My nervous system is so out of sorts. If I sit too long.. my feet will be numb/tingly when I get up to walk...or it my arm is bent too long it will tingle...

basically if I stay in the same position too long something will go numb/tingle... whether it be my hand/foot, or even my butt/and other area...

But as soon as I change position it goes away and the feeling comes back.

It's been like this since I've began having other symptoms.

What is this? Why is this happening?

Don't know exactly why, but I get the same thing. In my case, sometimes it's because my neck is out of whack and I need to see the chiropractor. Also, I have tendonitis in both arms and I think that contributes. THe leg that goes numb, I have no clue.

Parasites can cause this. Check out the symptom list at

Parasites play a MAJOR role in lyme disease,

I have the same problem but mine is pain, tingling , and numbness. I had an EMG done and they found Peripheral Neuropathy. You should really get tested

I've had an NCS and it was normal. I haven't had a EMG done yet though.

Is this a Lyme symptom or something else?

I have had this happen to me. It used to happen when I sat for long periods, my legs would tingle and go numb, or if I leaned on my elbow resting my face on my hand I would get tingling in my arm.

I find this is worse when I am herxing and is getting better with treatment.

I think its sensitive nerves.

At least it goes away when you change positions.

I also have peripheral neuropathy, and the numbness/tingling hardly ever goes away. Mostly it's on the left side, but when I'm herxing, both legs are affected.

I've always assumed it's a lyme symptom.

It is the same for me. The pain, numbness and tingling is constant. Most of mine is on my right side... Generally I wouldn't even know I had a big toe if I couldn't see it.... Thsi makes me a tad off balance
