who knows...the phantom knows...
I have had this since I have had my cell. In fact the other night I was on the sofa, felt it ring, 4 times, looked up at the mantle (I know to do this when I'm at home now..LOL) only to see my phone sitting there and not in my pocket.

when it happens, it is on the side that I keep the phone on, and the "buzzz" is about the size of my cell phone...but now, my phone doesn't even have to be on me! it just happens. LOL

Same vibration in left leg
Glad to see I wasn't the only one experiencing this! I'm a 39 year old male and I've been getting this mild vibration in my left outer thigh intermittently for a few months now. I keep thinking it's my cell phone and it's driving me nuts (and yes, I've moved the phone to another pocket but when I feel it I forget the phone is not there). I'm surprised no one on here has found an answer yet. Guess it's nothing serious but I'm going to keep researching. Very strange issue!

vibration in upper left thigh
I am keen to find out if you ever had this resolved. I am 38 and recently noticed the same is happening on my left thigh which is where I generally keep my mobile phone. If you ever got an informative material I would appreciate hearing from you. Regards Lemmington

Groin vibration
I get it too. Like a cat in my groin. Pulsating, phantom vibration. Starte two days ago. I'm curious if it just disappeared with other people. Many people posted, but few had repeat posts.

Let me know please!

And- on a medical site, someone recommended B12. I just took my multivitamin, sure hope it helps!

What a relief to know this is happening to others. I think it is physical and not psychosomatic. I don't care aobut getting phone calls that much. It is a dull vibrating sensation sometimes in my left leg, around my ankle or in my lower belly. I usually glance down to see if
I have rubbed against something rough or textured like corduroy. I thought I was crazy so I didn't say anything. I think it needs to be investigated medically.

This started happening to me about 2 weeks ago in my lower right leg. Can't see it but it is rhythmic and irritating. I also have epilepsy and wonder if it is associated, also have low Vitamin D levels. Thought I was going crazy but wasn't eager to tell a doctor in case they thought I really was crazy. Don't carry my cell in my pocket nor do I ever have it on vibrate but that is an excellent way to describe it. Someone please post a remedy or a reason for it happening.

Same here with eye twitch
I have the same here. I'm thinking it has to do with magnesium or potassium or something. I have the groin buzz that goes like an pager on vibrate Bzzz ... bzzz ... bzzz GRRR! Irritating. Then I have the eyelid twitch every now and then on the same side ... the left! I'm starting to take multi-vitamins to see is that helps.

Left thigh to foot vibrations !!
50 y/o wm experiencing same vibratory symptoms only in my left leg, days or nights at "its" whim. No pain, and unable to insonnate any movement or spasm in extremity when I feel the vibration !! Going on over a year now. I went to a massage therapist and she said it was blocked energy,...she was able to "stop" symptoms if I went back weekly! It might be worth a try to have others do the same through there massage therapist ! Good Luck....

Vibration in left leg
I've been getting it for a week now. I have it in my upper left thigh. I tried feeling it with my hand - nothing felt. I started dieting and exercising about 6 weeks ago, and lost 14 lbs, so I wonder if I can just feel the blood flowing through my veins/artery.

It is annoying. But, I don't have health insurance due to my job loss.

I'm a 34 year old female, I'm about 40lbs overweight, so I wonder if its due to me loosing weight or exercising. I contantly have my phone in my pocket, but never on vibrate.

Spasms getting stronger
I use a motorola RIZR (noticed someone else mentioned that) and I've been getting serious spasm in the area of my leg where my cell phone rests in my pocket. I used to get the imaginary vibrations, I think everyone does, but now it's a real twitch. It's getting more frequent and more powerful. I can even place my hand on my thigh and feel the twitching, so it's not like it's my mind playing tricks on me. It happens even when I don't have my phone with me.

I won't be using my cell phone for a while staring in couple weeks so I'll watch to see if it goes away.

Vibration in right thigh
Just want to add that I have also started experiencing the same phenomenon...like a cell phone vibration just where I sometimes carry my cell phone in my right front pants pocket. I thought it was from the car door lock alarm attached to my car keys, but like so many others, it happens even when I don't have my cell phone or keys in my pocket. It hasn't happened on the other leg. Mine is only intermittent...not painful, just weird. Would love to know what's causing it.

leg vibration
Wow this is amazing...I thought it was just me.
I would describe it as others have..feels like a cell phone is buzzing in my right thigh/groin area. I carry my cell phone in that pocket, but not on vibrate! So has anyone gone to a doctor and gotten a diagnosis?/

Vibrating , twitches, spasms
I think for the most part we are suffering from some form of anxiety. Things get on top of us, miff us off - we're hanging on waiting for something, an answer, a divorce..tired from always trying and getting so little reward, getting older, falling apart, past our best. We only live once and never get a chance to feel how it should be, we are always changing - new sensations seem like warning signs for something far more serious. I get the left leg vibration, have it now...and it's right after a bad fight with my family, full of guilt, regret etc.. and pop! Muscle twitches, and the leg fires up again. I think there is more going inside of us than we ever realise. Mental health\well being has a strong hidden effect on our physical selves - at least I've noticed when things seem bleak, or not quite on an even keel, it's like open season on little bugging things, from eye floaters to just feeling drained. Life is wearing us down, and we have so much to be paranoid about. Accepting that is what I'm going to try and do - ignoring these symptoms really does make them go away.

Vibrating leg
Spoke to a friend of mine who is a doctor. He said this condition pre-dates cell phones. He said that is is from a potassium and magnesium deficiency. Started eating bananas and made sure to take my calcium and magnesium and it seems to have gone away.

Vibrations
vibrations - I have experienced the vibrations for almost 7 years. It started in my right foot and ankle and now happens in various places of my right leg.

A neurologist did a full blood work up and tested for MS. The blood work showed a deficiency of serum ferritin. The DR suggested I take iron supplements. It helped. When I take large doses the sensations seems to stop and then I forget to take the supplements. When the sensations return, I start taking the supplements again.

I also experienced a large acoustic neuroma on my right side. I often wonder if there is any correlation.

I do experience a lot of stress in my work and get little exercise.

Cell phone buzz feeling
Thanks everyone, Mine started two days after I set my new motorolla cell phone to vibrate, However like everyone in here I was surprise to see as many people with these symptoms . Also I noticed when I make a sudden moved or gesture with harm it hurts, I knew I was a nutrition problem ( I rarely drink water) I bought some One a day supplements at wal mart, everything is gone now -so far I'm two weeks without feeling this cell phone buzz on my penis.

vibration right leg
The internet is amazing.. I have been experiencing the same vibration for a couple of weeks now and for the heck of it decided to see if there was any information on the internet. I am amazed at how many people are experiencing the same feeling. Feels exactly like my cell phone is going off. Always in the same location, right side, pocket area. Personally, don't think it has anything to do with my cell phone.. just feels exactly like it and is driving me crazy.
