Does wearing socks for swelling feet just move the swelling?

At night I swear the fluid just goes straight to my feet, and when I'm wearing socks it's very ristricting! But I rough it out until I go to relax in the p.m. and elevate.

  • Big difference between socks and compression stockings. Compression stockings facilitate the fluid away from your feet.
