Question wet sensation bottom left foot

The last 5 days i have been noticing a wet sensation on the bottom of my left foot. It is always in the exact same place on the sole of my foot. I have searched the internet everywhere for some sort of reasoning as to why i am getting this unusual sensation, but havent found any answers AT ALL! Can someone please help?!

Unless there is, in fact, an area of wetness, such sensations would have to be considered a derangement of sensation, and I would think that neurologic issues should be considered by the doctor whom you choose. You are not likely to find these answers on the Internet, and/or without a physical examination. Be prepared to offer a cogent and detailed history to the doctor, as you know far more about the details of what you are feeling than any doctor might. But don't necessarily get hung up on or married to your insistence that the feeling is specifically one of wetness. I have personally NEVER heard of that complaint, and there may be other words which better describe it and which might give the doctor more insight.

Question Re: wet sensation bottom left foot

I was really surprised this morning when I did a search and found your thread, because for the last 3, maybe 4 weeks, I too have been having this strange 'wet' sensation on the bottom of my right foot, and there is nothing there!

At first, I thought I had a small hole in the bottom of my shoe, causing a 'draft' down there. But there was no hole! My foot was completely dry and warm. No wetness, only this sensation of it, like a dampness, like a slight breeze blowing across damp skin. But like I said, my foot is completely warm each time, and always dry!! WEIRD!

I have not been ill, but the ONLY thing I can think of that has changed for me in the last month is that I have started taking cholesterol medicine for the first time in my life. Lisinopril, I believe. I am a 40 year old woman. Other than that, there have been no changes in my life, or health that I can think of.

Are you by chance taking some medicine too? Do you think it is from the cholesterol medicine?

I'm the poster above, 'unregistered.' I tried to login that day and had problems. The medicine is lovastatin. I am still having the mysterious sensation, except for the last couple of days, and maybe that is because of my cycle? I dunno.... weird.....

I have been feeling the same thing (a sudden sensation of having my right foot wet) for the last 4 or 5 days. It lasts for a few seconds. At first it was just a couple of times, but now the frequency is increasing. I checked with a doctor firend who answered the same as the reply above: if nothing is evident look for neurological problems, but I keep searching. The fact that you two have the same problem indicates that it is not that unusual and that we should keep searching for an explanation.

Good luck (and Merry Christmas).

Default Re: wet sensation bottom left foot

Hello again. I've been meaning to report back for days now, but kept getting sidetracked. Wanted to say that the wet feeling on the bottom of my foot has diminished a lot. Some days, I don't notice it at all. I had nearly ran out of my cholesterol meds, so I was taking one pill every 3 days or so, to make them stretch..... I called in for a refill, but have not had a chance, for over a week now, to pick them up! Meanwhile, for a couple of days, the wet sensation started on my ring finder of my left hand! It was so weird!!! Only a coupe of days, not back to back, and then again for a short while yesterday. It is so odd. Since it is cold here now, I've been keeping my feet in my warm house shoes, so it's harder to tell about the wet sensation on my foot. I really think it has something to do with the cholesterol medicine, because since I have ran out, I have not really noticed much. Not much, except for my finger, and that didn't last either.

When I can finally pick up that refill, I will report back and let you guys know if these werid sensations start again afte I resume taking the medicine.

Look folks. There are only three situation which I can come up with which could account for feeling one's feet to be wet:
1. The feet ARE wet
2. A neuropathy is causing it (most likely cause)
3. The sensation is hysterical.

So, the corresponding recommendations would be:
1. Stop stepping in water, or find the cause of the wetness or get a towel
2. See a neurologist.
3. See a head doctor.

But posting to say, "me to" will get you nothing but sympathy.

This is a question for the Foot Doc... I am without doubt that my husband is having neurological effects from a head trauma in August 2008. He has now returned f(or the most part) to "normal". There are subtle differences only. We cannot afford to go back to the neurologist but now he tells me of symptoms he's had all along but did not see the significance at the time that we saw the neurologist for his follow-up visit after he was dismissed from the hospital.
He is having a constant sensation on the bottom of his feet. He says it feels like he's standing in cool water, says it's very refreshing but weird.
***
***My question is this....should we be worried about this? I know you must recommend we see a specialist to find out for sure but, then again, we HOPE this is nothing to worry about!

