Hello Lioness and John Bishop: My legs do not weep,and the compression stockings do not do the job. I am not complaining, just really want to understand the problem. I think there are a number of issues going on. It is good to know you both are there trying to work on the problems that so many of us have. We all know how frustrating it is. Anyway I am hanging on with both hands. I thank you both very much. With your replies it helps to know that I am not alone with the pain. Happy New Year.
