Here's another suggestion that might work. Instead of riding the recumbent bike ride a sit up bike and see if that works better. The normal neutral position that they suggest on a sit up bike is when your foot is all the way down 6 pm position you leg should be bent around 29 -30 degree angle. Good luck

When exercising you have to just keep moving one foot at a time.

Although this Ask the Expert is about the elliptical, the same thing can apply to the bike:

Hope that helps,

I have been riding the recumbent stationary bike at the gym and have noticed that my feet get tingly. I think that the seat is at a good distance for my short legs and I am pretty sure that my form is okay.

Any ideas why this might be happening?

Thanks!
