My 15-20 mmHg compression socks aren't alleviating my pain, should I go up to 20-30 mmHg or higher?
I have very tired calves & heels that come primarily from walking all day at my job. I work between 28-37 hours weekly (it varies). My step count averages between 11,000-14,000 steps monthly. I have tried Epsom salt, have used an electric foot massage, and even wear 15-20 mmHg compression socks. I also wear Hoka One One Clifton 5 shoes, which are only 1 month old. No matter what, I still feel pain. What should I do?

What would happen if I chose to stop wearing my compression stocking?
I'm 80 years old and have knotty veins at the top of my left leg. I don't have any pain. I walk 8,000 steps a day. I bought compression stockings from the same company online to hopefully keep from having further problems. Am I doing more damage wearing them than not? Thank you.

The nurse who has been injecting my reticular and spider veins now won't treat the reticulars. Any advice?
Sclerotherapy - 2 answers
A nurse has been injecting my reticular veins and spider veins. This time around, she said she will only inject the spider veins. I'm not comfortable with this as I believe the reticular veins are feeding my spider veins. I had a Doppler ultrasound (she used the small handheld device) where she checked to see if there were any underlying vein issues and said there was none. I’m not convinced. I require another 2 - 3 treatments after this. Advice?

EVLT - 1 answer
I just had the endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) and foam sclerotherapy yesterday. I came home and slept a good amount. For the most part, I feel pretty good. I'm a little swollen and achy around the insertion site, but more than anything I'm fatigued and my energy levels are null. I am an always-on-the-go kind of person. Is my fatigue normal? If so, why does this occur and for how long?
