The Strange Case of the Vibrating Breast

PJ Hamel Health Guide January 03, 2010

    This is fascinating, PJ.  Thanks for doing the research on what might be going on in these cases.  It's amazing how the human body behaves and how much we don't know despite all the research that is being done.

    I'm so glad I found this page. I had hoped to find an explanation; none found but at least there is validation. I have a lump in my right breast that I will admit I've been ignoring out of fear, denial, other priorities. I'm 43 and my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at 35, died at 46.

    I'm so glad I found this page. I had hoped to find an explanation; none found but at least there is validation. I have a lump in my right breast that I will admit I've been ignoring out of fear, denial, other priorities. I'm 43 and my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at 35, died at 46. As terrified as I am, I also became homeless around the time I found this lump. The last several months have been dedicated to finding a job & a home. Ironically, I just got my health insurance and scheduled my physical which is in a few days. I don't expect my doctor to believe that this lump vibrates up to 15 times a day for 2-5 seconds. The vibrating has been going on for about 2 weeks. Just a few days ago I started bleeding only 15 days into my cycle, which had always been very regular. The bleeding was heavy for a day and a half, then stopped suddenly, only to start up again 2 days later. This time even heavier, I'm talking a super plus tampon every half hour until about 10 hours in I became faint, nauseous and had cold sweats. I thought I was going to die. It stopped abruptly again after less than a day (yesterday). I am weak, my doctor's appointment is the day after tomorrow. I can't help but feel that the vibrating and bleeding are connected. I will repost when I find out what's going on. If anyone has any input, I'd appreciate hearing your story.

    Peace and Love,

      D, I'm so glad you're going to see a doctor; I'm sorry you didn't realize earlier that there's a government program that will pay for diagnostic mammograms and subsequent treatment for women without health insurance. I'm sure the doctor will run through the usual tests to figure out what's up with both the lump, and the bleeding; I suspect the vibrations won't concern the doctor much, as they're not a symptom typical of any particular breast or "female" issue. But one way or the other, hopefully you'll be able to get to the bottom of this and get some treatment. Best of luck, and remember - we're here for you. PJH

    I didn't even start by searching for "Vibrating breast" because it seemed too odd, specific, and likely to produce undesirable results. I started by searching for "vibration in chest" and many results were about heart palpitations or silent reflux (a version of acid reflux). Also mentioned were breast cancer, hormones and obesity. I am peri-menopausal and am on my cycle now, but I have no history of those other problems and get regular checkups and screenings. I actually feel this in the outer area of my left breast. I have been under a lot of stress and have recently switched from swimming to jogging for my excercise, as I did last fall. At first, it seemed so much like when my phone is on vibrate, but I keep that in my pants pocket. It was so mild I wasn't sure it really happened. I even thought maybe my clothing was just pulling against my bra in some odd way. But for the last few days this happened several times a day. I have been wearing a name tag that uses a very strong magnet. It doesn't seem to be a likely cause, but I'm switching the tag to the right side anyway. What an odd thing! Thanks for this article.

I actually looked down at my breast to make sure I didn't have imy cellphone on me. I do however feel it's related to anxiety. I had a disagreement with an employee three times this week, making me upset. I also felt heart palpitations.  Major coincidence that I starting taking sublingual B-12. I was hospitalized last August 2012 for severe anemia. I had 3 blood transfusions and cancer was ruled out.  I was advised to take B-12 along with iron. I started to feel my anemia symptoms coming back. On Tuesday (April 30) I started to take B-12 again. I hope it goes away. It's a weird sensation indeed.

    I and others in my house get that vibration sensation in other areas of the body.  It IS as if a cell phone is buzzing in the pocket when it isn't.  I'll go through periods of time when it happens near the crease of my leg, the top of my leg or near my back pocket.  And it's happened on my lower leg (where I never carry a phone).

     

    Although not as often, it's happened to one of my girls and my husband, too.  I do suspect that it is normal muscle twitches that we just relate to as feeling like a cell phone.  How do our bodies/brains morphs that into feeling like a cell phone?   Are our brains adapting?  Or our bodies?  Maybe that's movie stuff for the making!

