Touching My Feet


On Sunday 16th December (this last weekend), it was around 6pm and I was sat on my bed (the left side), with my left leg hanging off the bed, foot touching the floor and my right leg was fully on the bed as I was getting my baby ready for bed.

Whilst changing her, I felt a tickling sensation across my left foot (on the floor) like something had just brushed past it gently. This has not been the only incident. It happens must days. Most of the time when I am in my apartment I have bare feet. I have just started wearing slippers/socks and I noticed this brushing across my feet doesn't happen.

I moved into my apartment in summer this year and as soon as I moved in I always felt this sensation. It happens when I am stood in the kitchen, when I am playing with my daughter. It happens in every room of my apartment and can happen at any time. It has occasionally happened when my feet have been covered by the duvet whilst I am in bed. It's a soft sensation, feels nice and tickly. I don't mind this happening but a couple of times it has been an annoyance and have even found myself verbally saying, "Stop it." I know this sounds odd, but I felt like I needed to say it.

I am just curious at to what it could be. Plus, we do not have any pets. When I have looked at my feet as soon as this sensation happens there is nothing there and there is nothing near my feet that can be touching them. Just another thing, this sensation is always felt at the sides or top of my feet and never on the underside (sole). Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could be? Any information/comments would be greatly appreciated.

this is a rather odd experience. Either you have a ghostie who likes tickling feet 😁 or you could have a medical condition. I know you already stated that you don't but a tingling or pins and needles sensation can mean many different things. However; I like to believe it is a friendly spirit, maybe even a lost loved one who used to tickle you or joke around a lot. Just a thought.

Hi thanks for your comments. I have asked about the apartment and the previous tenants had a little dog, but as far as I am aware it was alive and well. I try to be open minded as I said it doesn't bother me. I am the only one who, as I live on my own with my baby. I did over 20 years ago have a cat I am not sure it's its anything to do with her. I doubt there is anything matter with my foot though but thanks for. Mentioning it. Sorry feet not foot. X

Azhar is probably right, but it could also be a cat. If you know anything about past residents it would help. They may have lost a cat or something that is still hanging around. Either way, it doesn't appear to be anything to work yourself up over 😁

samtillie- maybe you should try and ask your neighbours about the 'history' of your apartment.
Does it happen to anyone else in your apartment?

Is it possible that there is some minor circulation or nerve problem in that part of your foot? It can give a ticklish feeling.
