So, I carried a yoga ball into work, blew the blasted thing up and have now been told that due to Health and Safety they won't let me sit on it.... Grr
I "can have anything I want" instead. Hmmmm grin
Only 5 weeks at work left - anyone got any suggestions for alternative seating. My tailbone is numb though that's probably because I am desk bound and not taking enough breaks more so than the quality of my current chair.

How ridiculous! Our H&S actually encourage and supply gym balls (not just for pregnant people!)

Why not ask for one of these

I ended up working from home because I had a high desk and could stand. Sadly, I think prolonged sitting is the worst thing for the tailbone/sciatic nerve/SI joint issue. I was getting electric shocks down my right leg - it was horrendous and sitting makes it so much worse.
