A 41-year-old member asked:

Needs evaluation: It is hard to tell for sure what you mean by leg feels heavy, which can mean different things to different people. If you are having difficulty lifting your leg or foot, it could be a sign of nerve damage. There is a nerve close to the fibula which helps lift the foot and turn it out. If it isn't working properly it can result in "foot drop". Deconditioning can also give a "heavy" feeling.

PT consult: The first thing to check is fit. If the seat is too deep, you may be cutting off circulation behind your legs. Also, chairs that have a sling seat are more likely to put pressure behind the legs. Then find out if your chair can have elevating leg rests. A good physical therapist should be able to give you some tips or order appropriate modifications to your chair.
