My husband has neuropathy of the legs. Should he wear support stockings?

Response from Dr. Henry

Neuropathy in the setting of HIV treatment generally is managed most often by effective HIV treatment, switching off possibly offending drugs, and a range of analgesics and/or drugs for pain/neuropathy. Support hose are not usually effective in that condition unless there is also underlying vascular/venous insufficiency. KH
