I get that ALL the time! Sometimes it's just totally random and involuntary and then other times it happens voluntarily if I bend my head/neck forward. My neuro says it's L'Hermitte's Sign, which is apparently really common in MS. When it really gets going, the buzzing shoots up into my feet and up to my knee. Sometimes it's also in my hands - starts at the fingers and travels up.

As a total aside - I used to think it was really scary but now it's actually sort of one of the funnier symptoms I have. My partner says he can tell when I'm feeling the buzzing because I start bending my head forward and grimacing. As stupid as this sounds, I've kept myself amused on many a road trip seeing if I could coordinate the buzzing with music on the radio :D

LOL, I entertained myself with my L'Hermittes much in the same way once I got over the "ACK WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME???" panic. ;) I'd forgotten that I did the same bending the head trying to keep with the beat of the music as well haha. Too funny!
