Often this is caused by a back problem pinched nerves or disc problems

Re: why does my leg feel like it has water running down in it?

How old are you? Do you have other symptoms? Similar symtoms in other parts of hte body. Sometimes patients with multiple sclerosis or other nerve issues describe feelings of 'tingling' or 'muddiness' or 'crawling' ... running water may be a similar sensation.

Re: why does my leg feel like it has water running down in it?

I have this symptom of MS, I have had the feeling of hot water running down my right leg and it was very painful. My consultant prescribed Gabapentin which has sorted it out. I have to take it all the time or it comes back but I don't mind as long as I haven't got that horrible feeling.

I have this sensation in my left leg often. I always chalk it up to my abnormal thyroid levels. I also get fluid in the shin area of my leg too.
Which is one of the many symptoms of hypothyroid.

Re: why does my leg feel like it has water running down in it?

I'm sorry that you had that happen but it's nice to know that I'm not the only one. I started experiencing this within the last couple of weeks. It might have happened about 4 or 5 times so far and it only lasts for a few seconds. It seems so real that I always reach down and touch my lower leg to see if there's any water there.

One possible cause: I have read that large doses of B6 and B12 taken together can cause neuropathy. I do take a B complex tablet that contains both B6 and B12 but it's just enough to meet the RDA. My soymilk is also fortified with B12 but it's not a large amount either. Other than that, I have no idea.

But at least it hasen't happened for a few days now. How often does it happen to you and how long does it last?

Question Re: why does my leg feel like it has water running down in it?



a couple of years ago I would get the sensation that hot water was being poured on top of my foot. Now I keep getting it down the back of my left leg. Anywhere in between mid thigh and ankle. I too, think it feels so real you reach down to see if you are wet. Doctor looked at me like I was crazy when I described it, then just went on as if I hadn't brought it up.
Does anyone know what causes this? I see a lot of theories on here and hope one is correct or someone has more info on it. Thank you.

Me= breast cancer at 40, hysterectomy, overweight, taking Femara for 5 years, & 2 high blood pressure meds. If any of this is relevant please let me know.
