Have you any had any strange sensations while meditating?
You bet ya buddy! I remember when I first started, I would get a real jittery feeling. Kinda like what you say is happening. Just practice. After a while you will realize that its your mind that is moving, hurting, etc. Not your body. I listend to Zen teachers say that over and over and read it in a thousand books and thought it was a bunch of crap, but its the honest truth. Just give it some time. The most important thing is not to get frustrated. If you are interested in reading a book I would recomend highly "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind" By Shunryu Suzuki. Its the best book I have ever read on the topic of Zazen. Best of luck to you, and dont get discouraged!