Neuropathic symptomatology can be of many and diverse etiologies, and whether his is related to previous head trauma, I am not qualified to say, though it would be my general feeling that neuropathies mediated at a brain level would be unlikely to manifest solely on the bottom of the feet. Certainly, no matter the cause, such sensations as you describe may be of concern on various levels. Whether or not it is something to worry about or whether it may herald and portend something more serious to his generalized health and well-being is something beyond my knowledge and expertise. Based on his previous history, I would encourage him to obtain an evaluation from someone qualified to offer a definitive opinion.

Thank you for your time. We will eventually seek advice from his neurologist as soon as finances permit.

I've been experiencing a distinct "cold" feeling bilaterally in the arches of my feet that lasts for HOURS. I suppose it could feel "wet", but I'd describe it more as feelings of cold. It started after a strange pain I had behind my right knee (not my left so that's wierd)...I'm turning 40, so everyone just say's "your getting old!" Regardless, I'm going to my doc.

I have had the same sensation for about a year or so- exact same wet warm/cold foot. One consult with a nurse practitioner (ugghh....can I ever see a "real" doctor?) and they suggested perhaps a surge of hormones. My mother also gets this same sensation and she had tumors on her pituitary and adrenal glands... not sure if there is any link to either suggestion- but worth looking into perhaps?

New post from Oklahoma. I entered into the search engine "cold sensation on bottom of foot" tonight and was surprised to find this dialogue that describes exactly what I've been experiencing. It started about two weeks ago, and now occurs several times an hour. I take no medication and am otherwise healthy. When it started, I would crawl around the carpet to find the wet spot I'd stepped in. Thanks for the suggestion to see a neurologist - scary.

Smile Re: wet sensation bottom left foot

Hi there,

well I am glad to find this thread re the wet sensation and I am little stunned this seems to be so odd and yes hard to find anything online about when usually there is anything and everything you ever wanted topic wise online.

sorry foot doc but I am posting because ME TOO !!!

I have a wet sensation on my big toe on the left. It began with a fall that resulted in 4 months of numbness in the toe on and off and then the wet feeling. I really paid attention when it was a strong sensation of wet to the toe in a rain storm and I thought I had a defective shoe but I was wearing brand new water proof shoes with sheep skin lining. My feet were toasty and dry .. so it is a brain or nerve thing. I now notive the wet sensation lots of the time with or without rain and with or without shoes on. it is happening more and more of the time and wet is the proper descrition. I could say cold but it feels more of a cold wetness and not simply cold.. How strange !! i have to say I am glad to find others that this has happened to.

I see my nurologist monday so if i have time will bring it up and report back here what he says. For me the guessing is a little easier as I have bad spinal issues that cause me lots of nerve pain and sensations . I am blaming my spine for now since I do have a whole host of other pains and sensations from my ribs to me elbow to limbs athat come from mutiple spine issues . I am blaming the same though I really don't know what is happening with this and have never felt the same sensation anyplace else. Numbness is common to me and pain more so , but not the wet feeling which is very bizzare (Note all do not happen at once w/ the toe . Each sensation happens seperately so sometimes the toe is numb and others it hurts and sometimes I get the wet feeling). I am also mystified because this fall that started th whole thing .. well, I fell off my kitchen counter and was very lucky to get no severe injuries but there are 2 tiny spots.. the toe is one and the other is one spot on the other leg on my shin but very small .. that never stopped hurting & feeling strange since.. Why would that happen either ? so there are some odd things happening with me and I am so curious what is going on !!

