Q: I have RA and will be going on a 12-hour plane trip. It is not severe and I do not take medication except for aspirin occasionally. I cannot sit in one position for very long without pain and stiffness. Will compression socks/stockings help?
A: I am not sure how much they will help. They probably won’t hurt anything though and are a good idea for most travels. I would try a 15-20 strength to start with.
