    Has anyone had any results using one of these sequential compression massagers? athletes use them for recovery (the expensive ones like the normatec) and doctors put them on patients post-surgery to avoid blood clots... There's a less expensive one on amazon that appears to be good quality.

    ~$450 (incl tax)

    I've been using something similar (much cheaper price) for about 5 years. I have POTs and get a lot of swelling in my legs plus fluid. Does help with this. The leg swelling is noticeably better after. I need to keep doing this though.

    No change to any of my ME symptoms.
