Q&A — Why do my muscles hurt more in my legs?

Q:  I was measured for the stockings and need to use them during my pregnancy, but I find them uncomfortable, itchy and my leg muscles or calf muscles have been killing me since I started using these stockings. I’m thinking it’s not worth it!

A: Get a pair of custom fitted, high quality stockings. 20-30 mm Hg thigh high stockings from a reputable company should be fine. Try to stay off your feet and avoid prolonged sitting and/or standing. Use a good skin moisturizer and get some mild daily exercise.
