Do you ever experience numbness or tingling in your feet after sitting at the computer a long time?

I have had this tingling and numbness of my toes of my feet when spending several hours at my PC.

That said, I figure it is related to inactivity and or getting old. I will turn 60 in October and I have had back pain from just cutting the lawn but it seems I have had the poor circulation of my feet since I bought this new office chair.

If it is caused by poor posture, I probably am having issues with that as well. I once did walk more. It is possible that I need to move about more and maybe even consider standing at my PC.

But I wonder if there is a way to make my feet feel more normal without going to see a doctor about this.

The edge of the seat may be cutting off your circulation by pressing in behind your knees. Getting up and walking around is good. You could try a block under your feet to raise your feet and relieve pressure on your legs.

I'd put these symptoms down to getting older. I get much the same symptoms as yourself when I spend to long at the keyboard. The answer for myself is more exercise which is why, at the ripe old age of 64, I still go camping and hillwalking when I can and that would possibly be the answer to your problems - walking, I mean, not climbing hills or camping!
