 CBD to THC, you may not benefit from using it. And it also sounds like you had the wrong ratios when you experienced the anxiety and/or paranoia or you accidentally drank a glass of wine or another form of alcohol. Alcohol in any form does not mix well with cannabis. I only know because early on I made a couple of dosage mistakes that resulted in those situations. There are ways to come out of the anxiety. Now I use a 2:1 in my morning coffee and that lets me drive. The "feel good" effects last about 4 hours. The pain is not totally eradicated but it does become very manageable. And the tinnitus….wow can that be an annoying situation. So my morning routine is a quick coffee stop, add the 2:1 dosage and then go play mahjong with friends to keep the tinnitus from becoming so dominant. I have other routines for the evening based upon my planned activities. Once, I stood next to a father who was selecting tinctures for his autistic son. He was amazed at the difference it made. I try to go to the dispensary when James is there. He is close to my age and has a great deal of knowledge and even greater empathy. Many good wishes coming your way.
