Why Does My Knee Vibrate?

You may experience a sensation of vibration on your knee as you bend, squat, or go up or down stairs. This sensation is called crepitus and it's usually felt when a bone or ligament rubs against another bone in the knee. It can be caused by many things, including osteoarthritis or a kneecap dislocation.

The knee and the leg have a lot of nerves. Signals from these nerves travel to the spinal cord that runs through your back, then up to your brain. So, if a nerve is damaged or irritated in any way in the knee area, it can affect your ability to feel light touch, temperature, vibration, and pain.

Vibrating sensations in the knee can also be caused by a number of other medical conditions, such as essential tremor disorder or Parkinson's disease. It can even be a sign of multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune disease that causes the body's immune system to attack parts of the central nervous system, which leads to lesions, or damaged areas, in the brain and spinal cord.

Depending on the cause of your twitching, you can follow different treatment strategies. For example, if your twitching is caused by stimulants or caffeine, you should stop drinking them. If your twitching is related to a nutritional deficiency, you can make changes in your diet and see if that helps. If your twitching is due to an underlying health condition, you'll need to get medical help.
