I play basketball and have been having bad shin splints. I thought compression socks would help, but I put them on and tried to relax. After I took them off, the next 2 days my calf muscles were tight and they hurt when I walked. I tried stretching my calfs, but it didn't really help. I haven't put then on since. Is there anything more I can do for my shins? Thanks.

He's a diabetic and last year had a triple bypass which they took a vein from each leg. He also has 2 stents and has neuropathy. He wears a size 14 shoe and weighs 360lbs. He walks a lot in his job. Ever since the bypass his legs have hurt and swell easily. Now they stay swollen and are red just above his ankle. He takes a water pill everyday but his legs remain swollen and very painful. Our cardiologist told him to get compression socks. We can't find compression socks that fit him.
