    Hi all,

    Lately if I sit on anything that isn't VERY soft, my legs go numb after a few minutes. I feel like I am sitting on bare rock too.

    Does anyone else have this?

    Love Bunchy x

    Although mine don't go completely numb, usually my feet and up to ankles. And yes, sitting on something not cushy really irritates the sciatic (sp?, foggy) nerve for me too, as well as alot more pressure on my bones than I ever remember.

    There are so many things with this DD it's hard to distinguish what is what.

    When I started Lyrica it helped alot. My hands go numb now, but I think I am having some nerve issues in my neck.
    I can't remember the last time I was able to sit on the floor and play with my son. As much pain and everything else this DD does to me, the worst is watching my kids worry about me. I know my hubby worries which is hard enough. But children shouldn't have to grow up worrying about their parents. It breaks my heart and I do not know what to do.

    I have that all the time. My chair at work causes it so whenever I have to get up, I have to be very careful or I'll fall flat on my face (I've done that a couple times). I spend a large portion of my day shifting around - ants in the pants!

    The more I read this board the more blown away Iam

    I can relate to what everyone said..Its getting so bad sitting that I can only do in short amounts...
    Pins needles numbness the whols shebang!

    I thought it was just my bad back guess not its another fibro thing.

    I have the same thing. When I sit up right in a chair my pelvic area goes numb. When I lay on either side, I have lots and lots of pain and spasms.

    Happens when I sit on hard chairs. When I was still working it happened when I sit at my desk for very long without moving around. I would then have a hard time walking for several minutes.

    Thanks everyone - thought it was just me!

    Saiorse...LOL to you being kicked in the a** but yes you are right that the DD's do that for us.

    I wonder what causes this - lack of circulation, nerve problems or both....

    Gentle hugs,

    Bunchy

    PS today I bought a dunlopillo latex ring to sit on - I'll let you all know if it helps.

    It's so uncomfortable that I don't go to restaurants nor to friends' homes, unless I know them well enough to lounge on their sofas. I've found that chairs with seats that slope back, like Adarondack chairs, allow me to sit for a little while, especially if they have a footstool.

    I can ride in cars and enjoy that because I can adjust the car seat to have the slope that prevents back cramping, tushy pain spikes and leg numbing that I get in chairs.

    Such fun,'eh?!

    *Exactly* my problems and how I deal with them - so sorry for you but grateful others can relate.

    said sitting on the floor is the worst thing for people who have any kind of back problems
