    One of my chief complaints recently has been really sore legs. At night I wake up with what feels like charlie horses and durring the day they just "hurt".

    I was wondering if anyone has had success with pain reduction and less "tiredness" in you legs using them. I'm a guy so I don't know much about stockings at all but I'm willing to try anything at this point.

    like it might be a good idea....my legs are one of my most painful areas most times....I used to wear light support hose when I worked and dressed up....it did help. I might have to try this again.

    Let us know if you try them and if they help you at all. Thanks for reminding me of this!!

    Geez, you just reminded me that I used to wear support hose for my painful legs, and that they helped!

    Thank you, I'm going to buy some this week and put them on again.

    I'm going to give them a shot... I looked around last night and they aren't cheap. I'm wondering what the diffence between the 15.00 and 30-50 pairs are!

    Last year I got a prescription from my doctor for 4 pairs of compression stockings, and I forgot all about it! Brain fog, ya know!!!

    Now... I wonder where that prescription is. Hmmmmm.

    Where is your pain in your legs? MIne was mostly in my calves, so I went to the local drugstore and bought two Mueller neoprene adjustable calf supports. They seem to help quite a bit and also add a bit of soothing warmth.

    Best of luck.
