I have what the doctor called degenerative arthritis of the midfoot. The foot swells a lot, but is controlled fairly well by wearing 20-30mmhg compression socks. My foot will swell up pretty badly in a couple hours and by the end of the day will spread into the ankle. 10 minutes of a compression sock will take most of it away.

After hip replacement, I wore thigh high compression stocking on the opposite leg. I woke up with nerve pain on my outer thigh.
Compression Stockings -2 answers
The pain was around the top of the stocking. I removed it and one week later I still have numbness on the outer thigh and it now feels like rubber band hits to my top thigh. Will this resolve on its own? What's the time frame for healing? Can a nerve break or does it just get bruised?

Compression Stockings -1 answer
I have POTS-Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. I am a woman, 5'6", 165lbs. I was told to get compression stockings mid-calf to knee. Should it be open toe or closed? I need to know strength and if a particular brand is better. I was told to measure the ankle and calf upon waking. There is a medical supply store I will go to for fitting. Thanks so much!

My 16 year old wears leg compression sleeves for running. They came down once and bunched up. Is this a reason to evaluate him for a blood clot?
Compression Stockings -1 answer
There may be other times when hte sleeves are bunched up and he didn't notice, I'm assuming. Also he only wears it to run track for school because his legs hurt if he runs without it. There is no pain without the sleeves when he is not running. He only needs sleeves for running. He is 6ft and on the heavy side. Strength is 20-30mmHG.

I have a ruptured Bakers cyst and will have a steriod injection in November before my long flight to NZ, which I do annually. My knee is causing lots of problems.

I will also wear tight leggings. Is this advisable? Thank you.
