Re: i have a feeling like there is water running down the back of my leg what is it

I get a similar feeling on the front of my left leg. Mine is caused by a disc pressing on nerves and then rupturing. I had lost most of the use of my left leg when they did surgery and I had a 50/50 chance of recovering use. Thankfully, after 10 months of therapy I have a "normal" leg with slight shortened lift height noticeable only if I am very tired. The one effect that never left was the weird slithery feeling down the front of my leg. I had never noticed it until the major pain and damage was relieved. I had the surgery in June 2001, so I figure this will always be with me. My neurosurgeon said this was a nerve that healed probably as much as it could. It is weird, but I will take it over the other possiblity!

The feeling of wetness on my leg was what I felt when my meralgia parasthetica first started. MP is an entrapment of the nerve in your outer thigh. My wetness feeling went from there to tingling and finally to burning pain.

My pain is down the outer thigh, so if yours is down the back it is another nerve and not what I have. If it persists or worsens, I'd see your doctor about it.

Good luck
