Get off the toitlet!: The numbness is from direct pressure on the sciatic nerve when you sit on the toilet too long. Avoid prolonged "office" time in the bathroom. Get in, do your business, and get out.

Toilet neuropathy: I think i just made that phrase up but that's what you have. The position you are in when sitting on the toilet, which may be due to the height of the toilet is causing pressure on nerves creating your problem. See, how long it takes for it to kick in and if it happens on all toilets.
