My feet and legs fall asleep after sitting on the toilet for not too long. Is this somethin to be concerned about? Causes?

My legs and feet

Extremity-lower-foot
Usually not, if you sit in one position for too long, you are putting pressure on the nerves behind your knees and you will have the sensation of feet and legs falling asleep, once you move around, this usually goes away. Try to straighten your knees and moving your legs more when sitting in one position. If this happens with other positions, then it is time to visit a neurologist.

Circulation

hands/arms and legs/feet falling asleep has to do with circulation and pressure points - try to move around more it should help Not sure why your veins hurt. Being anemic can make these symptoms worse as can low vitamin B12 so you may want to be checked by a physician
