Is It Safe to Wear Compression Socks To Bed?

It is not safe to wear compression socks when sleeping but you can wear them all day long. Find out why wearing compression stockings at night may not be safe for you.

If you are wearing compression stockings to help relieve symptoms of venous disorders like varicose veins, you must have lots of questions. Thankfully, Dr. Atur Kasha – the best vein specialist in El Paso is here to address all your concerns.

Can I sleep in compression stockings?

The answer is No. Compression stockings are meant to be worn during the day when you’re active and moving around. This way, the stockings can apply pressure on your legs, helping to increase blood circulation, and reduce discomfort or swelling.

If you sleep in compression socks, the horizontal lying posture impact on the circulatory system, making it difficult to fight gravity. As a result, that pressure applied to your ankle and legs can stop blood from circulating in your veins.

Dr. Atur Kasha recommends that you wear compression stockings during the day and take them off before going to bed. And when you wake up in the morning, put them on again. Your El Paso vein doctor will monitor your progress and have your stockings replaced after every three to six months.
