Im not quite sure if I have it.

Basically it's this electric vibration thing that starts at the top of my spine and goes all the way down my back.
I looked at L'hermittes' sign, it seems like that but doesn't do it when I put my chin down, it'll randomly do it some times its just quick others it can go on for like a half hour.
Also, L'hermittes' says it doesnt hurt, but mine pinches.
One last thing, some times my hands get really shakey, connected or no?

hi and welcome :) personally i would look at suspect nutrients first.. how is your diet? mine was very limited before i got diagnosed.. i had lhermitte's and other probs from various deficiencies which i've since figured out. to start with from what you've mentioned i'd be curious about b12 for the lhermitte's and magnesium/calcium balance for the shakes.
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
