yes! this happens to me too! (i'm sorry-my first reaction to your post was to start laughing because i know this too well). i have this problem in the bathroom, too...(no reading for me!) i find that i have to take breaks and get up and walk around if i'm going to be on the computer for any significant period of time. i have no idea what causes this, though..hopefully another one of our awesome and knowledgable members can explain it! :-)

Me too.  When I wake up in the morning my knees are numb from keeping them together most of the night.  Sometimes my shoulder.  I just thought it was a circulation problem because our fibro muscles are so tight.  My legs, mainly my calves always feel like they are numb but they aren't and it is worse when I sit.  It's a riddle within a riddle...

Ah yes, another fibro mystery. I tushy gets numb and my feet get numb if I sit too long. When its really bad I must look like I'm 100 yrs old when I get up, because not only are those areas numb but they're stiff too. Weird

Hi Dolphinfire and welcome-

Yes, mine does that also and I have to get up at intervals and move around to get the feeling back.

Yeah, I look like an old lady. My kids get a kick out of it. But then when I have a flare i look horrible and sometimes walk with a cane when it gets too bad. My Kids think it's funny and laugh and say, funny things about me being old.

Me too! I take turns sitting, standing, in bed, then over again. Between the numbness and stiffness I look older every day! I do spend more time up and moving or else I really pay for it. Got to keep moving or I get too stiff!
I am going to get me a cane next week and I've decided to get me a small stool for the shower. Been having balance problems and also for the days that my feet are hurting so bad I can hardly stand. I can imagine what my daughters will do when they see the cane! lol

Well well...thanks for this post as I have just learned that my numbness is probably from the newly diagnosed fibro! My arm and hand become numb when sitting and knitting for a bit, butt becomes numb after sitting and oh to get up and walk on those poor feet that feel like they are ten tons heavy! And the worst of the worst, my arm also gets numb and heavy while browsing through clothing racks in the store!

Omg I just had that problem with the clothing racks!!! These racks were a bit above my head( I am pretty short) and my shoulders hurt so bad I had to stop looking. It only took a few minutes before my shoulders hurt and rubbing them did no good. I also hurt real bad when putting dishes away above my head. I have trouble with my butt going numb and am so stiff and sore that sometimes I actually cry out when I finally stand.
