Anonymous, You need to get up and walk around.  Get the circulation going in your legs.  It is not good, even for a person who is not diabetic, to sit for hours at a time.  If you must sit, put a foot stool or a box under your computer desk and elevate your legs.  Also, see your doctor asap, as there may be an underlying cause.
