I don't know how much have you been in aikido, but for some people is difficult to get used to every thing and to master all movements and positions (i.e. seiza). I don't know how it will be that you will feel better doing seiza. Every body is different, maybe a doctor can tell you more about what you feel when you do seiza, but you can train and train a little more every class. For me it was a little difficult to do seiza when I start in aikido but now I feel really comfortable in doing it, maybe is just that you need more time. If it pains a lot you should talk to your sensei and tell him that you need to sit cross legged when he/she is showing the technique. Be patient .
