    Feel worse sitting down?

    Advertisement :
    Do any of you feel much better when standing up and actually moving around? I found that it is sometimes intolerable to sit at my desk and work, or sit in the car, or whatever. I feel much better when I'm up doing something. I also feel better laying down flat on my back.

    Yes, sitting down is most painful to me although now that I've been on elmiron about 5 months I find the pain is much less than before. I think a lot of us have pain with sitting.

    I have more pain sitting for extended periods of time also. I try to alternate sitting and walking around in the office. No more 6 hours on the computer. Changing activities is the best way around it so far.

    Sitting is uncomfortable for me, but since I'm not very tall (just under 5'2") I can sit cross-legged on my chair at work. I do this and it tilts my pelvis forward and for some reason that makes sitting for long periods of time easier.
    You must be the change you want to see in the world.
