Hi @pitepalten, I think a lot of folks share your symptoms when they have neuropathy. Also, some share the symptoms even without having neuropathy. You will notice that we added some words to the title of your discussion to hopefully bring in more members. Here's some information I found on sitting that speaks to the topic while we wait for members to share their experience with you.

"The longer one sits, the more strenuous it becomes for the body. If you suffer with nerve pain, sitting for long periods of time is slowly damaging the nerves over time. Sitting can affect the nerves most vulnerable to pain sensations, such as tingling, burning or stabbing pain." --- 5 ways sitting is killing your nerves - Loma Linda University: https://lluh.org/services/neuropathic-therapy-center/blog/5-ways-sitting-killing-your-nerves

My feet are most numb at night. I think that is typical. I have been improving a lot with gabapentin, 300 mg 2X day, alpha lipoic acid, Vits. K2 and D3. I'm 80 years old and got neuropathy from chemo.