~ alison

ps again, i am sorry to the foot doc as i don't mean to frustrate you with the "me too" post, but I am having indeed having a me too , I will be getting checked out as you recommend, & i just have to say that I do think there is value to people sharing like experiences until they can get other sorts of answers especially when something seems so strange )

My situation is somewhat different, but I get the feeling that I have just stepped into a warm wet spot (like maybe an animal has just urinated & it's still very warm) & I don't see it but I feel like I have stepped in it in my sock feet. I walk around the house in my socks, and it feels like I have actually stepped into warm water and I can feel it spreading like my socks are absorbing it & it last for a few minutes. Either or both feet on the ball of the foot. It happens maybe every two to three days. No new meds. Just sharing the info to let you guys know you aren't crazy, etc. I am not asking for your advice Foot Doc.

Yet another one here.
Started about 3 days ago.
44 year old male.
No meds, no pain, no injuries, no medical history.
Right foot - ball of foot.
Seems to be increasing from only a few feelings per day.
Now - even while sitting on the sofa.

Will be watching this thread to see if anyone posts any info to explain this.

thanks!

This wet sensation just started literally 15 minutes ago. I cannot explain this. I first checked the bottom of my foot to see what was going on, then I asked my wife to touch my feet to see if they are cold and she said not, then I walked along the carpet and also found not wet spots. I find this extremely weird. I am not on any meds, but take a multi vitamin and Vit C supplements regularly. I work out 5 days / week. I know the Foot Doc has already recommended some causes but I choose to post here in the event that someone has found anything out. I am going to get up now and test it again. Please share any findings / experiences. Thanks.

My husband has a constant cold, wet sensation (not actual, just a feeling) involving the entire foot area in both feet. It's necessary to rule out diabetes and circulation problems; and also have a nerve conduction test. Long story short - A very qualified neurosurgeon said that it is the sympathetic nerve ( husband has a slipped spinal disk; with no pain from that, but other symptoms). Surgery is performed on the hands with similar symptoms which is successful. However, surgery involving the feet is only a 50 percent success rate. Hope that helps some until you consult with your doctor; it's always better to mention to the doc to rule out any other serious problems.

Hello there....Foot Doc, not to insult your intelagence in the least, but I strongly disagree with what you have just mentioned, and definetly question your intalect. If all these people are expeiencing close to the same symptoms (I am as well) the wet sensation that is, then there clearly is a problem. Moreover I am quite sure all of these indivisuals would no if they were stepping in water! With the numbers of indivisuals experiencing this sensation increasing everyday I strongly suggest a deeper study should be conducted!!!!!!!!!

My apologies for being so tardy in getting back to you, but frankly, I no longer regularly read comments posted to this thread, as I think that I have said all that I wish to about it in my response with which you seem to take issue and which I reproduce below:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Excuse me as I cannot resist FIRST dwelling on a point of irony. I grant you that the ability to spell correctly is not a definitive measure of either intelligence or intellect, but when one makes a point of doubting someone's intellect and in so stating misspells "intellect" as "intalect," "intelligence" as "intelagence," "definitely" as "definetly," "experiencing" as "expeiencing," "individuals" as "indivisuals" and "know" as "no," such an assertion is indeed a WORKING DEFINITION of irony. I'm not going to get into a discussion of the significance or lack thereof of incorrectly spelling a word or two, but clearly, this example is beyond the pail.

But now that I have gotten THAT out of the way, I did not suggest that the ONLY cause of this problem would be actually stepping in water, although, it certainly could be one. In fact, I stated that the most likely cause would be some sort of neuropathy or sensory malfunction, and indeed, that, without doubt, is the cause of this problem in most if not all of these cases. So, what WAS your point??

So sorry, I must have hit a soft spot if you felt the desire to correct my grammer. I see the irony.... as I am questioning your intellect I have made a few spelling mistakes myself, so that would in turn would make you question my intellect! I am quite sure that I am not as educated as you, so SORRY again for the mistakes.

Now that I have THAT out of the way, I had wrote my last message not to make a point only to make a statement! I"ll give you a bit of honesty, I was offended when you stated that there was the possibility of our feet actually being wet, because I am sure anybody in there right mind would know if they were actually stepping in water! futher more, found it very rude coming from a DOCTOR that you think by people writing "me too" were looking for sympathy, pretty sure the only thing people on this site are looking for are anwsers, not SYMPATHY! To finish this message I end with, If you have stated the most likely cause to this problem is WITHOUT DOUBT a sensory malfunction or neuropathy in most of these cases then why did you feel the need to post that are feet may actually be wet or we should see a head doctor???

