You have heard of restless leg syndrome right??? Well I get that feeling all over my body not only when I try to sleep but also any time during the day when I sit to rest. Have you had MS eliminated as a possible diagnoses? I have heard that electrocution feeling can be part of that. I was tested for MS and so far it's just the fibromyalgia. I do suffer from anxiety tho so maybe it is just that! Good luck. Brandy

I have had the same thing happen to me.

Hi tcmby ... Just like with BrandyO, I have restless leg syndrome. Even though I am on meds for RLS (which also affects my arms, neck, shoulders and back), sometimes the only relief I can get for my arms is to wrap them (not too tight) with an ace bandage. I don't know why, but it works for me. Good Luck.

I have restless leg syndrome as well. Your symtoms sound similar to what happens to me. I don't take meds for it because it only happens occasionally.

I do get this too sometimes. Its not in my legs either. i have heard that sometimes your mind can wake up before your body is ready & this causes a temporary paralysis... i have also woken up feeling like i was shaking or buzzing from the inside out. my husband thinks i'm nuts, it can feel scary and kinda neurological but my doctor also said this is a common "fibro thing" and not to worry about it. Easy for him to say! hope you feel better.

I have much difficulty falling asleep. Once I get to sleep, I think the elavil kicks in and I go into an extremely deep sleep -- when someone wakes me up I literally jump like I am startled and it scares my kids to death. Sometimes when I try to fall asleep, I think it is restless leg. I get this feeling that I need to continually stretch and move my legs and feet. Other times I don't have this feeling, but no matter how tired I am, it can take me well over an hour to fall asleep. I am not going to bed too early or anything, usually it is pretty late and I should be exhausted. I really don't want to try sleeping pills. It helps to take a relaxing bath right before bedtime, but that is a luxury I don't always have time for. I always read before going to bed and I used to fall asleep with the book in my hand, but now I have to make myself put the book away to get to sleep.

thanx for the replies you guys. this has nothing to do with my legs though, the weird buzzy feeling is everywhere when i get it. sometimes i get it when i am awake during the day too so i can really relate to what Brandy said.
