Welcome to XXXXXXX

When we keep certain postures for long, some of our nerves are under tension/ compressed due to weight/pressure. It is called paresthesia which we feel.

Please avoid long siting in the same posture. If you are required to sit down on floor or on toilet seat for long, please try to keep your position changing as much as possible.

You can take a short course of B complex also.

Thank you for posting your query. Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

If you have further concerns in this regard, I would be happy to discuss those with you as well.
