    Pins and Needles

    I'm always sitting on my foot, it's a bad habit of mine, but it's sooo comfatable. When I feel it go numb, I usually start jiggling about so it doesn't start to hurt. But no, it always does. I have the pins and needles, well done me.

    Awful Feeling

    I would rather someone punch me than to have that awful feeling of my foot falling asleep.  It is so sensitive and hurts from the feeling of pins and needles sticking in it.  I try to jump on it or rub it or walk on it... Whatever helps at the time.  I just hate it...

    Foot Falling Asleep

    I hate it and annoying when my foot falls asleep.  For me, I find, if I'm in a certain position or constant position, this is when it may happen the most.

    God I Hate This Chair

    My roommate has the crappiest chair in front of the computer. I can't believe I've EP'ed on it (lol) for all this time. I keep sitting a certain way, and it's killing my right ankle and making my foot fall asleep.

    Don't you hate that? I sit on one leg most of the time, not sure why but it works. Of course that means one is always falling asleep. I hate how it goes from no feeling at all to tingles, to pain to finally feeling. How annoying....

    Like when my foot falls asleep

    and it's "waking back up", it feels like when the old TVs would lose signal and the weird eerie noise would sound on it
