What causes vibration in the legs?

Answer

Involuntary trembling or vibration in the legs can may occur as the result of low blood sugar or excessive caffeine consumption. The side effects of some medications include trembling in various body parts, and neurological problems such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and stroke can also cause tremors.

Leg tremors have many different underlying causes, not all of which are chronic or serious. Many drugs, including amphetamines, psychiatric medications and corticosteroids, have the potential to cause leg tremors. Trembling is also a classic sign of hypoglycemia, in which blood sugar drops to an undesirable level. Magnesium and some other vitamins deficiencies may also cause trembling.

More serious underlying causes include various neurological issues and neurodegenerative diseases, such as stroke, chronic kidney disease and multiple sclerosis. Brainstem or cerebellum injury may also lead to the development of a tremor in the legs. Trembling may also manifest during the alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal process.

Before jumping to conclusions about any type of trembling, however, it is important to take into consideration the individual's state of mind, particularly if the leg tremor is unusual or intermittent. Excitement, fear and anxiety can all cause a person to tremble. If in doubt, it is always wise to consult with a medical professional.
