anybody have recommendations for help with blood pooling in hands and feet? i use compression socks but they always cut the circulation too much and i also take salt tablets sometimes but i get so dizzy when the pooling starts it’s hard to prevent sometimes.

    Try to stay cool, heat makes it worse. Are you wearing the right size compression socks? You might want to try a larger size if they are cutting off your circulation. I wear compression socks every day and I’ve only noticed my circulation not working if they are too tight.

    I have compression socks too and I try to wear them for at least half a day because I totally relate they are pretty tight & can interfere with circulation. I know it’s so so so hard to manage symptoms and we do not have it easy treatment wise. When you lay down, try to elevate your leg and feet on a wall.
