I went to my CFS doctor Monday. She did some tests to prove my P.O.T.S. I was hoping I didn't have Peripheral Neuropathy. I do not. That is great.

I just wanted to tell you that I had numbness in my toes and tops of my feet. I was scared. Well, even before I saw her, I had figured out what was causing it! My chair! I sat in it so much that it was putting pressure on the back of my legs. The ottoman seemed to be comfy, but it put a bit of pressure on the back of my calves! So, my husband bought a chair I picked out. I showed a photo on another thread. It reclines with a BLUE electric controller. So pretty. Anyway, I can change positions now as I rest.

Also, I was using a pad with my large laptop and THAT also put pressure on the TOPS of my legs. I also have a great laptop desk I ALWAYS use now!

I am better now!:victory:

OH, I also rub my legs and feet to give them more circulation. Even though I walk around, the Disautonomia makes me sit a lot. I exer. my legs a bit, but that isn't as good as just rubbing them. I was going to get a massage today, but I had to cancel, too tired. Hopefully next week I will go.

I love massages. Anyway, just wanted to warn anyone that sits a lot. Just in case your feet start to act up. I am so glad all is fine now.

I KNOW! Hubby massaged my legs and feet before I went to sleep. I had done it after my bath. I do look forward to the massage. I will try again next week. I am really happy about my nerves getting better. Our bodies sure do TRY to get well don't they? They just need the right treatment! Even if it is a new chair, ha.
