    Where in the world is my A/D coming from??

    I'm having a slight problem with A/D and it is frustrating me. I have no pressure anywhere on my body that would be causing this reaction. I seem to do better when I get into bed as the A/D is much less. Most of my problems are when I get into the chair, within five minutes I'm getting A/D, chills, sweaty feeling but not severe enough to cause a headache. Even when I lean back I have the exact same problem . Less than two weeks ago I had an ultrasound done on my kidneys and bladder, all is fine. Other than this I feel pretty good.

    Can anyone give me an idea what may be causing this?

    Have you been checked for abcesess?

    A Freind had one in his hip socket, that when he got up, caused AD like you have.

    I second this. Spent 3 months in bed last summer because of a pin-prick-sized wound that had a 2 inch deep abscess behind it, and my initial symptoms were unexplained AD while sitting.

    Exiting nerve root impingement below the level of injury could also be a cause. I have less time sitting before AD is induced than standing or walking (with forearm crutches).

    Get a cat scan to be sure of sores, broken bones....

    try something simple first: are you squishing your testes?

    Are your pants too tight? Sounds silly, I know, but have seen it be the cause. check your positioning- maybe something is off just a little.
    Also, any changes in bowel or bladder? Ingrown toenail (although that would not explain the change when you sit up).

    I have checked everything, I have even worn sweatpants because they are soft with no snaps etc., nothing is pinching me anywhere on my skin. Raising the leg rest on my chair seem to give me somewhat of a break, but not completely. Get into bed and all seems to be fine ?? I seem to be positioned in my chair quite well, my Roho seems to be right where it's supposed to be. This is a new chair, so I'll have to keep tinkering with positioning. I think I'm going to ask the Doc about a CAT scan as Lorri has mentioned. Thanks for all your suggestions, Rick.
