Q:

Is it ok to wear Ted stockings at night while sleeping? I'm on bed rest. But I saw online that it shouldn't be worn at night but not wearing it makes me uncomfortable. Pls advise.

Hello..
yes avoid wearing in night and avoid wearing for long time like 5- 6 hours continuously.. it hampers blood circulation
