On Tuesday, Oct 2, I had a sudden onset of a cold sensation from my shin to my big toe , on the anterior aspect of my right leg. I am a nurse and deal with neurosurgeons and back problems on a daily basis. None of my pt have stated cold sensations as any of their symptoms. This is a continuous sensation and is still currently present. It is a cold wet sensation which feels like an ice pack is on my leg. What is going on???
I too have had this ice cold sensation in my left thigh and the top of my left foot. Almost feels wet and like you explain like an ice pack. I got no reasoable response from my Dr. he said it might be a pinched nerve but offered no remedy or further explanation. Sent me home feeling like an idiot! Have you been able to determine what the cause is? I have no known neurological problems that I am aware of. Been on B12 injections since 1978 for Chron's, and do take medication for the disease. I also have meniere's but I don't see how any of that can be the cause. Good Luck, keep me posted.
I am experiencing a similiar problem. Though mine began after a near miss knee injury while playing soccer. Mine is more cool than cold, and goes from my knee to my ankle along my shin. I don't believe the skin is actually cooler to the touch, but it "feels" cool under the skin if that makes any sense. Did you ever get any answers? I feel like I probably should see a doctor, but I think they'll just think I'm nuts.
I have too have recently been 'experiencing' this phenomenon, over the last week i have been getting what can best be described as cold breezes on a single part of my left thigh. No set rhythm, they happen at all times throughout the day, can last seconds or minutes. The skin is not physically colder to the touch, but it like someone has left the door open and a draught is hitting my leg. No pain, no other effect just damned puzzling and slightly annoying too
I too get an icy cold feeling. It feels like ice water running through my veins. Sometimes it is in my legs, lately it is like the "ice pack" you describe. However, not on my leg. It is at the base of my tale bone, slightly to the side. Sometimes I think it is slightly cooler to the touch but I am really not sure.
As I have also been experiencing some numbness and tingling sensations I am worried. I live in a remote area. Not many doctors and the ones close by really are not well versed. I have tried to research on the net, but haven't found anything. I don't want to drive hours to find a doctor who will tell me I'm nuts.
Any info would be helpfull!
I realize your post on this strange sensation was 2 years ago but I am experiencing the same thing you were or are and I was wondering if you ever found any answers or if it has gone away? This cold breeze like sensation is in the same area as you mentioned and has been going on for a few months now but I have not seen a Dr. as I'm sure they will tell me they don't know what the cause is and that would be even more frustrating.
Hi there, my name is chris and I also have this wet leg sensation. I have had this problem for about two years now. From what I can remember, this awful problem all started after my Dr. gave me antibiotics to fight off an infection. Could this bee the problem? I don't know but I'm trying to slove this mysterious problem.
I also have this strange sensation..I keep thinking its a cold wet spot on my outer thigh..like my pants had gotten wet there..I asked my massage person and she hasn't heard of anything like it..it just started about a week ago. Help?
I get a cold sensation on my front upper part of my right leg. It's just in a tiny spot, I don't feet it wet just so cold that it burns. Also no temperature change to the touch. It's now gotten to the point that it feels like a poke on the skin after it stops burning from the cold. it's weird to describe kind of feels like an ice pack is burning the skin when you leave it on for too long or without any tissue or towel underneath.
Hi Babbs. I see that you just posted your cold/wet problem this week (4/16). I too am experiencing this symptom. I have read all of the notes from others, however no one has posted a possible cause. Please, if you have any insight to this problem, please let me know. It is very annoying and going to the doctors has become laughable! Thanks, kate
