Leg and feet tingle, aching shoulders and back

I'm 6'1'' 170lbs, 45 yoa and have no medical problems.

After 10 yrs of driving vans and suvs we recently purchased a R350 Mercedes. My wife and I both test drove the vehicle and all was fine.

We had to travel the next week ( 257 miles ) and I began to have a tingling sensation in my right leg and foot, as if it they were asleep about 3 miles into the ride. I stopped several times to stretch. When we arrived, My lower back and shoulders were tired and aching. I have never experienced this before in my son's car ( Mercury Marquis ).

I so hate this because it is such a nice riding car and we are purchasing it now. On the return trip it was not that bad. I just drove to the store, .8 miles and these symptoms began in just that short ride.

I drive an Amarda as my primary vehicle and have no problems.

What can be done to help my situation, so that I can enjoy this veh with my family ?...Meds or treatments..I'm stumped....

Bio Skin compression shorts offer a significant advance over other brands. They supply superior compression to the groin and hamstring without the bulk of the typical compression shorts.
