Weird cold, wet sensations!

I have a very strange new symptom happening! I feel like a have a wet spot on my leg, but when I check, my pants are totally dry. Sometimes it's a very small area, other times it feels like my whole butt is wet! I even asked my husband to make sure, because it feels so real! Nope, dry as a bone. It moves around, mostly my butt or legs, but the other evening the left side of my face had a cold sensation for about an hour, then it went away.

It's very irritating, but is it MS? Anyone else experienced this?

  • Hi Taosgirl!

    I've experienced thinking I had a wet spot on my legs but not a cold spot. I also experience the feeling that a bug is crawling on me when nothing is there. That can happen anywhere on my body. MS does some strange things!

  • I have that feeling a lot. It makes me wonder all the time if it really happened. Mine goes down my inner thigh, lol, so it feels like I pee myself. I always check it out....and again dry. Instead of cold mine is a warm trickle that starts off in the middle thigh and dribbles down just above my knee. I also have that feeling of bugs crawling on my skin or under my skin. Nothing is there. would make my day if it was a bug...I would smash it and smile to myself. Ha! Got'em.

    Since on Gabapantin I noticed my symptoms slowing down. It's nice.


  • Thanks for the feedback @Raingrrl and @Stepinup! Sometimes I get a bad one and it feels like a whole glass of cold water is poured down my leg starting at the back of thigh and slowly makes it all the way down to my toes. Then it immediately turns to a terrible burning feeling in my whole leg. It only lasts less than a minute, total, and then I feel completely normal again (well, maybe normal isn't the word for me! Ha ha).

    Anyway, going to neurologist Thursday. I guess I was wondering if this is MS or spine issue, as I have that going on, too.

    The "bugs" are the worst! One time I thought a spider was crawling on my head and in my reaction to slap it to death, I ended up really hurting myself!

  • Good luck on Thursday. And keep us informed!

    Have a restful night


  • Hi Taosgirl omg l hate that feeling!!! Especially if you have company like l did. I wanted to cry, l didn't know what was happening 😥 In my case it was part of a bad reaction to Baclafin. As soon as that was out of my system, the feeling was gone!

    I'm glad your seeing your Neuro Thursday ☺ Hopefully he can help you out with that. Like Stepinup said gabapentin or Lyrica might help.

    Make sure your keeping a journal of your symptoms, when they started, how long they last, so on and so forth☺ and any questions you have, cause if your anything like me, you'll forget as soon as you get there 😁


  • I get "water" running down my leg all the time, but of course it is completely dry. And don't get me started on the bugs! I can feel a bug on my neck most often, but they happen anywhere. I can't tell you how many imagined bugs I have slapped 😆. All part of this bizarre disease. Now watch, one day I will probably have a brown recluse spider on me and ignore, it will bite me for sure!

  • 😂

  • Taosgirl Yes it is. I have had the wet spot on my butt cheek and dripping water on my leg (that was not really there), isn't the brain awesome!
