    I have just started wearing a Compression Sleeve on my left arm & hand and compression socks up to the knee on both feet. The left arm swells from Lymphaderma and the feet from Peripheral Neuropathy.

    Neither, I wear Dickies.
    No circulation problems, no foot problems other than a corn or two that I’ve had to work on.

    Matter of fact, after about a month in country (Vietnam) I didn’t wear socks or drawers at all and continued that until around 1980. In the Nam, my feet (and other things) dried quicker without the added material and I just got used to not wearing them way into civilian life.

    I refuse to accept any ailment that I can't pronounce!

    Lon, how did you get lymphedema? Have you had lymph nodes removed? Sorry you are having to deal with that.

    I have a pair of compression socks, but don't wear much.
