  • Cute Compression Socks for May–Thurner Syndrome (MTS)

    May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS), also known as Iliac Vein Compression Syndrome, is a rare condition that occurs when the left iliac vein is compressed by the right iliac artery. When the artery blocks blood flow, it can lead to the development of blood clots. MTS often affects young women who have given birth and is five times more likely to occur in the left leg than the right. It is rare to have MTS in the right extremity. Symptoms of May-Thurner Syndrome are similar to restless legs, and can also include pain in the thighs, hips or in the lower back, swelling, or the development of varicose veins in the affected area.

    This condition is most often diagnosed after a blood clot forms and the patient is diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). If the blood clots break off, they can travel to the lungs and cause Pulmonary Embolism (PE), which is life threatening. DVT symptoms include swelling, pain, warmth in the affected area, redness or discoloration. If you think you may have a blood clot, see your doctor right away to decrease your risk of complications.

    Michelle Dalton Tyree has been diagnosed with Iliac Vein Compression Syndrome. To manage her condition Michelle, must wear compression socks or stockings every day and takes blood thinners to help prevent clotting. She was so excited to hear about cute compression socks like Rejuva, Vim & Vigr and Sockwell! For those who have to wear compression socks to manage medical conditions, we offer fashionable compression socks in a variety of compression levels for both men and women.

    Compression socks help to manage and prevent a variety of ailments, including varicose veins, swelling, fatigue, lymphedema, diabetes, DVT, Dysautonomia and much more. For medical compression socks or more compression options, please see our sister site, BrightLife Direct.
