Hello -- actually, the water damage could be the cause, and could also be permanent. But, to know, you must
REMOVE YOUR BB BATTERY NOW!!!
Run, don't walk, to this FAQ:
Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time. Applying power to your BB between it getting wet and doing this process reduces the chances of success. Further, the only thing predictable about moisture intrusion into a BB (indeed, any electronic device) is that the results will be unpredictable. I've seen some come back up right away and be fine. I've seen others never work at all. I've seen still others run for a bit, and then die later. And every thing in between.
Given how long it's been since the damage, it is quite unlikely that this BB can be saved...but you never can tell until you do it.

I'm having the same problem. My bold 9900 seems to have life.
I haven't drop it on the water or something like that. It just start happening. And when it happens I just can not have control on the device. Either the touch pad doesn't work, on one hand, or the touch screen, on the other hand.
I tried a battery pull, alt+right shift+del and a security wipe. None seemed to solve the problem completely.
One time, when this issue seemed to be fixed, I decided to try playing brick breaker and...the old problem returned worse than ever while playing it.
I'm getting crazy with this. ANY ONE CAN HELP? ANY IDEAS? Can it be a keyboard issue? Or is it a more serious problem?
The OS on my bold 9900 (which was purchased in Canada) is the 7.1 Bundle 2108 (v188.8.131.526, platform 184.108.40.2066), originally from Rogers.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Many thanks to all members at the forum.

I recommend that you attempt to boot into Safe Mode:
It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, see what happens.
If the behavior ceases in Safe Mode, then think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.
But, if the behavior continues in Safe Mode, then you would have to consider more drastic actions. Indeed, you've already conducted some of those, so it's completely possible that this is a hardware issue -- for which no amount of internet-distance diagnostics nor self-help recommendations can be of any use. Only an in-person evaluation by a qualified hardware technician can give you a proper evaluation and estimate if it's a hardware problem.
Good luck and let us know!
