Inner Groin Vibration

About a couple years ago I started getting this weird vibration in my upper right inner groin crease where it meets the thigh area down deep inside. It does not happen all the time. Doesn't hurt at all. I have had nerve pain in that leg from my inner knee area (not my actual knee) up to that groin area and it hurt A LOT. MRI showed nothing wrong. Doctor said it was probably from nerve pain. I get that about twice a year and it can last a day or minutes. Maybe the vibration is from left overs from that??? I have no pain associated with the vibration. It last about 3 to 6 seconds and is rheumatically. I hate to go to a Neurologist and have them "guess" at what it is and waste my money for something I already know. Any doctors out there or others who have been diagnosed with the same vibration sensation? I do not have my cell phone on vibrate either and it does not ring that much. My vibration is on the inner side not the outer part. Any help is appreciated.

I am a 52 year old female and have been experiencing a faint vibration in  my right cheek.  I keep thinking it's my cell phone ringing in my back pocket when it's not.  Very rythmic humming type feeling 2 sec long, 3 sec pauses between.  I only feel this when sitting down..not sure if it happens when I am standing or walking and I just can't feel it.  I also have intermitant neuophathy on the bottoms of both feet but mostly the left.   So glad to hear others are also feeling these, thought I was crazy!

Hi, Thank you for your question. Your groin vibration symptoms could be related to nerve compression, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, Vitamin B complex deficiency, neurological disorder or if you are any vibration jobs (like drilling etc). Nerve studies and nerve test may be helpful to further evaluate the condition. I would recommend evaluating the possibilities here with the help of a doctor. Further referral to a neurologist or endocrinologist may be required to assess the condition. Hope this information proves helpful to you. Take Care & Regards!!!

No, I don't use sex toys, but I have been experiencing peculiar, irregular episodes of vibration sensations in the rectal/prostate/hip joint (as near as I can pinpoint them) neighborhood. I am a 60-year old male. The vibration sensation is of short duration, in my estimation maybe one second or one and a half seconds per pulse with a variable interval between pulses, although sometimes they have been quite regular at about 5 to 8 seconds between pulses. The vibrations are only discernible through the nerves local to the area, not through the fingertips.

I have been having similar symptoms, hence my search for this occurrence. It happens daily and honestly, I thought it was due to my cell phone in my jeans pocket only it wasn't there. Im thinking it could be vascular but really am just guessing....not driving me crazy but is definitely a new thing to me!

  I too have a vibration in my inner right thigh area, similar symptoms to      
  everyone else.
  It suddenly came on one day and is intermittent.
  I cannot find a reason for it to suddenly occur.
  I am fit and I walk a lot. There is no pain it is just annoying.
  Can anyone come up with an explanation please?

Similar symptoms here. Not annoying, but just weird. Very slight vibration like you would expect from a cell phone, but I wasn't wearing my cell phone. General groin area and very subtle, but pretty constant this afternoon. It seems to have gone away for the time being. Good to hear that I am not alone on this, but of course hope it's not serious for any of us.

I have a theory. I too have experienced this vibration.  I also thought it was my cell phone at first, but it wasn't even in my pocket. I have been thinking about this for quite some time and may have a possible answer.  I don't mean to sound crass or inappropriate but would like to hear from others to see if this is something that they expeirence.  It seems as though the tingling would be coming from a nerve, but then why would it be tingling.  Sometimes when my husband and I are being intimate he may use his finger to stimulate the clitoris and then for penatration.  He pushes up with a lot of pressure once he has penetrated.  This is at my request.  I wondered if I have him pushing so hard that it has irritated a nerve. Can anyone else relate?

I have googled this as I have woken up with this today. This is after being intimate with my partner last night (a little rougher than usual) and also used a vibrating sex toy.

The vibration is constant and becoming a little annoying, never felt anything like this before. Not sure what to do about this, maybe do the same again and if it's a trapped nerve see if I can untrap it?

Wow... And I thought I was alone with this "cellphone vibration I'm the pocket syndrome" (CVITPS) looked in several blogs on the subject and found no real explanation, reasons for, or causes.   What was really surprising there were no replies offering explanation from the medical community as to cause and cure for CVITPS.  Appears no end to those who suffer with this problem. Please some one from the medical side
Chime in.  Thank you

I just started experiencing this vibration too. Thinking my cell phone was in my pocket and it wasn't. It's a second or 2 and rythematic no pain either. I've been diagnosed with restless leg syndrome several years ago and have been on lyrics for several years. Was very surprised when I googled and found all of these comments. Thanks for all of the info.

Please contact me. These vibrations started in groin. It goes to upper back and whole body some times. I have them daily. I can't have a MRI , so it is hard plus Drs are short of knowing this !!! This is the only place that I have found besides a site that closed some years ago. Mind now in stomach too. It has been on and off for 6years and took me off all meds to see what was what. Mine seems to go with bad neck and spine. I use to wake to solid fright.  Now I try to cope but I know it is not all fear . I am on a med for live nerves, but this vibranting comes whether it rains or shines!!'n I am having really bad right now so I will have to close. Please. Get back to me ty

Ps. This feels like another ants or bugs marching through. Yes sounds crazy ! U don't notice when u first get,, then it really is scary when u lie down or sitting is worse !  I cope by laying on my side and hubby rubbing me on other , not so much to help the nerves as I call them but to distract from it! This makes u feel nuts. I can't imagine being young and going through this. This has nothing to do with anxiety,, but u can dang sure have it when this gets worse . Having found sites gives people hope. I so have scatic nerve. Yes I spelled wronged
Just to clarify - I am a female and have had a constant buzzing/vibrating sensation in my groin area. Everything I read seems to be prostate related towards men. I didn't have these sensations until I lifted something too heavy (I have spinal and lower back injuries from an auto accident 10 years prior). I re-injured my back and the vibrating sensation started (never had that prior to this). It is ongoing and rarely stops.  When a neurologist was testing my arms and legs because I complained of weakness after lifting that heavy object I mentioned this vibration in my groin area. He said it sounded like inflammation but was in a hurry to do the other tests so my question went unanswered. He seemed to have been the only one who understood what I was saying. I tried to get in to discuss this further and his nurse practitioner refuses to let me schedule an appointment with him. She didn't know what he was talking about. I was told that I have inflammation and arthritis around my tailbone so I am left guessing that is possibly causing the vibration. I tried injections into the SI and to the right and left of my tailbone which left me practically immobile and in horrible pain for months. I can't get into a neurologist without a referral and my doctors claim they've never heard of this "vibrating" sensation and refuses to deal with it much less give me a referral. I've tried ice, changing my diet, etc. Nothing works. I feel, though, I have at least narrowed it down to inflammation but how to get treated for it is frustrating when no one will even discuss it with me medically.
