Hi, I am new and have chronic pain when sitting for last 7 years. I am fine when up and moving, or for short periods (1hour) of sitting, but I have desk job 3 days per week, and when sit at computer all day the pain is always there. Also now have shingles pain, beginning to finally get better after 1 month. Good to be at this Forum to share and read about others' experiences and coping methods.
