I have heard that nurses can develop varicose veins, as well as any other person who is in a profession that requires them to be on their feet for long periods of time.
I really don't want to get them! I have heard compression stockings can prevent them, however they come in different compressions:
Light- 15-20 mmHg
Medium- 20-30 mmHg
Tight- 30-40 mmHg
Should I start out with the light compression since I have never worn them before? Or the medium compression? I was thinking of getting thigh highs.
Thanks for any advice!
