Good morning ! Yes and yes.

My legs are heavy achy burning shooting pains most of the time, especially on waking so heavy feel like can’t move them at all.

Every now and again I do feel a buzzing just like you destibed, in the very top of my left leg, that’s the one I have the weakness and lose control of, after walking a short distance

Have you mentioned this to your neurologist yet? I shall on my next visit...keep me posted and stay positive.

Hello, yes I have had exactly this too, though for me it is on my left side. I get numbness and weakness in my arm & leg, plus sometimes a heaviness in my leg. Also the tingling/buzzing sensations. My specialist has acknowledged all this and it is written in my notes. It has been really debilitating over the past 6 months, but recently (as in the last 2 weeks) I have seen some improvement. The symptoms are still there, but much more muted. I have started taking a vitamin B complex & possibly this is making a difference? I don't know.

I hope you are doing okay today. Very best wishes to you.

Yeah I have the same feeling in both my legs and arms. I’m not sure what makes it better :/ I just pray that eventually it will

I have a buzz like that. But I feel it more in my head first. Like someone shook my head that fast that my brain is bouncing off my skull! Thank it rushes down my arm and leg.

I also get this burning feeling on my skin mainly near my scar across my tummy. Fatigue gets worse when that happens. Mind you. Iv always got fatigue.

I hope your doing well today x
