I know you are not diagnosed, but MS can cause things like this. When I first developed my spinal lesion, I would often think my left leg was wet. It would also feel like there was water dripping down my shin. I had this weird one for months. It eventually went away on its own.

What's next for your diagnostic process? What is the doctor saying? Will you be trying the lumbar puncture again or no?

Hi yes im going to have the lumber puncture done again (stupid me) on the 28th this month it will be CT Guided so hopefully they get the right spot this time, then I go back to neurologist in about 5 weeks after that for results.
the crawling sensation has lessoned today just the occasional twitch left

You are very patient! 5 weeks is a long time! My neurologist had me in 8 days later to go over results. The lumbar puncture got me my initial diagnosis. Brain MRI, lumbar puncture, blood work and neurological exam.

Immediately after that I was scheduled for evoked potentials (extremities, vision and hearing) and a cervical and thoracic MRI. With those results and my initial tests, I went to an MS center for a second opinion. That's where MS was verified.
