Question: I am experiencing a vibrating sensation whenever I bend by head forward. I experience this sensation down by neck, across my shoulders and down both arms - to my hands? No pain but it is annoying and disconcerting.

Thanks

Hello, and thanks for your question.

You need an in-person neurological examination. A sensation such as this might be caused by an impingement on one of the the nerves exiting your cervical spine. This can be assessed via examination and follow up with an MRI of the spine. I recommend visiting a doctor in-person to examine you and to consider further imaging such as an MRI.
