    Default Do you cam girls ever get health problems from sitting long periods of time?

    I've been getting an intermittent dull ache in my left leg (calf area) that moves up to my lower thigh area when I elevate it. It seems to only happen at night when laying in bed. Yes I'm pretty darn sedentary right now (lazy AF due to my depression) so I'm not excercising as I prob should be & I'm a bit heavier than I used to be.

    My question is do any of you cam girls ever get this type of dull leg ache from sitting long periods of time or being inactive? I've been to dr twice & got 2 different opinions & both seem to say its a muscle strain. Leg isn't swollen or anything, and the dull ache seems to come & go comes only at bed time.

    I think I'm ruling out DVT, due to what both dr's said by looking at that leg. The others most likely.

    poor circulation , sometimes feet cramps. but I am setting a timer for 2 hours and I am figuring out a new set up so I can use a remote control camera and have my big screen tv and the new computers on wheels.

    and I plan not to work in my room once I decorate the living room. that will help with a whole room ready for webcam.

    My bed is awkward to work off, because of the distance I need the monitors and working two cameras sometimes its hard to have them in a position where each time i stand up I have to move them both.

    some type of stretching is super important and 2 hours online break seems to be the new routine.

    I try to watch the clock and stand up to move around and dance every 10 minutes or. Definitely start exercising.

    I've had circulation problems, swelling, and sciatic pain due to sitting for long periods of time due to one work or another and hobbies. I can't speak for your specific problem, but it is benefitial to start at least a mild walking routine and stretching. Also set a timer to every 1-2 hours to get up and stretch or walk around for 5-10 minutes. This helped me a lot. To make me get up every few hours I got a dog so we can go for walks. People have died due to sitting for extended (though, extreme) periods of time; it can be dangerous.

    Yes and it's not encouraging me to get back on cam because I can't think of what position to be in that will work as well as my current set up. Back and neck issues for me. I do log off regulary and move around but it's not enough. I also don't just sit looking at the cam laptop screen, I turn to another laptop that I busy myself on when noone is talking to me, so I'm not looking at a single fixed point all day as that can cause eye problems.

    This sounds like sciatica...it comes from your back. My partner has the same problem.

    Sometimes sciatica pain can come from the sciatic nerve being compressed between bones in the pelvis and a swollen, tight piriformis muscle. I get this problem a lot, it sends pain right down my leg when it's bad, and I had to figure out how to fix it myself at home.

    Get a ball, a tennis ball will work when you first start, and lie on your bed with it under your butt. Roll on it until you hit a spot that is very tender and painful. Then you can rest on that spot until the pain lessens, or keep rolling across it. Roll under your whole butt if you're sitting for long periods of time to loosen the muscles and reduce pain.

    As time goes on, you may want to start using a harder ball like a squash ball or a yoga therapy ball and lie on the floor as it becomes less painful to do.

    I swear the feeling of the pain just disappearing is one of life's joys, lol.

    I cammed from my bed for years and just about destroyed my back, requiring minor surgery. With the business though I still sit for hours at a time, but I make sure everything is as perfectly ergonomic as possible and get up to walk around whenever I think about it.

    What I was told basically and so far its true, its not about your position necessarily, its that you change stances as often as is feasible. This means going from sitting to standing to laying back to being up and active as much as you can. No one position is necessarily good or bad for you, but staying in one position with only minor movement for long periods is always bad.

    The past year I had been sitting a ton since I increased my hours on cam and I gained a bit of weight. I had been having some back issues also. Now whenever I'm not on cam I try to walk around a ton. I also strength train twice a week which has been helping. What about one of those standing desks that you can adjust? That way sometimes you can stand up while you're camming. I've been looking into getting one so I don't have to sit the entire time.

    Back pain from sitting at awkward angles on my bed and sciatica pain (didn't know the terminology but looking at the graphic, I've definitely had it!). It really is important to make sure you stand up and move around at least every hour or so. It also makes your shows more engaging when you're standing/dancing/etc.

    wow! Thanks everyone for your replies I'm starting to think it has something to do with my sitting positions on the bed & not moving around as much as I should be. Gonna start walking around more & hopefully that helps. I was starting to think I had a blood clot from my road trips I took in July & Sept due to my feet swelling from sitting for so long. After elevating them for a bit, the swelling always goes away.

    I get pains from working the muscles in the small of my back from arching my booty (I do a lot of booty worship and twerking in my shows.) I'd highly recommend a foot rest above 6 inches under your desk. I stopped doing bed shows because I would get "rug" burn from my comforter on my knees and elbows. Sitting in an office chair for camming sessions and computer work (Excel spreedsheet updating etc.) has helped tremendously.
