As you all know, I bought the knee high compression hose. They are great now that they are a bit stretched and not so tight now. I like them. I told you I ordered the full sized. I thought I should at least try getting some. Well, they arrived today. After my husband came home I took a nap, then put them on. IT WAS HARD. They are the least of the strengths too! I was happy, I thought they would help me.... GUESS AGAIN. I immediatly felt like my eyes were being pushed from the SOCKETS. I also felt like I was being pulled DOWN. THEN, just a few minutes passed and got terribly, terribly ill with OI. My POTS has gotten so much better, I forgot how HORRID I used to feel. Hubby helped me rip off the stockings and he got the w.chair and got me in bed. :In bed:I was so scared I had done something to ruin my progress and I would be sick forever. I had to lie very still. Finally I could get up and get to my chair,he made dinner and I am better, but my eyes still hurt. NOW... what happened? I do not have low blood pressure with my POTS. Did this cause it to go high? I couldn't take it, too sick, plus I didn't think of it until I felt better. Was it just a shock to my system to have so much blood all of the sudden? I have not heard of this.
