Default How Wearing Compression Stockings Could Stop You Snoring

Quote:
Normally, the leg muscles help pump fluid back up to the body, but this flow is hampered in those with poor circulation or who are largely sedentary.

Experts believe an accumulation of this fluid can flow back towards the head when the patient lies down at night.
The idea behind the stockings is that they prevent tissue fluid - a clear liquid that is a constitute of blood - pooling in the legs during the day
