For as long as I can remember, I'd had "spazzes." I'll either: shake, as if it's a cold chill, throw my elbo back, or kick. My head will always ***k to a side. It happens 3-8 times a day. They aren't violent and do not affect my life. It only happens when I'm stationary. Any thoughts?

  • it's definitely not seizures, I'm completely aware of everything that happens, and it's only for a second.and it doesn't quite feel like tourettes either.This is also a random part but when it happens, I get a rumbling sound in my head, like thunder.

  • I was on here researching what the possible causes could be for the fact my right leg goes numb from the top of my knee cap all throughout my leg but juuust above the top of my knee it's itchy. I dont have a rash, it's a major problem for me but it doesnt happen unless i am sitting still if I walking around I cant really "feel my leg" as it's tingling constantly.I am a 36 yr old male in very good shape and I dont drink, smoke or anything. I can't for the life of me figure out whats wrong...ANYHOW... as soon as I saw your post I had to reply, My mother who's only 57 and in very good shape herself had the exact symptoms (very eerie for me to read actually) your symptoms and she was misdiagnosed by not one or two but 3 doctors being told that she had Lou Gehrigs Disease or A.L.S. that disease has no known cause, cure or medications that can do much for a persons life, so for 2 years plus she believed she was going to die. For some bizarre reason I begged her to see a holistic doctor, a very highly acclaimed one who's a close friend of Dr. Raymond Weil, anyhow... low and behold my mother had a severe inner ear infection, and it was the entire cause of her problems. As simple as it may sound and should be caught by a doctor, it wasn't. I strongly urge you to take what I say as a very highly possible reason for your symptoms and go see an ear specialist and remember you're paying them so be certain you demand they do a thorough examination because her symptoms appeared exactly as yours are. The only way her problem was corrected was by an inner ear operation. Once I took her to the holistic doctor and then back to her regular doctor thats when he found her major inner ear problem.I really hope you see an ear specialist, not just your every day doctor. You'll thank me later i'm sure. Good Luck
