Strange sensation in lower leg and foot

Hi all. I was wondering if any of you experience a sensation of wetness, like spilled water on the skin of your lower leg and foot. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does, I check and see where the water came from, and of course, there is none! I don't think I have sciatic problems, although I do have pain and stiffness in one and/or both hips when I first start walking to work.

MKB,

That feeling is very typical for nerve problems, i.e, sciatica. Sciatica is not a disease in itself but a symptom of something else wrong. You should see either a neurosurgeon or orthopedic surgeon who has completed a spine fellowship and get some real answers.

I often feel like either my feet are wet (they're not) or I have warm water running down the leg (this is pretty creepy when it happens).

Please get checked out to be sure. smiley

Yep same here

Just before my foot started going numb I was getting the cold water sensation on the outside of my thigh! Have sense been diagnosed with a herniated L5/S1 disc that is pushing against the nerve. YOu don't want to wait on this as it can eventully cause permanent damage.

Any word?

I have the same "cold sensations" like water being poured on my left leg and foot. I had these sensations before for nearly a month- they stopped and started again a few days ago.

Did you find out what was wrong? So strange!

I would appreciate any further diagnosis details-
