i have sat with my legs crossed at the knee probably starting when i was around seven now i am fourty. i cross them every time i sit down, and always with the same leg right over left. eventually after a long period of crossing, my top leg gets numb. i have heard that crossing your legs can cause vein problems, back problems, and hip problems, i dont have any at all, but is this true that it is bad? do you cross your legs also? and are you aware it might be bad?

there has been a lot of myths about stuff like that. if your really concerened you should talk to a proffesional to know the real truth. because maybe you don't have to stop. believe me i have the same problem and i don't want to stop. when my top leg starts feeling num i put it normally and massage it for about a minute.
hope i helped you
