jackiesj in regards to compression socks, too painful to walk if I don't wear them! Tried every brand since 2004, my doc back then told me to wear them. NOW the best brand I have found is Sockwell and they come in delightful fun prints which I wear with my rocker sandals. I get Med/large (weight 125). They instruct you to buy according to ankle and calf sizes. I get avg strength 18-20, but in other brands I need 20-30 strength. When I get hot, I wear my cooling ankle wraps. Also, 2nd choice is Danish Endurance, also solid cute colors (even red!) various prices on Internet range from $20-50. Course I buy from the site for $20!! They are so much cooler than the ones I bought 20 yrs ago. Because EU sizing, I get medium/large. Wear every day!!! Hope you find some you like. Doctors always prescribe the solid hot ones cause they don't know the heat flares up MS symptoms. I am 70, and DMTs no longer stop or help my brain damage, so I am just trying to ease symptoms. Tried diet, other alternatives. Now gonna try essential oil protocols! I want to just ease my symptoms since DMT none help. Stay connected. !
