When did it start?
Have you mentioned it to any of your docs?
 
I'm guessing it's an indication of poor blood circulations to the area or possibly a nerve is getting pinched when sitting.

I have mentioned it to the doc's. He said its a first for him, that was about it.
Found out Jan. 07
g\8
psa 116
The doc said chemo or radiation was not an option.
Started Lupron to shrink it before surgery, did not work.
Radical prostentechomy Sept. 5.
Couldn't get it all, it was outside the sack and into lower lymph nodes.
Cathader removed about 3 months.
Incontinont for about 3 months
Peranial rectal absesses w/ drains for about 4 months <MRSA>
Continued Lupron until Oct. 08 <psa.04 to .06>.
Started losing weight. <194 to 170>
Now trying Zoladex, next shot in Dec. 18, then we will see what the PSA is, before deciding on future treatments.
Now in the T4 N1 stage.
Side effects:
Lupron=memory, tired all the time, joints and muscle aches, hot flashes.
Zoladex=memory, tired after doing something, left back rib cage is tender when inhaling, all joints and muscles below the waist ache, the worst is the left hip.
Went to the doc's today 12-18-08, stopped Zoladex today waitin on blood work to come back.
Blood work came back .07. now back on Zoladex for three months then we will see what happens.
PSA came back .08, back on the Zoladex, see what happens in three more months.
Zoladex quit working., Now back on Lupron.
Had a  tumer removed from back hip, the hips feel good now.
Psa still rising.3-2-10
Still on Lupron.
The last doctors visit, he said He was suprised to see how well I'am doin. He also told me he had second  thoughts of doin the surgery, because he thought I was too far gone, But I will show em.

With tiredness being such a problem are you sitting down a lot, and therefore perhaps sitting too much?

I remember getting a bit numb in my butt and legs if I sat in certain chairs, so made a point of not always sitting in the same chair.
(And even before the op I would always do things to keep my posture happy when sitting like adjusting my seat every half hour while driving.)

I was told not to sit still for more than 45 minutes at a time after my operation (but even a thirty second walk was enough to help wake things up)

I imagine walking will help (and I agree with an old post where someone pointed out something along the lines that spreading your walking over the day is better than having one long walk.)
