You are right.

How you are feeling it.

"¿Cómo estás sintiendo?" doesn't make much sense. "¿Cómo te sientes?" is a clearer sentence.

As Malila says, ¿Cómo te sientes? = How do you feel? / How are you feeling?

How are feeling you.

I believe that is correct Why do you are telling that it's bad?

How are you feeling? - Como te estas sintiendo?

How do you feel? - Como te sientes?


How does it feel? - Como se siente? (Como cuando algo te toca, por ej: agua fria o caliente, o si es suave a o no, etc...)

In Spain we would say ¿Cómo te encuentras? (para alguien que está enfermo)

Si vas al médico porque te duele el pie, por ejemplo, y empieza a tocártelo y a movértelo, te preguntará: ¿Qué sientes?, ¿te duele?

Si tocas el agua para ver si está fría o caliente, te pueden preguntar: ¿Cómo está, muy caliente?, o ¿cómo la notas, muy caliente? O sobre una tela suave dirás: ¿notas su suavidad? (alguna vez "siento su suavidad", pero no es común).

i really don't understand why como estas sintiendo doesn't make sense it does not break any rules it makes more sense than como te sientes although i know como te sientes is more common but como te sientes really means how do you feel i just think that como estas sintiendo would make more sense i know they say you can't compare the languages but in english when you meet someone you don't say how do you feel you say how are you feeling would it be different in spanish i think como estas sintiendo or como te estas sintiendo just makes more sense but would it be different in spanish

Cada idioma tiene sus cosas. Qué crees que pensé yo cuando empecé a estudiar inglés y la primera frase que aprendí fue: "How do you do?", que significa "¿Cómo haces tú hacer"?

When you study a language you have to think in these language, youn mustn't translate always because you could go mad.

¿Como estas sintiendo..........

needs more information. It seems to be the beginning of a question which doesn't seem to have the object of something that is happening right at that moment.

For example,

¿Como estas sintiendo la fría brisa del mar en este momento? Refrescante o escalofriante?

Or something similar.
