Hi there. I've been experiencing some perceived weakness in my arms for the past two weeks It came on very suddenly, started in my right arm and moved to my left within days. It seems to wax and wane throughout the day. I have not lost any strength, in fact I feel more energized and very strong. I have this feeling of internal jitteriness and while I have this perceived arm weakness I also have spasms and a buzzing electrical sensation. I do have cramping in my calves and sometimes toes will spasm so bad they twist and turn. Most of the spasms are actually in my legs, but I get them in my back, arms and chest as well, but no weakness to speak of (just the perceived weakness in arms. Occasionally I will get this vibration in my trunk/torso/hip area that feels like I had one of those electrical massage devices inserted into me. Major vibrations!