No, you did not hit a soft spot. I think that I made it entirely clear that I thought it appropriate to comment on your spelling ONLY because of the irony implicit in your having complained about my intellect, while misspelling much of your complaint. But you see, when someone does just that, one leaves him/herself open to such comments, much in the way in which when someone complains about having been criticized for what you termed "grammar" and in so doing misspells "grammar" as "grammer." as have you here, not to mention having misspelled, "further" as "futher" and "answers" as "answers" this time, you're really twisting my arm beyond reason, so PLUEEEZE stop. Again, as everyone misspells, albeit not to the extent the which YOU have, I do no wish to make this a rant or commentary on spelling, but the point to be made is that within the context of your comment, misspelling, I believe, is a valid point for criticism BECAUSE of the I R O N Y exhibited.

But, alas . . I'm only toying with you to this point. So let's move on to your more direct criticism of my post. First, in regard to someone knowing whether or not he/she is standing in water, being "OFFENDED" by my suggestion that this be considered, much less complaining of it, obviously demonstrates not only how unbelievably easily you are offended, but also both your lack of humor as well as your appreciation for the necessity of pragmatism in diagnosis, as in the dictum . .

Again, as everyone misspells, albeit not to the extent the which YOU have, I do no wish to make this a rant or commentary on spelling, but the point to be made is that within the context of your comment, misspelling, I believe, is a valid point for criticism BECAUSE of the I R O N Y exhibited.

But, alas . . I'm only toying with you to this point. So let's move on to your more direct criticism of my post. First, in regard to someone knowing whether or not he/she is standing in water, being "OFFENDED" by my suggestion that this be considered, much less complaining of it, obviously demonstrates not only how unbelievably easily you are offended, but also both your lack of humor as well as your appreciation for the necessity of pragmatism in diagnosis, as in the dictum . .

While you have made many valid points and I respect that, I guess we will just have to agree to disagree! for the record there were one or two spelling mistakes/missing letters. bye for ever!

Default Re: wet sensation bottom left foot

I also have this sensation that my left foot is wet and it also feels cold
the entire bottom of the foot and my toes and maybe as much as a inch up from the sole of my foot has this sensation. I do not notice this sensation in the early morning but as the day progresses by noon the foot is engulfed with this sensation.
I have had extensive surgeries to my left knee and also a knee flap done using one have of my calve muscle 6 months ago but these sensations just began 3 or 4 days ago. Any ideas?

Thumbs up Re: wet sensation bottom left foot

The reason has nothing to do with your feet, and everything to do with your BACK. This is almost definitely a result of a "slipped", "bulging" or broken disc in your lower back. The disc is resting on or pushing on certain nerves which end up giving you the odd sensation of cold wet feet (or foot, or part of foot).

Exercise/physical therapy should fix the problem. 2 good exercises are: 1) lying on your stomach, flat and pushing up with your arms to arch your back "backwards", 10 times, 10 secs a time (like a seal). Every two hours for a day or two. Combine this with:
2) "stretching" your spine: to do this, lie in the middle of a doorway, on your back. Use a broom or other long "stick" across the doorway. Push gently against the stick with your arms, letting your bottom half "heavy" on the floor, focusing on "stretching" your top half away from your bottom -- effectively "stretching" your spine. Do this for 10-20 seconds at a time, (or longer) with a number of repetitions over the day.

You should feel better in a couple of days.

To suggest that such might be a POSSIBLE cause might fly, but to offer such a definitive diagnosis, replete with authoritative-sounding treatment is irresponsible and is why non-professionals, most of whom have had but one experience with symptoms which may or may not be identical to those of a poster should be far more careful in what they post and recommend, as there are occasions when incorrect treatment, especially in regard to spinal problems, can be harmful. Assuredly, no one would take the advice of even a doctor whom they knew to have had but one experience with a particular condition.
