I know everyone says that compression socks help, but, i'm not convinced all ppl are helped by this.
I once spent money i did not have, buying all kinds of higher priced compression stockings when i first got a few veins.
The veins got worse, not better.
so i bought even stronger hosiery, figuring the veins are now getting worse, cuz, i don't know, maybe cuz i'm a few years older now?
at some point, some doc told me, that i should consider skipping that support hose stuff, as for some ppl, that can exacerbate the veins becoming engorged.
so i did. I skipped it all. Just wore socks.
ahhh. My veins stopped getting worse, a few receded, and i had the rest blasted off of me. Haven't worn support hose since, and now, i am kinda sorry i ever did. I occasionally take some aspirin now and then, to help with any leg aches.
Not that this would be true for every person, but, those support hose made MY veins WORSE, not better. (and yes, i was putting them on while lying on my back on floor holding my feet up in air) so DO monitor if the hose are actually helping your legs,
