My ankle and foot pain has slowly increased over time. At this point in, I have a really hard time dealing with the combination of intense ache and and occasional sharp pain if I’m not wearing compression socks with a pretty high level of compression. (The pain is mainly around my ankles and the bridges of my feet.) Like, it genuinely feels like I am at the point I need to replace nearly all of my socks with compression socks. Do you know of any place where you can buy them affordably/in bulk? I usually look on Amazon but they’re still fairly expensive there. I appreciate any suggestions or recommendations you have.

      I had issues like that lead to tendonitis and tendonosis. If left untreated it could change how you walk and make you prone to spinal issues. I'm facing surgery now, will be getting it in November. Please do your body a huge favor if possible and see a foot specialist so he/she can teach you about your feet, what shoes are best for you, stretches, and many other things to prevent you from getting severely injured. Compression may feel good now but it could be just masking something really wrong.

        @Weiss I'm facing spine surgery in particular, not foot. I was able to correct my feet but the damage to my back was already done.
