I apologize as I'm sure this topic has been discussed at length. In about 3 weeks I'm traveling from California to Ireland. I fly from LA to Atlanta which is about 4 hours, then have a couple hours to walk around in the airport, then from Atlanta direct to Dublin, which is about 7.5 hours.
I emailed my rheumatologist to ask her opinion on compression socks and possibly taking an extra baby aspirin (I currently take 80mg daily) and she wasn't very helpful. Her response was basically that it can't hurt to do those things as extra precautions during my flights but didn't have a strong opinion one way or another.
So, I'm looking for input on the best place to buy compression socks online. I know I have to have exact leg measurements taken, but I just don't know what company to buy from.
Also, if I get the knee-high ones, should I wear somewhat loose pants over them? I can't imagine wearing leggings or anything tight over them but I don't really wear skirts or dresses. Any personal experience wearing them would be helpful.
Thank you and happy Friday!
