If this is still happening...make an appt with a neurologist or a chiropractor...

This happens to me if I sit too long in the bathroom (generally after 5 minutes)...somehow I'm cutting off circulation...

Thanks for answering my post. I have been seeing a neurologist for the past year. In fact I have seen several neurologists. It is amazing how they never listen to what you are saying. They examine you and make their own assumptions. Neurologists are the most arrogant doctors I have ever met!!

bigal1234,

You haven't met the right neurologist. Don't paint them all with the same brush Smile

You're probably got the ones that you have seen, stumped.

Since it happens when you are in a sitting position....it makes me think that you might be out of alignment.
