If you suffer from neuropathy like 20+ million others, you understand how painful this debilitating condition truly is. It’s not an overstatement that neuropathy also impacts nearly every aspect of one’s life. Simple pleasures such as walking the dog, cutting the grass, or even getting up from the sofa to use the restroom can become almost unbearable. Even with a doctor’s guidance and a variety of medication intended to help with the pain, the fear always remains that a lightning bolt of agony may be right around the corner.
If you’re experiencing nerve pain in your legs you know full well it’s no joking matter. Everything (and we mean EVERYTHING) you used to do daily now seems like a distant dream. What used to be the easiest tasks now seem nearly impossible to accomplish. Carrying a load of laundry to the washing machine might as well be the same thing as training to run the Boston Marathon! Attempting to enjoy a relaxing evening watching television with your family likely requires propping your leg on a pillow or several seating readjustments before the end credits roll.
If you’re one of 20+ million people in the United States that suffer from painful neuropathy you’ve surely found yourself investing in a variety of remedies. The most common product you can purchase and use every day are likely socks. With literally hundreds of brands and a wide variety of styles, it can be difficult to find the best socks to help alleviate your specific neuropathy pain. Neuropathy sufferers can be overwhelmed by the seemingly simple process of choosing what socks to purchase.
Ever stub your toe in the middle of the night going to the bathroom? How about the insane pain you get when stepping on one of your children’s Legos in bare feet? Not much worse than that, right?

Banging your foot on the leg of a sofa or dropping a full grocery bag onto your foot when unloading the car, while still super painful, pales in comparison to the chronic agony of neuropathy.
If you’re reading this it's likely you are currently suffering from the pain and anguish caused by peripheral neuropathy. The weakness and numbness that constantly targets your feet, hands or both can be excruciating and cause you to feel as if you’re missing out on living life. Things you would take for granted before the onset of peripheral neuropathy, like going for a walk, buying groceries, gardening, or even just getting a good night’s sleep, all seem like a luxury at this point.
Remember that one relative that always complained about their knee pain? The same uncle, aunt or grandparent who swore they could tell when it was going to rain based simply on how much their knees “were acting up”? You may have thought they were just joking around when you were younger, but now that you’re older with knee pain of your own maybe you view them in a new light.
