    Anyone suffering? Can't wear socks as they dig in too much :( And the itching is unbearable!

    No but i know for a fact that i will be soon. i have bad circulation to start with in my legs and they itch like mad. i've also go loads of split veins already :(

    Do you elevate your legs? that will help a bit to take the swelling down.
    try standing up on your toes and then back down to get the blood flowing too.
    also soaking them and using some sort of cooling foot cream will help with the itch.

    aw! make sure you elevate them! Your supposed to try and do it higher than your head. so lie down with loads of cushions. might help take the swelling down!!

    Let me know if it eases it at all!
