Do we know if compression socks help with circulation for Raynaud's?

      I feel like that’s the opposite of what someone would want. If my fingers or toes are loosing circulation I feel like compression socks would reduce blood flow to those areas. I use compression socks for blood pooling. In Reynaud’s there is no blood pooling, it’s the opposite. The circulation is already restricted. Compression would restrict it more I would think.

        @RyeRyeBread so just read up on it. Seems like it depends person to person. Google says it can help, and some ppl here said they use them. Just asked asked my mom to buy some but she offered me hers (she also has Raynaud's) saying she found them useless
