I always sleep in my compression tights the night of a half marathon race, I find it helps with the muscle stiffness and soreness next day.
No evidence to show it helps but nobody has dies from it yet.
If you go into hospital for an operation, they quite often give you surgical stockings to wear for long periods of time- can't see compression socks being much different
