I am sorry to hear about your medical problems. The abnormal sensations of water dripping are due to paresthesia seen in peripheral neuropathies or vascular pathologies. Hence peripheral vascular pathologies like deep vein thrombosis have to be ruled out either by angiograms or by dopplar studies. There are several causes for peripheral neuropathies including diabetes, hypothyroidism, chronic involvement of liver or kidney, chronic alcohol use etc. Hypoparathyroidism too should be looked into apart from hypothyroidism.
Neck strain, spondylotic changes in cervical vertebrae, bone disease or bad posture should be looked into. Nerve infections as in lyme’s disease too should be investigated. Nerve conduction studies should be done along with blood tests for above mentioned disorders. Vitamin B12 deficiency too should be looked into. Multiple sclerosis is another possibility but less likely in your case. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral.Take care!

I was lying in bed playing on my kindle when It feels like water is dripping on my arms and hands. It doesn't hurt its just weird. My arm was bone dry when this happened. iIt went on for a minute or so and then stopped and five minutes later it went on again. Can someone please explain what is happening? Im 11 years old.
I understood everything and thank her for her help.
Thank you for your thorough answer. This was very helpful to me. It made sense because I have problems with my neck. It calmed my fears. Thanks again.
Lyme disease is a good possibility. I have the bumps and the phantom water droplets.
