Dear Dr. Roach: I must admit that I sit on the throne (toilet) for too long for my morning (or evening) constitutional, maybe 15 minutes or so. But I am busy with my crossword puzzles its about the only time I can carve out for my little obsession.
The problem is, my legs almost always fall deeply asleep. This happens frequently. Im wondering if I should cease this practice. Could I be doing damage to my nervous system? The tingling goes away after I walk around a bit, and there are no lasting effects. V.K.C.
