It just started yesterday. I can only feel the vibration--its like an electrical pulsation. No measures tried. I have no other symptoms

Thank you for the information,

The vibrating sensation can be due to muscle twitching.

There can be different causes for the twitching.

This can be due to irritation of nerve.

Dehydration or electrolyte changes can be factors.

It can pass away by its own.

Gentle massage, application of warm or cold can help.

It can be associated with excessive anxiety, fatigue, vitamin deficiency, electrolyte imbalance, caffeine intake etc

Excess exercise can also cause muscles to twitch.

It can be sign of neuromuscular disorder, neuro or myopathy too.

I would suggest to take an examination by your doctor.

A few tests like metabolic panel, NCV, EMG, ultrasound can be taken depending on clinical finding.

Take plenty of fresh fruits & vegetables which would help in vitamin & mineral deficiency.

Please keep good hydration.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
