So... I've had this problem for a little over three years, but it just happened again, and it's so frustrating. I'll be sitting, usually "criss-cross applesauce" ("Indian" style), when one, or both, of my legs goes numb. It falls asleep and gets tingly a lot of times, but as soon as I realize it's happening, it's too late. I'm stuck with it for 5 minutes or so, at least. No matter how much I try to move it to get it circulating better, it just rapidly goes numb more and more, until I can't even feel the lower half of my leg (or sometimes even up to my hip)when I drop it or touch it. I definitely can't walk on it, and when sensation does come back, it's sooo uncomfortable/ painful.
And yes, I drink a ton of water every day, and regularly stretch and exercise.
Has anyone else ever experienced this? I can't seem to find anything about it on WebMd or anywhere.