For that last couple of days my right breast is vibrating.  If it was not for the fact that men report this same sensation in their own breast, I would have thought perhaps it had something to do with me entering menopause and my mammary glands shutting down for good. But, I am pretty sure that is not the problem for the guys who have felt this buzzing.  So, it will continue to wake me at night and bug the heck out of me until it decides to stop. Then of course I expect the left to start back up again.  I hope someone comes up with an answer.  I need an answer.  Cannot just let it go and say no one knows because we have lots of smart folks who are here to answer these questions and maybe they just have not gotten to this one yet... :/

    I had a Vacuum Assisted Breast Biopsy on my left breast on Friday, May 14, 2010 at the Steeple Chase Cancer Center of Somerville, NJ. Prior to the procedure the attending nurse explained that during the procedure the doctor would be placing tiny steel clips in the areas of concern as markers once the samples had been extracted. This, they explained, was so that if it becomes necessary to revisit the area in the future and xray will reflect where samples were previously removed.

     

    Since the procedure, I have experienced slight vibrations in the related breast (left); and, only in that breast. The vibrations only last a few seconds, and I have not discovered a correlation to any specific cause. The first time I noticed it I was moving around my home in different areas and it did seem to follow text messages that arrived on my mobile phone. That may have been a coincidence though. The next time I noticed it was later that night while heating something in the microwave. Naturally I was concerned at that point. The following day, I noticed that the vibrations continued at work, but did not necessary follow mobile phone activity or any other electronic device. I work in IT and am surrounded by electronic equipment throughout the day.

     

    My follow up appointment with my primary care doctor is next week, Wednesday, May 26, 2010, and I also have an appointment with the surgeon who prescribed the procedure in early June; but, I may call the Steeple Chase center to inquire about the vibrations rather than wait until then.

     

    Have a little peace of mind that if you have experienced this you are not only not alone, but you are not going CRAZY.

     

    Stay tuned for an update

    I have tried the OTC twice.  After about 3 days I get the vibrations.  After ceasing the medication the vibration goes away in about 36 hours.  No one has been able to explain this to me and my insurance company will no longer pay for Proton Pump Inhibitor prescriptions.

I am 1 year survivor now and so far scans are good after having Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Praying for a cure for all! (I do have neuropathy in hands and feet from the Taxol and so far that has not gotten any better.

    This is so ironic that I just have to comment :)  I am a breast cancer survivor, 6 months of clear scans now after stage 4 IDC, wooohooo!  I have never had my breast vibrate but in the past couple of weeks my right foot has been vibrating quite often.  I asked my Oncologist about it thinking he would say it was a side effect of the chemotherapy I had endured  but he looked at me like I was crazy.  He suggested I soak my feet in warm water???  I guess they feel its better to suggest something rather than to say they have no clue, huh?  Great topic, maybe someone can shed some light on the subject for us.  After my own research I found that "stress" may be the culprit.  Hope the new year find nothing but blessings for all of you.

      Kirsten, if you had Taxol or Taxotere, the vibration in your foot may be a result of that. Many women report tingling feet and hands after a taxane-based chemo... Anyway, I hope it abates soon. And best of luck to you - here's to better health in 2010! PJH

      I did have chemo treatment with both Taxol and Taxotere and experienced a lot of tingling and numbness (among pain and swelling also) during and after my treatments.  Most of that has subsided aside from my feet still looking like little sausages, lol.  What I am experiencing now is much different.  Its as if you were to put your feet on your...

      Probably you're right, Kristen - long-lasting side effect. Eight years later, my trunk still itches so badly I wake up many mornings with scratches from belly to neck where I've been scratching itches all night... And yes, here's to a great 2010! PJH

Alavert, design treatment is ecological for an flower to investigate, but when a consumer comes it must register the parser in its scenario very that the two price investigators have the tough original parchment as their boilerplate. With respect :eek:, Dempsey from Guinea.

    strange that I read this. I had this happen two days ago. i didn't know what to make of it. I had a lump removed from the opposite breast about 5 years ago, only because I knew it was there and had to know. My lump was never seen on a mammogram not and ultrasound, only by self examination. So, I would say, if you are of age, be checked, but most of all, we...

So, I would say, if you are of age, be checked, but most of all, we know our bodies and we know if something isn't right and we should be diligent about our care, no matter what the first test reveals.

    That is so strange!

     

    Vibrating breasts? None here, so far. I like the explanation of the magnetic field and laptop.
