I'm having a strange fluttering vibration in my vaginal

Customer Question

I'm having a strange fluttering vibration in my vaginal area, there's no pain. It started in my lower left buttocks 2 nights ago and now has transferred to the vaginal area standing and now sitting. I'm in my 60's. What's causing this sensation that I've never had before? It came on all of a sudden that other night. It feels like eyelid flutter uncontrollably like a nervous spasm-like a muscular nerve shivering.

It sounds that you describe a muscle fasciculation. This is caused by irritation of a small nerve branch that activates a muscle. This type sensation may come and go at practically any part of the body . you correctly note the eyelid to be a common area for this phenomenon.

It commonly is transient and may resolve on its own. If persistent and bothering you then 91st times adding a magnesium supplement may help ( magnesium oxide is over the counter 400mg per day)

You can consult your doctor if it is ongoing or frequent and bothering you. It may benefit from a medication such as Klonapin.

If other symptoms should develop then you may need more evaluation.It sounds to relate to a small nerve branch irritation but if you should have broader type symptoms then further evaluation of aspects perhaps to include evaluation of lower back and pelvis area .
