Default Buzzing in Head

Does anyone know if hearing and feeling a buzzing in the head can be a symptom of MS?

Thank You.

Buzzing can be a symptom, though I've never experienced it my head..I take that back ~ I do if I stand up too fast & my blood pressure takes a nosedive (buzz/headrush)..I feel it in my legs quite a bit though. My car stalled out while parked 2x today, and I didn't notice right away cause my legs still felt the vibration I thought was the running car..Geesh..

Thank You.
I had a buzzing sensation in my neck last year around this time, while I was also experiencing l'hermitte's sign (electrical shock sensation that goes from your neck to your hands/and or feet)

So, yeah, it might be. I cant tell you for sure tho.

Yes, it can.

Can you describe it a little more though because I'd hate for you to assume this is MS when it could be something more serious.

Is there anything that triggers it, ie. can you "make" it happen? If you can, does it stay only in your head (and where)? Are there other sensations that accompany it, i.e. dizziness, full head feeling, etc.?

I think I know the feeling though.

I feel almost a vibration in my head when I hear the buzzing. For a long time I have had 'ringing' in my head. It's like it is something that has progressed in the last few days. I don't know if it is something cause by one of the lesions and I worry about if it is ms related what it could lead to.

Thank you for you response. The great thing about this site is I learn so much from the experiences of others. I am thankful for all of you who are so willing to share.

I read this after I submitted my previous message. It seems to worsen when I move around, particularly move my head. I don't really have other symptoms with it... no congestion, dizziness, pain.... just buzzing and vibration.

Thanks

If you move your head directly down, or circle it (like neck-roll exercises), does it come on? After doing this several times, does it stop?

Does it kinda make you feel sick to your stomach?

Does the sensation reach down to other parts of the body?

The ringing is tinnitus, and can happen because of MS, or because of medications. It can get worse during a flare.

Are you experiencing anything else new right now, other then the buzzing and ringing?

My other symptoms are actually mild right now. I am having some numbness and burning down my right arm. I'm not sure if the buzzing is worse at that time. I'll be paying more attention. It's one of those things that has recently come up and seems new, so trying to figure it out... I try not to dwell too much, but am starting to be somewhat more aware of things since my dx because you never know when something important might be cropping up that would eventually need further attention. I appreciate your thoughts and am thankful for the input.

also, it doesn't go down to other parts of my body, and does not make me sick to my stomach...

It could be l'hirmettes, but presenting differently. I have had various forms of that, all feeling entirely different from each other.
