      I am wondering if anyone else has this problem I have to wear socks in bed as I can not stand the sheets on my feet even my neurogolyist said you have to wear socks to bed and I said yes. My questions is this how long before I do not have to wear the socks to bed. Thank you Carol

      I wear the softest socks I can find. Either I wear socks to bed or turn on a heating pad that goes off after 2 hours. This works well to get me to sleep.

      Oh, almost 10 years post for me. So if you find a brand you like, might as well buy their stock :rolleyes:

      I was always a sock wearer. For a while in the hospital, I couldn’t wear them at all because my whole body was just too hot. Now, after that resolved itself, I am back to wearing them all the time. I have been that way since I was a kid growing up in an old drafty farm house. Old habits die hard. 😀
