This may sound crazy, but has anyone ever experienced a feeling of warm, running water between their legs even though they are completely dry? This is usually followed by intense itching yet there is no rash or any other signs of anything that would cause itching. Additionally, I have a twitch in my neck that happens anywhere from every couple of months to every day. In the last year or so, as I am falling asleep, my legs will twitch, more like kick really hard and recently, my whole body will do the same thing. The neck can happen anytime, anywhere...the legs and body only happen as I am falling asleep. Any ideas? Am I alone? All but the neck started only after taking Chantix to quit smoking which also, at that same time, my bladder stopped functioning for a couple of days, I stopped the Chantix and the bladder recovered after have a cath for a couple of days...are all of these things related? My neck has been doing this for nearly 15 years but with none of the other things until early '08. :confused:

  • Hi thereNot sure but wondering if the numb, running water feeling and itchiness is a form of cystitis? Certainly cysitis causes burning urine, and maybe its just taking a different form with you? Not sure where you live, if you're in the US I know you have to pay for health care, but just wondered if you'd seen a doctor, or maybe a women's clinic? They might be able to help - or, in the UK, pharmacists can give basic medical advice and recommend some medications. If it were cystitis (not saying it is) there are plenty of over-the-counter remedies.The whole body kicking as you're falling asleep - I used to have that, as you say only as you're falling asleep but as if my whole lower body went into spasm - no pain - and my legs just kicked right up in the air. Never discovered an explanation - I suppose it didn't happen often enough for me to bother my doctor - but just to say no, you're not alone. But, if you can see a doctor, I would advise it, if only for your own peace of mind.Not sure I've been much help, but just wanted to make the suggestion, and say about the spasm no, you're not alone!

  • Hello!Not sure if this is related or not- but I have a friend who has restless leg syndrome, which makes her legs spasm when she is sitting still for too long. Have you looked into that at all?Like my friend in the previous post, I would definitely see a doctor for your own peace of mind. Let us know what you find out!
