    I am hearing a lot about compression socks, but a lot of the brands don't specify what the compression rating is. Is there a way to determine what the actual compression is and if so, how do you determine what compression is appropriate?

    It has always been tough for me as a recreational runner to manage running schedules on the weekend if I am so stressed from work. I developed insomnia + sleep apnea and I am currently rehabbing in a sleep apnea clinic.
